We all have subconscious fears lying beneath our hard and robust exterior. We all may try and avoid speaking about them or lying that they don’t exist, but they do. More often than not, we somehow manage to make our fears so big and so important that they get the better of us. What do we mean by that?
Fears are a familiar feeling to have as long as they are in control. If you let fear overwhelm you and take control of your emotions, you become paranoid. You seek excessive control in each and every aspect of your life because you fear it will go wrong. Most times, this fear is irrational. It stems from deep trauma or impact or a life-changing event that has happened for us to think this way. We must always keep our fears in check for it not to take control of our life.
Let us look at some of the benefits of letting go of fear and embracing the moment.
Once you let go of your fears and control, you are less judgmental about people. You are more accepting of their flaws and innate nature that they display, though it may be different from yours. People come in all forms and temperaments. Every person cannot be a fitment to what our understanding is. When you let go of fear, you tend to trust people more for what they are and be more accepting.
Faith is reinforced
When we all are caught up with our fears, we do not stop and believe in what life is offering to us. You tend to lose faith that things get better and somewhere lose faith in yourself. Fears have a way of lowering our self-confidence and letting us believe we don’t have it in ourselves to make it work. By letting go of our fears, we reinforce that confidence and faith. The resolve and belief that everything works out the way it’s supposed to come back.
Letting go of grudges
Many times, it happens that someone takes advantage of us in a way that leaves us scarred and devastated. We hold it against them. Not just them, we hold it against each person even without trying to find out what their intent is. It is perfectly natural for anyone to behave in this way. It is also essential that we let go of that fear of being taken for granted, and let the old grudges go. Once we let go of the fear, we realize that the world and its people are not ideal. We have to take life as it comes.
Stress is a common factor in everyone’s life. When you let go of fear, you by default, feel less stressed. How? We stress because we want everything to stay In our control and fear that nothing should go wrong. That fear is the stress of making everything right. Once the fear goes, the stress goes away.
Don’t let fear get in the way of you living your life to the fullest. Let go and embrace the moments that life has to offer.
