Are we afraid of the wrong things and why? Were we once told that if we did wrong, our fingers will burn off and we will go to hell or that we will not succeed? Before answering these questions, it seems obvious to understand where it originates: the root.
When we were ‘fearless’ babies our parents naturally protected and loved us. Our parents guided and controlled our every move. Our parents taught us what they knew from right or wrong, meaning their opinions from their own life experiences. During our growing years, we developed a child conditioning and conditioned by our parents. Child conditioning is a natural phenomena and protection for ourselves, and is followed by our own little inner voice: unique, strong and sometimes defensive. Powered daily by guilt and judgement with a purpose: to control our very being.
Today as modern adults, we live more complexed lives with larger responsibilities surrounded by our high-tech devices eventually leading our own opinions and creating our own life experiences. Generally a life better than our parents or just plain the opposite. The result: fear of wrong and attached to right, accompanied by either fear of failure or attached to happiness. Leading to a life of longterm suffering…..
We can avoid the fear and detach ourselves from the known and the unknown. We can decide to own our little voice, cut the roots of our childhood conditioning and eventually take back our power.
And how do we do that? By taking the stand to own your voice. Own your inner voice and tell it how you want to live, how you want to choose your decisions, that you want happiness instead of fear and eventually detaching yourself from the outcome of your decisions.
Find out what is right for you. Get to know yourself, who you really are and use various methods to help and support you. The world is an amazing place to explore and it will support you on your journey of self discovery and eventually enlightenment.
If you believe in yourself, stand your ground and walk your talk, then answer this question: ”How can I be afraid of the wrong things, when I know what wrong means to me?”
