Being a ‘balanced person’ if that is a goal for us, can involve discovering how to find value among fears and doubts.
The presence of invariably considered negative items in our life is something to be accepted. After all, elements outside of ourselves crop up on what seems to be their own schedule. Rather than hoping we won’t encounter them, or indeed limiting beliefs arriving from the depth of our mind, we have other options.
One such choice is that of attempting to find value from them by exploring what the underlying issues are around them. Fears and doubts concerning falling short of expectations may indicate how much we are focused on living up to either our own or others’ performance guidelines.
Worries regarding the direction the future will lead us towards could signify we are uncertain about the validity of our plans. Preparation today will not guarantee a comfortable tomorrow, yet it will probably impact positively in ways unimagined beforehand.
Furthermore, we have the possibility to ponder what our fears and doubts are giving us. Are we clinging onto them as an excuse for not doing this or that? How are they influencing us on a moment by moment basis?
Other considerations along the lines of investigating how to find value among fears and doubts are surely equally interesting; if you’d like to share your input please leave a comment below.
