Let Go of Unreasonable Fears

Sometimes, saying woohoo means working through our fears. Fear can be a good thing. It can signal danger and protect us. Sometimes our fears are bigger than life and bigger than they need to be.

Many of us have panic and anxiety attacks. It's nothing to be embarrassed about. But sometimes we can calm ourselves down by reinforcing a little reality. Maybe we're not really drowning, after all. Maybe all we have to do to save our lives is just sit up.

Explain to yourself that your fears are unrealistic and you don't need to be that afraid, learn to calm yourself down.

God, help me let go of my unreasonable fears, the ones that are preventing me from living my life.
