But I’m not ashamed. Every fear is a shadow. Think about it.Always with you. Amorphous in shape. Impossible to pin down. It just runs as fast as you do when you try to get away from it. The things you do to cut yourself off from your fears don’t work.
So if you aren’t going to be able to get rid of your fear, what do you do?
You don’t do anything.If you want it to stop chasing you, you stop running. If you want it to shrink, sit down with it.
Make friends with it. Accept it. Get comfortable with the fact that you’re never going to beat your shadow into submission. See how it shows you yourself. And then let it do its thing. Just because you will always carry your fear with you doesn’t mean you have to let it run your life.
