Fucking hell Fear, Don’t Be Such a Pissy Little Diva

jennifer. . .
Fear is such a bloody drama queen.

Hey Steve, don’t go and do that because it’ll blow up in your face and then you’ll have mess all up in your face and everyone will be all like “Hey, look, Steve’s got a whole lot of silly dumb mess all up in his face.”

That kind of thing.

That’s fears job.

Fear makes you afraid of what might happen by telling stories

Turns things into dramas before they’ve had a chance to happen.

Stops you taking a chance by shouting at you like a pissy little diva.

But fear isn’t really so bad.

Fear just wants you to be safe. Warm. Comfortable.

Listening to the stories; that’s where the damage gets done.

Hearing the sound and fury is what keeps you away from change.

Screams, cries, sobbing, wailing, hiding and sometimes foot stamping.

All just ways to get your attention and add weight through drama.

If that’s all you experience of fear, then there’s an opportunity available to you.

See, while fear can shout loud it’s a quiet response that calms it

A response that knows fear is like a frightened child, crying because it’s afraid of the dark.

It’s okay.

Things will be okay.

You’ll be okay.

They’re just stories.

Ignore the tantrums and hissy fits that fear might throw at you and get behind the pissy little diva that fear pretends to be, and you get to comfort the scared child inside.

You get to take care of that part of you, not ignore it through shame.

You get to nurture that part of you, not feed it through inaction.

And you get to love that part of you, not dismiss it through judgement.

Fear, stop being such a pissy little diva and be what you are.

A little bit frightened, and totally lovable.
