talking truth to fear

Havi (the chick with the duck) just summarized in one blog post a big arc of self-work I’ve been working on for three years.

It’s called Talking Truth to Fear, and here’s a teeny tiny excerpt:

Your fear is a part of you. So kicking it is like kicking yourself.

You created it. Almost like kicking something you gave birth to.

You created it for a reason. It’s useful to find out what that is.

[…]

Instead of kicking fear, you can dissolve it. It can kick back, but it can’t dissolve *you*.

The only way to get the fear to dissolve is to interact with it. Just like you, it wants to be noticed and cared for.

Thanks for sharing that, Havi. I appreciate it.
