Fear

We fear the unknown. We fear the darkness. We fear damnation. We fear failing. We fear losing our jobs. We fear our bosses. We fear our gods. We fear our spouses. We fear change. We fear for our lives. We fear for our flesh. We fear for our souls. We fear for our children. We fear the consequences. We fear laws. We fear judgment. We fear being unloved. We fear being hated. We fear conflict. We fear the powerful. We fear being powerless. We fear being wrong. We fear those who are listening. We fear being unfashionable. We fear being uncool. We fear being insignificant. We fear not having enough money. We fear not being good enough. We fear making an ass out of ourselves. We fear saying the wrong thing. We fear losing in an argument. We fear being lonely. We fear being laughed at. We fear our inner demons. We fear making a mistake. We fear the mistakes we’ve made.

We fear ten thousand things and our fears define us. Our fear leads us to faith. Our faiths lead us to fear. Let go of fear and you have no need for faith. Let go of faith and you start letting go of fear.
