Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real
Monday, July 15, 2013
A friend of mine heard this in a church talk Sunday. I love the idea. Think about it, most of the things that we fear never come to pass. We worry for nothing.
On this journey to a fitter body I have felt fear. Most of the time it is for nothing.
I fear a change in my relationship with my family that will not be good.
I fear that I will never be able to eat the carbs I "love" again.
I fear that I will not be able to find clothes that are comfortable, modest and stylish.
I fear that my body will not look as good as I hope.
I fear the imagined saggy skin.
I fear that it won't matter for my diabetic control.
I fear many things.
As you can see these things when brought outside my head are not worth the worry. Most of them are false. But, they at some moments appear real.
Part of this journey for me is learning what is real. What do I want and how willing am I to get it. I am willing to work despite the fear because in reality it is not real it only appears so.
