I'm Only Human...Face It and Refocus!

Tired of running from the past...the pain.
I have been doing alot of spirit and soul searching. Trying to understand why I continue to hold myself back...

Fear. The fear of not being in control. Not trusting God. Not believing the truth. The truth that I will make it; that I will succeed beyond my greatest expectations. The truth that He loves me...that he doesn't. That I have to forgive myself for my past standstills.

I must stop running from fear and embrace it. Embrace....face it...and overcome the fear. The fear of not singing on key, of being hurt, of not getting the job I want...Fear has so many faces. Time to stop running and pretending I'm not scared. Time to admit I am human and I am scared! Dang even that is scary, lol. Then I must decide what I am going to do to move through it and live on!


This came from my reading in One Day My Soul Just Opened Up...thanks Iyanla!

I wonder if fear is a twisted result of pride. You know, kinda like how you expect everything to be good , but you find yourself in the worst scenarios, with the biggest decisions, and the most god-awful consequences lying in wait of your next move. What do risk or what stake is so grand that the ramifications would leave you destroyed? Is it possible that if I balance my idea of me,aka - human not perfection, I can keep fear from forming in the early stages? How important is it for you to appear perfect to an imperfect world?

You ever notice how once you walk it out in faith that it wasn't as bad as you had imagined in your mind. The enemy has no NEW tricks. Doubt and Fear is one of the favorites. Trust God more than you fear or doubt and when that doesn't work ask him to help you with your unbelief.

i'm right there with you lady. the fear comes from lack of faith and since it's not tangible or visible to the eye, it's a very hard thing to cultivate. again, i'm right there with you.

It is fear of success or failure that keeps many a great mind from reaching their full potential.

Better to put oneself out there and make it happen as opposed to sitting back and letting someone grab those opportunities.

The words are beautiful, I sometimes get this sort of fear bubbling inside of me but I sit and meditate without sound or distraction. Plus I write on my journal, when I do I get this peaceful feeling inside. Silence is the root of spirituality, there's nothing like it on earth...especially when you're facing commotion around you. Great post, thanks for visiting my blog and do come again

I think sometimes we can be our own worse enemy. Sometimes we waste precious time being fearful; but once you get over the hurdle; you realize...wait a minute...why was I scared...but we can always turn that fear into fuel to move to the next step.

Sheila and Mega, your advice is so good that I withheld my comment.

Facing fear makes us vulnerable and it is very hard to appear vulnerable. I myself have a very difficult time appearing vulnerable to people. I have to work on that. Facing what’s not easy to face.

That book was one of the first steps in my journey of renewal for myself. It's a big step to face fear,one of the biggest emotionally for me. But i also learned to take things as they come. Do not try to change things out of fear of not getting what we think is ours to have. I had an uncle who'd always say,"Be careful what you ask for,for fear you just might get it." It was a warning about being mindful of your intentions. Being aware that fear is a natural emotion embrace it and learn from it.
