Points To Ponder on FEAR:

87. If you are facing a new challenge or being asked to do something that you have never done before don’t be afraid to step out. You have more capability than you think you do but you will never see it unless you place a demand on yourself for more. ~ Joyce Meyer

88. It’s okay to be crazy and scared and brave at the same time! ~ Kelly Epperson

89. But fear is confusing. It tears you in two. Half of you wants to run far, far away, but the other half is paralyzed, frozen, immovable. And the hard part is that you never know which half is going to win. ~ Melody Carlson

90. Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. ~ Neil Gaiman

91. As Grams treaded water, she tapped my forehead. ‘What’s in here, Poppy, is scarier than anything you’ll encounter in the depths of the ocean. An imagination is a powerful thing. ~ Shelley Coriell

92. What is fear after all? It is indecision. You seek some way to resist, escape. There is none. ~ Anne Rice

93.
I am convinced that the deepest desire within each of us is to be liberated from the controlling influences of our own psychic madness or patterns of fear. All other things-the disdain of ordinary life, the need to control others rather than be controlled, the craving for material goods as a means of security and protection against the winds of chaos-are external props that serve as substitutes for the real battle, which is the one waged within the individual soul. ~ Caroline Myss

94. If we let things terrify us, life will not be worth living. ~ Seneca
