Sometimes some things leave an impact on you. It might be small or it might be big, but the print that it leaves just remains there forever.
I read a book once, which had a saying in it “What you are afraid of is never as bad as what you imagine. The fear you let build up in your mind is worse than the situation that actually exists.”
That quote hit so hard and was completely true.
Things are never as bad as you make them out to be. It’s just the fear in our heads that makes it harder. Read it again, and just think about it. Is it not true? In the end, isn’t it just the fear that’s holding us back? That made up scenarios and opinions which might not come from others.
Every situation looks tougher than the last one. Every fear is greater than the next one.
There’s another saying in that book, “Sometimes fear can be good. When you are afraid things are going to get worse if you don’t do something, it can prompt you into action. But it is not good when you are afraid that it keeps you from doing anything.”
A little bit can do wonders. However, too much of anything can be harmful, whether it be fear or praise. Being afraid shouldn’t be an option. What’s the worst thing that could even happen? And who would even remember it after some time?
I definitely recommend that you read this book, and see for yourself how it impacts you.
