I get on tumblr and find this cognitive dissonance on my feed.
I made this list tonight of all of the things that scare me in this world. I no longer want them inside me so I am putting this list out in the open in hopes that seeing them here will help me see them as they really are just words.
Death of a loved one
Letting loved ones down
My anxiety may end up killing me
I suggest that everyone make a list like this. I know this sounds weird, but trust me this has been one of the most life affirming things I have ever done. As I spend the months fighting this list I will make it grow shorter and shorter. I DO NOT NEED TO FEAR LIFE, LIFE NEEDS TO FEAR ME!
