Fear. There’s nothing else like it. It creeps from the depths of your very marrow and shutters through your bones. It chills your skin and raises even the tiniest hairs on the back of your neck. It suppresses your abilities, causing your mind to lack the concentration needed to perform throughout the day. It lurks, slowly waiting, watching, and observing. Calculating the perfect time to catch you off guard. Then it attacks! And consumes like a fly caught in the deadly spiders web. You will be constricted as the web of fear is spun around your poor helpless body, poisoned from the venomous bite. No chance to run. Only to be consumed. It’s over. You are face to monstrous face, and what power that face has over you. Whatever it may be. So many things in this world to be afraid of. The inevitability of having a fear is the same as the chances of getting a scar. Many people have… And I almost doubt there are who do not. Some believe a person is able to overcome their fears. But in reality, in order to eliminate these fears a person must first illuminate them. Remove all obscurities. Know the fear, understand it. Be sure of what exactly it is you are afraid of. Like the fear of death, in some cases it’s not the fear of death, but the fear of not living up to expectations prior to death. Understanding why the fear exists is troublesome and tiring because it could be many reasons, or perhaps just one. In the same example, the fear of dying without living up to expectations would mean there may be people who surround you that look up to you or that hold you at a high standard. When it comes down to conquering an internal battle such as fear, it takes the ability to accept the raw truth.. Fear is only as strong and powerful as you make it out to be. Simple, you chose to be afraid, you choose to let it control you. Your mind, your choice. So, looking fear in the face, staring down at you with 8 large eyes and no where to go.. Stand tall and brave. You have the power of choosing. You have a greater power over fear, mindset is all it takes. Believe in the power of your strength, because in the scariest times of your life, you will decide to be the victor of the battle of the spider and the fly. You are no fly, you are man, and are capable of anything and everything. Break through that web.
