Have you ever been so afraid to do something that you’d do anything else just to avoid doing that thing?
Like being so afraid to write your keynote speech that you organized your silverware drawer?
Or so afraid to have the conversation with your best friend about how your feelings were hurt, that you washed all the linens in the house?
Or so afraid to go for that promotion at work, that you decided to start training for a marathon?
I’ve been there SO MANY times.
But a couple of years ago, I realized that some fears are buried so deeply, and their black magic has worked its way into our lives so seamlessly, that we can’t even see them. Sometimes someone else has to point them out to us.
