LikeLiked by 2 people Reply What about success makes you be afraid? LikeLike Reply I don’t know. Perhaps it’s all in my mind, but I feel like successful people are expected to perform at a certain level and behave a certain way all the time. Successful people live under a microscope and their every move is scrutinized for any little misstep. When a person is successful, others will look for a crack in their armor, even a small one, and then crucify them for it. You lose a certain level of anonymity when you’re successful.

So I chose to embrace it and learn from it, instead of fearing it. LikeLiked by 1 person I’m most afraid of myself, in particular, being an obstacle to myself and those I love. Especially in the sense of where my weaknesses lie, becoming a liability instead of an asset. I do not wish this feeling onto anyone, but I’m sure I am not alone. I wish you all strength in overcoming your fears. All of the best, M.C.M. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Can a higher level of self-understanding help you with this?
