Whenever somebody asked me about my fear, I usually said ” I am very much afraid of ghosts and snakes”
But I know that, ghosts and snakes are not my biggest fears..
My fear was something different and difficult which was a secret that I didn’t let others know..
OK, let me elaborate on the same…
My biggest fear was “Expressing myself to others”
I was more concerned about what would others’ think of me ..I was reluctant to share my true feelings to them ..I felt like trapped as I didn’t have that courage to talk back..
I was angry and cried even for small things..I was very much disturbed as I had suppressed my feelings for so long…
I finally realized that if I continue being like this, I will always be complaining and cannot enjoy or live my life to the fullest..
So, I did the following to overcome my fear:
- I started asking myself what I really want in a particular situation and prioritized my feelings..
- I became more intuitive in nature..
- I realized that there is no need to impress everybody in this world – Let me first impress myself…
- I slowly started to ignore the reaction of other people on what I expressed/said – It is difficult to implement but I was sure that I shouldn’t be influenced anymore by the outcome..
I tried very hard to overcome this fear in my life…
I think I have succeeded in expressing myself to others..I have experienced the liberated feeling I get when I speak out…
