I believe that it's better to face your greatest fear and fail than to never try to face your fear at all.
I've got acrophobia. It probably developed after a suggestion in my formative stages.
I have dived from the top board but I never ever really enjoyed it. Now I don't. I don't see any signs at all of the situation improving.
Even now I would like to get rid of this phobia. Got any suggestions?
Oops! So sorry I got the impression you were offering help to get over fears and phobias. Your post and your pseudonym suggests just that. I realized that the case was different. My mistake. Cannot delete my post now. My apologies.
Many people do not lead true, authentic lives at all. They do not OWN their own lives but live the lives that their parents, society, religious authorities, and others deem that they should live. It is at sadly at death that they realize that they never led authentic lives at all. Many people realize only too late that what they could have been.
I agree with gmwilliams...people don't know what they're missing when they decide to how big of world is out there and step out of the box.
I don't need to have an interesting, wondrous life. When I die, who cares how much enjoyment I gave to myself? There are many people and animals that are not being granted their basic needs. What really matters is the impact that you have on others.
Imagination is much more powerful than reasoning. To stimulate the mind's fantasizing abilities, use colorful imagery rather than dry data and facts. This is a great healing process.
That reminded me of one of my favorite quotes!
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
Guess who? Albert Einstein!
Those who want to do something will; those who want to appear to do something will talk about it.
The 1 life that we subsume will inevitability end. It is wise to fulfill it, while it lasts. Fear is only a physiological factor, of the many we contain. Do no fear your greatest fear, but embrace it. - The Wise Man
There is nothing to fear but fear itself. Facing the fear is better than not trying.
Running from yourself guarantees you lose, welcoming who you really are promises great moments.
Man says "Show me and I'll trust you"
God says "Trust me and I'll show you"
Diamond is a form of carbon and it is the hardest naturally occurring material.
"In the beginning, the Universe was created. This has made a great deal of people angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move."
"A man must know his destiny. if he does not recognize it, then he is lost. Fate will reach out and tap a man on the shoulder,and fate will point out to him what fork in the road he should take, if he has the guts, he will take it." Condensed version of a Quote by Gen. George S. Patton
Wearing glasses does not make a person ugly or smart. Taking them off does not make a person beautiful or stupid.
we have but a short time on this earth so we should not waste our time on hate or worry.
There is nothing that important that it is worth worrying about.
You have no control over what is going to happen next, so no point worrying.
A smile does not not cost us anything but makes life so beautiful.
Whatever I do is only good in so far as it makes the world better, and the only deeds worth doing are the ones that are done out of Love. (excerpt from my essay on Who Is Christ To Me)

If you are a member of a religious group, you'll find that they frown upon thinking for yourself. If you ask any questions, that would appear to go against the doctrine, you might as well have insulted the entire religion.

What was your greatest fear as a new hubber if any?Many of us during the beginning phases, and learning stages as a hubber were mostly lost, maybe slightly confused about things, or many of us just had no idea what we were doing besides what we knew best, which was to write our hearts out. If once...
