Faith or Fear?

I want to be able to open up to someone. I mean open up my whole life to them. Tell them about my deepest feelings. Explain to them how my mind works and how I think a lot. Tell them about things from my past. Give them an insight of my childhood memories. Let them know my weaknesses and the things I’m afraid of. Tell them about my strengths. Tell them about my dreams. Tell them about my goals. Tell them about every thing I’ve been through in life. Tell them about my family history.

I want to open up and be my authentic self and not feel like I am wearing a mask, or trying to impress or fit in. Only God knows how bad I want to open up. However, FEAR is holding me back. The fear of opening up to someone and then being left for the things I wanted to be so open about. The fear of opening up and being frowned upon. The fear of opening up and being judged. The fear of opening up and having my business spread to numerous people.

Everyday, I am a work in progress trying to let go of these fears. A wise person once told me “There is no FAITH with FEAR”, which is ABSOLUTELY true. How can a person have strong Faith if they are constantly thinking of fears? At this moment, I am going to choose Faith over Fear and tell myself this:

I will be able to open up to someone. Tell them about my deepest feelings. Explain to them how my mind works and how I think a lot. Tell them about things from my past. Give them an insight of my childhood memories. Let them know my weaknesses and the things I’m afraid of. Tell them about my strengths. Tell them about my dreams. Tell them about my goals. Tell them about every thing I’ve been through in life. Tell them about my family history.

I will open up and be my authentic self and not feel like I am wearing a mask, or trying to impress or fit in. Only God knows how good I will feel once I open up. Nothing will hold me back. I have faith that when I open up to someone they will stay and listen. They will not frown upon me. I have faith that I won’t be judged. & I know they will be trustworthy.

I WILL CHOOSE FAITH OVER FEAR
