100 word wednesday: fear is why

Pay attention. Drop your guard. Be honest. Look intently.

Maybe for the first time, see clearly

that the role of fear in your life

is focused around what you choose to do in your darkest moments,

not what you find an excuse to avoid.

Fear is not only holding you back from the potential good;

it is forcefully driving you forward,

but in the wrong direction.

To protect your self-image, your public persona.

To defend your tribe, your mental constructs.

To collect the right objects.

To vindicate the unpredictable voices in your head.

And where is Love?

Drowned out again.
