Good luck with that.
Fear - and let's just let it be synonymous with anxiety, depression, worry - sucks.
I struggled with feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, and sadness last week. "Leave your fear behind" as the saying goes (in this particular image, anyway). But how? Leaving it behind seems to only happen after I've gone through it. Exercise, meditation, prayer, music, a glass of red wine. They often seem to do very little while the only true cure is to simply walk through it, wait till you're on the other side. And as long as you're still walking, you'll eventually get there.
It's pretty lonely when you're in the midst of the walk, though.
I'm hoping that today we can find some sort of community in the comments. Find camaraderie in the commonality, or something. Is it misery loves company? Maybe a little, but for whatever reason, we're often so reticent to talk out what's really ailing us. Embarrassment, shame. Transparency would do a world of good. Whatever fear you've got, write it out here if you'd like. Anonymous comments allowed (cause sometimes, myself included, we're not ready for total transparency).
