Being afraid of fear

It has been absolutely fascinating these past few days, to begin to see the complexity of emotions that I had never really thought to question. Something that was fixed has begun to move and shift and change. I am fascinated to discover how I habitually shun the emotion of fear.  I turn away from it immediately, or try to suppress it or run from it. Because I am afraid of it! I am afraid of fear, that’s kind of funny. But now I have another option. I can stand and turn and look it in the face and see what it looks like. See if I can remember to do this next time it comes to visit.

May all beings be happy ♡
