Overcoming Our Fears

Let’s talk about those infamous fears that tend to obstruct our every day lives. Such fears include that of meeting new people, the fear of being alone in the later years of your life, or even the fear of not being able to accomplish your goals. Sometime or another, we have all found or will find ourselves facing at least one of these fears, or maybe something else along these lines. In no way is having these fears a terrible thing because let’s face it, if you didn’t have these fears, well, I would probably fear for you.

When it comes to thinking about one’s future, who’s to say what will or won’t happen? No one really knows, so a bit of uneasiness or anxiousness is perfectly okay. But when you fear something to the point of it getting in the way of your every day life, that’s when we find ourselves with a bit of a problem. Some people are afraid of making new friends, some fear for never meeting that special someone, and other may be afraid of not accomplishing their life-long goals. Well, to overcome such fears so that you can ultimately make new friends and meet a partner to get romantically involved with, you’re going to have to put yourself out there and give it a shot. There is nothing to lose, except your shyness and your fear. We all need to be around people every so often, because seclusion can eventually lead to depression, which then leads to needing a psychologist, and we all know how pricy that route tends to be.

In a recent post of mine, I mentioned that we should all love unconditionally. A fellow blogger commented saying that he used to love unconditionally, but it’s difficult to do so because love is a two way street. When it comes to meeting new people or new prospects to become romantically involved with, regardless of the circumstances, think of yourself as a magnet, if you will, and imagine that wherever you go, people will be attracted to you. If you are meant to be friends with someone or be with that person on a more intimate level, then you will magnetize that person. On the other hand, if you are not meant to be friends with someone, you will simply repel one another, and that will be the end of it. In order to see the process of magnetism in action, you have to make some kind of an effort when it comes to introducing yourself to others around you. Don’t count on others to come over and introduce themselves to you, because if you keep waiting for that to happen and it never does, you’ll end up spending the rest of your life just waiting. Making friends is a work in progress, and if you don’t make friends right away, keep in mind that the time will come when you will eventually meet someone with whom there will be mutual attraction or magnetism.

Close your eyes and imagine yourself overcoming a situation in which you fear meeting new people; you fear of talking to someone whom you hope to become romantically involved with; or you fear accomplishing certain objectives and goals that you set out for yourself. See the success of you conquering your fear. Feel yourself achieving great things in life. These fears that you hold on to are doing nothing but keeping you down, so why not break through the glass ceiling which has been hovering over you for so long? You can accomplish anything that you set your mind to so open your eyes and overcome these fears.

    I couldn’t agree more… The mind is a powerful thing. You can choose to live positively or you can choose to live in fear or negativity. I’ve learned there is bondage in fear and freedom in love.

    Fear is torment and limitation. If we can overcome it, then we can accomplish just about anything in life.
