LikeLiked by 6 people Reply I get it… the thing is that your past cannot predict your future. Only you and your present can do that 🙂 LikeLike Reply I can say that pain, and the fear of it, is keeping me in a place I don’t like. We’ll see what treatment does. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Are you afraid of it getting worse? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yes and no. I had a nerve block, which did some good as far as they physical pain. The downside is that I tend to a “prednisone psychosis” that makes me very manic and easily frustrated. It’s a trade off, and I’m hoping that I can find a way around the medication that doesn’t work, for one that doesn’t make me crazed. LikeLike It keeps me from fully pursuing my own passions.

LikeLike Reply Jumping with a parachute, bungee jumping, water (I don’t know how to swim), roller coasters…😌😊 LikeLike It’s making me write, so I guess that’s a good thing lol. My fear is obviously falling behind on writing and being forgotten. LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Awesome! It’s the biggest fear you have? If so, you’ve beaten it! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yeah, the main fear is becoming obsolete via my writing, so that propels me forward. Thank you! LikeLike It keeps me from putting myself “out there.” I believe no one wants to hear me, and that if they did, they would think I’m very stupid or ridiculous. This has often been my experience, so I fear more humiliation or rejection. I have to force myself to do uncomfortable things…like blog my pain, for instance.

But then I think about the future of my children and grandchildren.

I try to look at fear as a teaching emotion and it’s helping me SLOWLY get over that. For what it’s worth, by “teaching emotion” all I mean is I try to step back when I feel fear taking over and remind myself that even if I do actually fail, it’s to teach me something not make me feel bad about myself/the situation. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I’ll try my best to reach that point where I only think of fear as a teaching emotion, because then it’s going to be much easier to start moving forward 🙌🏼 LikeLiked by 1 person Your attitude is inspiring! I think you’re so fair in saying “try my best” bc it’s hard AF. It’s a process. Remembering that progress is more important than perfection has been hard for me, but I hope you’ll be able to rise above quicker! Hit me up if you need support! I got you!!

LikeLike Reply Having lung cancer puts a damper on things and you suddenly fear things you once didn’t (like not working and losing your job, relying on your husband’s job for insurance and finding out they are closing his plant and he’s losing his job this week, freezer on the blitz, dog having some kind of episode and I swore he was dying)..seems like all I’m in fear of is happening. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply I’m very sorry to hear about that… since when you seem to be in fear of what is happening? LikeLike Reply It’s been months that Ive been living in fear. I don’t want to be sick and I don’t want to die. I didn’t want my husband to lose his job, because he held my insurance. LikeLike My fear, stops me from living outside the marital box. Even though we are divorced, I still have myself convinced that I need him, and that there is no way out, simply because I can’t see it. It sucks… LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Do you think it can help to be more precise in the regards of what exactly do you need him for? If you find something else or someone else that can help with that, maybe this need will slowly disappear… LikeLike Reply I try not to get tangled up in fear. But I cannot help to think about what my grandchildren will face if we continue to fight with other and abuse the planet. LikeLike Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
