Fear lies.

Fear hates success.

Fear stops you living.

Fear creates a locked prison.

Fear doesn’t care about your life.

Fear pushes away people who love you.

Fear creates monsters in the darkness of your mind.

Fear stops you from asking for help.

Fear wants to be your master.

Fear doesn’t allow self love.

Fear is all encompassing.

Fear loves helplessness.

Fear paralyses.

    So true. As I have said in the past, I love that old Dave Allen thing, ‘There is nothing to fear except fear itself’ (I know it’s Roosevelt originally, but for me it’s Dave Allen)

    Yes Tegan – that line particularly about fear wanting to master you is so very true. That was something that Burbrick was talking about in his article – that he was teaching children to become masters of their fear, rather than the other way round. Thank you for sharing this poignant post of Sunshine Sundays. xx

    Do you know what I found hardest about this week’s prompt? Separating fear from anxiety. That’s a massive struggle for me, and as I read through your words here I found myself seamlessly substituting ‘fear’ for ‘anxiety’ and nodding along. We can’t let either of them win!
