A new friend asked me about the things I fear the most.
My answer – The thing I fear the most is harm coming to my children.
And there are other fears also. Fears that are deep seeded.
When the fear is deep, I go deeper.
I fear stagnation and staying the same.
I fear lack of growth and progress.
I fear mediocrity and never reaching my true potential.
I fear being average.
I fear letting those I love down and letting myself down.
I fear becoming lazy and ‘settling’ for what is.
I fear giving up.
I fear dying without leaving my mark and not setting a powerful example for my children.
I fear not standing up for myself and not holding my own.
I fear constantly doing and being what people expect of me.
I fear having to ever compromise my truth.
I fear complacency and contraction.
I fear having friends by default and surrounding myself with people who watch me stay the same and who do not push me to be more.
These are the fears that I never want to stop fearing.
These are the fears that give me drive.
These are the fears that fuel me.
I love you my fear.
I love you.
