What is Fear?
Is it facing death?
Is it jumping out of a plane?
Is it ousting a spider from the house?
The truth is, fear can be dealing with all or any of these things and many more.
Fear is different for everyone, it comes in many different disguises.
Bravery is facing your fears and conquering them.
Bravery is learning how strong you are, how you are able to face your fears.
It doesn't matter if this fear seems large or small – facing it is what is important.
For me, my greatest fear is facing the dentist. I feel like I want to run away, I feel sick! I sweat, my legs feel weak.
But I know that I must face my fear, I must do what scares me – I must have courage!
I know that once the ordeal is over, I will feel great.
Conquering that fear, being courageous makes me feel good about myself.
I know that the next time, I will still be afraid, but I know that I can do it and each time gets just a little easier.
Whatever your fear, big or small, rational or not, face it.
Use that inner courage that you have, that strength that is within.
Take small steps, pushing yourself a little more each time.
Learn to control that fear bit by bit, be strong.
Be brave, conquer your fears, and grow.
