I have many goals. Of course one is to lose weight,b but there are many other things that I am hoping to improve in. Some of these goals are fear related. Others are because of an eating and fluid. I am also hoping to improve in confidince, self-esteem, organization, reducing anxiety attacks, and be able to handle frustration and be able to deal with the amount of being overwhelmed. Some of my fears are fear of falling, fear of failure, fear of changes, fear of unfamilare suroundings, fear of rejections, fear of abandoment, fear of wording things wrong, fear of being in trouble, and fear of answering machines.

    Nan Merrill's book Psalms for Praying has helped me a lot with fears. Here are some samples:

"For You alone can put my fears to rest and transform them into peace." Psalm 44

"Look not on my past mistakes, but on the aspirations of my heart." Psalm 51

"As they are faced, each fear is diminished." Psalm 63

And my favorite: "Become like a garment wrapped around me; clothe me in the raiment of your love. Then will I be strong to face my fears with a love that is firm and sure." Psalm 109

It takes time and practice, and prayer if you're a praying person, to change your image of yourself....

    You have a clear idea of what you want to improve on. That's the beginning. Go for it and good luck.

    Have you considered a therapist? All those fears limit life.

    Isn't the first step in tackling a fear to identify it?? I wish you the best in conquering your fears.
