Fear has had a hold on me for too long.
I wasn’t even aware how strong that hold was until now.
All around me there is suffering. Illness, broken relationships, strained relationships, unhealthy choices, people hurting.
It seems everyone around me is hurting right now. I have been praying every day for so many loved ones….and the list is growing.
It could easily fill me with fear.
Love often leads to loss. Actually, it always does. Even in relationships that don’t end, no one lives forever. Loss is inevitable.
But, I don’t want to miss out on loving the amazing people in my life while I am blessed to have them. I don’t want to be closed to new people to love if they are meant to bless my life…even if through a painful lesson.
No more fear.
This is going to be hard.
I need to trust.
Trust God. Trust myself. Trust others.
It always comes back to vulnerability.
It is the only way.
Here I go…
