In life, some people let fear hold them back; sometimes it’s the fear of rejection or the fear of failing. This fear hinders us from experiencing our true potential.
You can take a chance or lose the opportunity. What is the worst that can happen? What if it works out? If not, you can always try again. Remember that you only lose when you stop trying.
During my recovery when starting to walk again, I had to overcome the fear of falling, especially since I had fallen within the first two weeks of my stroke. I wanted to get back on my feet so badly that I was willing to take that risk every chance I got. Now I am able to walk for long distances without any aid. This has given me independence and mobility and I’m so glad I didn’t let my fear prevent me from reaching my goals.
They say, in life, it is better to try and fail rather than fail to try. You can either fear everything and run or face everything and rise. The choice is yours.
