I believe everyone has experienced a time when they had extreme discomfort about something, fear, nightmarish even. And yet they persevered through the fear; despite the fear.
And the fear proved to be a false pretense of the outcome. One was better off and grateful for having ignored the warnings and following through.
One might ask, “How does one differentiate false warnings from founded fear?”
Easy: there is nothing to fear.
I am grateful for the glimpses I’ve been given into reality.
No shame. No fear.
