What are you Afraid Of?
You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems,
but by confronting them courageously.
You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.
– J. Donald Walters
Don’t be afraid of the dark.
The dark places in your mind.
The dark places in your soul.
The dark places in your heart.
It’s only by going towards those dark, scared, hurt places that you can free yourself from them.
“When we touch what is painful with awareness, the armouring around our heart melts and we become more tender and kind.” Tara Brach
Be willing to be vulnerable.
Share the things you’re afraid to tell others.
Sit with your pain.
Ask for support.
Cry until your tears run dry.
Search for beauty in the dark places.
And when you do…
You’ll start to experience more light than you ever thought possible.
