Fear, A Real Short One~
Addresses how fear once bound, a person now free, of fear, anxiety, and panic.
A variation of this is something I wrote about 6-7 years ago, when I was a 'total agoraphobic' for the most part.
We were on the Interstate, I had a panic attack, and this (variation) came to me, I jotted it down somewhere on a piece of paper in the car, after that I started 'thinking it' and eventually living it.
To say I am anxiety free would be a total lie, but to say I am much better is total true . While the anxiety will never be totally gone, as I have the type people are born with, in my age I can say I am better at coping now.
So now you know the story of my 'thought' on fear I said I would not be getting 'personal here' but to me this is a milestone i have crossed and perhaps it may touch someone else as it did me when I wrote it so long ago.
Help, I hope for anyone deluged with anxiety and all the 'sic' wonderful symptoms that come with it.
I am me, I am comfortable in my 'own skin' much of the time.
Fear once controlled my life
Until one day it struck me
I had no life
Because of fear
Living with fear ruling me
Meant I was not living at all
I let my fear go
My fear no longer binds me.
~Peace Love Light~
Light too, is where you find it
Do not be afraid to seek it
Even in subtle places
