Inspired by a recent comment I received.
For thousands of years humans have always tried to explain the seemingly unexplainable. What is life and how does it work? Science has explained so much, but will we every truly understand how it all works?
Fear, worry, pride, and emotions like that (all of which have a bad reputation) have an important purpose in life. Most of the time they are defensive mechanisms designed to protect ourselves. If you can learn to control these emotions, get the most out of them, learn to live with fear, and drop the anxiety, life will be so much better. I’ve been thinking a lot about this and trying to improve my own relationship with emotions like fear.
The moral of the story is this: fear can be good, but it often holds you back, so let go and live the life you’ve always dreamed of!
The value of other people’s opinions, advice, and perspective is extremely valuable, but I often find myself forgetting my own opinions, advice, and perspective in favor of what other people have told me. It’s a common cycle for me. I seek out opinions, try out things that don’t feel right, and eventually find myself coming back to where I started. I think it’s important to value your own opinions and respect your ability to know what is right for you. Of course you should value the opinions of other people and their advice, but ultimately it is you who has to make the decisions in your life.
