How often do you stop yourself from doing something you really want to do because you start worrying about what people will think? You know, like when you are out at a party and everyone is on the dance floor and you really, really, really want to join them but you are stopped with thoughts like, "I'm such a bad dancer" or "People will laugh I'm so awful" or "They are so much better than me".
So there you sit on the sidelines feeling sad, lonely, and basically like a big pile of...
Now people that know me today would not believe me when I say this, but there was a time in my life when I did the exact same thing. I got so caught up in thinking I was a horrible dancer, people would think I looked stupid, everyone else was better at it then me that I would stand on the sidelines aching to join in on the fun but just to darn scared to jump in.
And the truth is you can substitute dancing for anything you wish you
were doing but don't because you are afraid of what people think.
So my question for you today is, in what area of your life is fear keeping you sitting on the sidelines and feeling sad, lonely and aching to join in?
