Fear or love… it is a choice. If I could put one tool on the table, it would be to create awareness around what the fear is: Fear of heartbreak? Fear of control? Fear of being controlled? Fear of being unseen? Fear of loss? The fear lives within and is embedded in a story that is simply untrue, and can therefore be adjusted.
No matter how self-aware we are, we still dance with fear, and I believe that fear lies beneath our inner self talk, our patterns, and our core fracture wound. When we love, we hurt; it is inevitable, but choosing fear over love is protecting and preventing ourselves from experiencing life and love. It’s my perspective that choosing love is choosing freedom… it is choosing YOU. Your curiosity about getting back to love leads me to think that this is ultimately what you desire. When curiosity is at the table, so is vulnerability, and as we know, vulnerability can be fear inducing because we’ve learned that vulnerability can hurt. As you can see, it’s a bit of a cycle!
