Dear Mr. Fearful [Daily Prompt: Shape Up or Ship Out]

Daily Prompt: Shape Up or Ship Out.

Dear Mr. Fearful,

You don’t allow to be spontaneous.  You don’t let me take many risks and any risks I do take, you make me crazy with all the negative possibilities.  You have been around way too long and I should have outgrown you already.  You make me scared.  You give me intense anxiety.  You interfere with my day-to-day life.

I am continuously working on ways to stop you and your hindering ways.  I plan on being rid of you once and for all.  Fear only leads to failure.   With fear, the doors of beautiful opportunities are slammed shot and bolted shut.  I want to live without you.  I want to be more spontaneous, more courageous and take more risks!

So, pack your bags Mr. Fearful, I don’t want you to shape up, I just want you to ship out!

Truthfully not yours,

  1. Excellent point. Shaping up fear just allows it to exist under the guise of stuff we can more easily justify being afraid of. But, that’s where fear gets all it’s power. From us being afraid of it. If we weren’t afraid of fear, would it even exist???
