What Does Love Do? What do you do when you feel persecuted by people/situations/circumstances etc.? It is so easy to sink into fear, and default to defensiveness, cynicism, anxiety, blame, and anger. Isn’t it? So what does love do? Really and truly and honestly. What […]
Old Habits Die Hard My 2017 resolution was to take action against my negative internal dialogue by keeping a daily thought journal. The first thing I noticed was an increase in self-awareness, and, as the days went on, I found myself thinking less negative thoughts […]
Fear vs Love
What does that mean?
Does choosing love mean that you ignore your fear, or repress it, or try to beat it by thinking positive? No way. It doesn’t. Positive thinking is null and void if that means burying your head in the sand. Positive thinking without action only exacerbates the problem, and results in disappointment.
In order to choose love, you need to connect with, and courageously feel your emotions. It’s no good pretending your fear isn’t there. It is there. It’s there for a reason. And if you’re smart, you will learn from it.
I have come to understand that balance is the secret ingredient to everything.
When it comes to love vs fear, it’s important to distinguish between fearing (and by extension repressing) our feelings, versus feeling our feelings. It’s not only important, but crucial, to move through all of our emotions as opposed to ignoring/repressing/pretending otherwise, because the latter approach causes greater problems and a greater disconnection with ourselves and our intuition.
