Fear is the cheapest room in the house. I would like to see you living in better conditions.Hafez
Fear is always future-based. We fear what might happen later. But the future doesn’t exist now, in the present, the only moment in which we are ever alive. So though our fear may be visceral, it is based on a misconception, that the future is somehow now. It’s not.Norman Fischer, “No Beginning, No Ending, No Fear”
Don’t let fear and anxiety paralyze you to inaction. Remind yourself that fear only exists as an emotion to prepare you for a life-threatening situation, which is why our brains shift into survival mode when we experience fear.
This moment, right here and right now, is all we have. What’s behind us are memories and what’s ahead is unknown. If you devote your energy to worrying about the future, then this moment is going to become a memory you’ll look back on and wonder how it might have been different if you would have been there for it.
Never forget that I love you, and that excludes no one.
