#DigDeepYogis day 8 - what scares you?
Everything scares me and nothing scares me. The thing that I was most scared of - losing someone I loved, someone I thought I couldn't live without - happened. It's been the hardest year of my life but I am okay. I can still experience full happiness and deeply enjoy life. The worst happened and it didn't take me down for good.
After my worst fear was realized, I thought other things couldn't scare me anymore. Fear of failure, of what people think, of making the wrong choice, of taking risks, mass shootings and car crashes and home invasions and losing my reproductive rights - those things still scare the shit out of me! But I also understand that life is short, and if you want to do something or go somewhere or say something...just do it! Don't let fear cripple you. I also understand that more bad things can - and will - happen. But I know that I'm a fighter, and so much stronger than I ever gave myself credit for. It doesn't matter what scares me - I'm going to do what I want, be what I want, stand up for what's right, and carry mace on my keychain.
