The biggest fear is fear itself. No human is without fears; even in the deepest recesses of our souls, some fear is lurking. And this is not bad, quite the opposite. Fears mean limitations of the mind. Just as our body is a limitation of physical matter, our mind also means an unknown territory, a frontier to our capabilities. When these boundaries are not imposed by a disease or a syndrome, that is when it is purely and exclusively a fear. The problem with these limitations is that they may get to function as a constraint. Sometimes fear becomes a barrier, which prevents us from moving forward. However, when you overcome fears, you get higher. When you get over your fears you grow as a human being, you break that boundary, entering a new world of possibilities.
The problem is when fear is fear itself. That’s when people get stuck. They avoid facing life because of the fear of being afraid. In other words, we are avoiding self-growth, we don’t move forward. At the outset, fears might seem as high as huge fortress walls, impossible to access. However, beyond fears, there is a new world containing hides greatness, happiness, and more importantly, life. We should think if we want to live avoiding the bitterness of fears, or to live our lives at their fullest. Because unfortunately, life truly begins from the moment our fingers crush the huge rocks that make up the great fortress of fears; that’s when we really begin to live.
Think about it, spend a few minutes of your time to think if you stopped living in fear of being afraid. Think about which side of the fortress you are. Surely there is still enough time to pass through the walls.
