Getting through a backlog of writing and reflection, I posed a question like this to my friends that came from my pastor:
What are you afraid of?
and once they answered
Why are you afraid of it?
It’s difficult to verbalize and confront your fear. It makes it real. It makes it tangible.
By asking why you’re able to think about the root cause for the fear itself. Most of the time it turns out to be insignificant compared to the benefit of confronting and defeating your fear.
Over the next few posts I’ll explain some fears that I have had over the years, why I’m afraid of them, and what I’m doing to confront them.
