Feeling fear is a measure of your sensitivity, but how you deal with it determines your strength.
It’s easy to confuse the intensity of fear with measuring one’s strength, especially since fear can be paralyzing. However, feeling fear can actually be helpful because it indicates that you are attuned to your emotions and aware of your environment.
By recognizing your fear, you can make better decisions that allow you to take control of the situation. It enables you to respond in a way that you will feel proud of.
Some people say “Do it scared!” And to an extent, I agree. It depends on each situation, obviously. But a good friend once told me that if I feel scared and excited at the same time, it means I should go for it. I’m glad I followed her advice.
