Fear can be paralysing. It can be caused from simple to traumatic situations. Fear can bulldoze your thoughts and leave you stiff and unable to function.
Because of incidents particularly from the post, I know of some people who will not collect their mail on a regular basis. The fear is from expecting to receive a huge bill needing to be paid or unexpected bad news.
A phone call from a government department can send waves of fear particularly if you think something is wrong.
It is difficult to control fear and even when we know we are being controlled by fear it is very difficult to let it go.
I had an experience recently where I received a call from a government department. As it turned out it was a scam. I knew I had done nothing wrong, but it was the fear that there may have been something I was not aware of. As it turned out thousands of people have been caught up in the same scam.
Yes, it was me who could go to my letter box daily and instead waited for the weekend in fear of what I might receive.
As easy as it is for me to say and yet hard to do – we have to not let fear grab control of us…
Try hard to overcome the control fear can have over you and although I battle it badly, I have to say, I have had to use every effort to subside it.
