Do you believe everything in life has a purpose? Do you believe, for example, that there’s a reason why you have to face your fears from time to time? Why are we afraid of certain people or situations? Do you sometimes ask yourself this question or do you let yourself be overwhelmed by the fear?
I do believe everything has a purpose. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to find an answer to why that bird left something on my bicycle seat the other day. What I’m trying to tell you is that I try not to let myself be thrown off by negative emotions or negativity in general. Especially not fear.
Take someone who’s afraid of meeting new people as an example. I think most of us feel some kind of fear when we are about to meet someone new or when we go to a party where most of the people are new to us.
For most of us, fear is an exaggeration in such cases, excitement is more appropriate. For others, however, it can be downright terrifying. What has purpose to do with all this? Well, I know when I feel fear arising that it’s time to push myself to the next level.
