There's nothing to fear. But...
I fear what people think of me. I am terrified of it. I have a greater fear: The FEAR of what people think of me.
Now THAT has weight, eh?
It doesn't matter what people think of me. Remove the fear of what people think of you, understand the insignificance of it, and you arrive, fearless.
Who the heck can do that?
Most of us just stuff it.
The one who walks in freedom walks in recognition of these truths. He holds the hand of this fear,
and runs directly into it.
The faster he runs, the tighter the noose.
Keep running, my friend. You might just run into yourself.
