Fear is our biggest enemy. It is not because it could do danger to us, but because it is somehing that we couldn’t understand. This fear could be as petty as the presence of another person as a threat, to the fear of existential doubt and crisis. All of these fears prey on us because we refuse to acknowledge their existence. Here are three ways to enable us to accept anything, including our fears.
1. Accept All Your Shortcomings
Every human has a bit of narcissism in their veins. We feed our ego based on our life priorities. A person who loves manipulating people loves to take pride in his or her skill. A person who loves overcoming human physical or mental limits is one who takes pride and vanity in his or her own achievements. However, not everyone is perfect. We all have our shortcomings. Acknowledging the fact that we could make mistakes is the first step to accepting anything.
2. Nothing Could Be Changed in the Past
Almost every person in the world has regrets. Regrets are present because people are still attached to their choices. In the end, the world moves forward and it should include you. There is nothing one can change in the past, but one could only change things in the present and the future.
3. Everything Was Meant To Happen For a Reason.
Regardless whether you believe in causality, religion’s divine plan or the simple fact that things just happen, you must understand that everything just happens for a reason. Life is meant to exist and it is our experiences that allow us to become human. Attachments are necessary, but being detached and understanding that it is yourself who is your bestest and most understanding friend allows you to overcome your limits. Everything happens for a reason and in the future, you’ll be realizing the lessons brought to you by this fact.
