Pushing Past Fear To Live In Truth
Last week I had the opportunity to share with a friend some challenges I’m walking through.
I love new challenges, so taking on this one wasn’t anything of consequence.
But my friend’s connection with the challenges I was facing made being vulnerable to him particularly difficult.
I didn't want to hurt him. And when I really thought about it, I didn't want him to see me differently because of the challenges.
It was a selfish motive that revealed how much room I have to grow in the area of caring about how others perceive me.
At the end of the day, I'm glad I was vulnerable.
The connection and support that I'm receiving from those around me is propelling through this challenge. And that's a lot better than allowing the fear of losing a false image to keep me from moving forward.
May I always remember to push past fear of vulnerability and into connection with those closest to me for encouragement and support.
The truth is better than a lie anyway.
Thanks for reading!
