FEAR

Fear isn't just something that messes with our heads; it's actually wired into our biology for a good reason. It's like an internal alarm system, designed to keep us safe from real danger. Back in the old days, fear was what made our ancestors run from wild animals or fight to protect their families. It's all about survival.

 

Even though we're not running from wild animals anymore, our bodies still react in the same way. When we're scared, our hearts beat faster, our muscles tense up, and our brains get ready for action – this is the fight or flight response. It can be a bit much when the scariest thing we're facing is speaking up in a meeting or going on a first date, but that's how we're built.

 

Currently, fear still manifest itself constantly making our mind and body react as if we were truly facing an imminent danger that treats our survival

 

Fear is like a shadow that follows us around, popping up when we least expect it. It's that knot in your stomach before a big presentation at work, or the racing heart when you're about to have a tough conversation with a loved one. We all feel fear, but as women, sometimes it feels like we've got an extra dose of it.

 

In our personal lives, fear can show up as worry about our kids or our relationships. Will they be okay? Are we doing enough? At work, it might be the fear of not being taken seriously, or the nagging thought that we might fail and let everyone down. And then there's the day-to-day stuff, like walking to our car alone at night or standing up for ourselves when we're not treated right.

 

But here's the thing: we can stand up to fear, and when we do, we're unstoppable. Here's how:

 

1. Talk about your fears with someone you trust. Sometimes just saying it out loud makes it less scary.


2. Learn about what scares you. If you're worried about a work project, do your research. Knowledge is like turning on a light in a dark room.


3. Find your squad. We're stronger together, so lean on friends, family, or coworkers when you're feeling scared.


4. Take baby steps. Want to ask for a raise? Practice what you want to say out loud first. Every little step counts.


5. Celebrate your wins. Every time you face a fear, no matter how small, give yourself some credit.

 

When we push past our fears, we find out what we're really made of. It's not just about getting through the day without falling apart; it's about realizing we're capable of so much more. So let's lace up our boots, look fear in the eye, and show it who's boss – because on the other side of fear is a life full of chances worth taking.
