I have been avoiding writing this post. Not because I didn’t want to, but because I’m not sure how to put all of these feelings into words. I guess, like all things, let’s start at the beginning.
A quick Google book search of the emotion fear will come up with 5,970,000 results and counting. Fear is a response to real or perceived danger, and one I know very well. For a very long time I have allowed my fears to get the best of me.
I am in no way shape or form an expert in meditation. Meditation is actually one of the self-care practices that I have found the most difficult to maintain. I have tried using mantras and ambiance music but nothing seemed to work.
