We have never been, nor will we ever be in control of anything…ever. Wrapping your head around that fact will give you the confidence to manage whatever conflicts you are currently facing. You’ll gain the courage to run directly towards your opposition. Once you stop living in fear, you’ll begin to live authentically and discover your true life’s purpose. You’ll become clear and present, you’ll understand and accept your limits or boundaries, and you’ll develop compassion for yourself and for the things of this world.
Fear is an interpretation of our fight-or-flight survival mechanism. We are naturally scared of the things we can’t control. If we surrender ourselves, though, to the idea that we can’t actually control anything, and then we confront the thing that is causing the anxiety, then our fear evaporates and we find freedom.
