Don't Fear The Saddle! Are You Holding on to Fear or Holding on to Possibilities?
The dictionary defines fear as “an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.”
We often view fear as a weakness, however fear is not abnormal. Having fear can protect us when we are confronted by physical or emotional harm. It allows us to respond quickly and escape a dangerous situation.
On a positive note, fear can also push us or move us forward. When faced with a decision that seems impossible or paralyzing we can choose to face it or be overcome by it. If we choose to face it, we become stronger and we realize we are capable of handling more than we thought possible.
