OVERCOME THE FEAR OF LEAVING, TO BE ABLE TO BECOME.
I was expecting to be use of departures, but no, that moment remain always fearful and painful. It doesn’t last long but that transition phase always reminds me two things: my bungee jumping, and the day I quite my full time job for freelancing.
I remember that period where I used to feel completely paralysed, scared of absolutely everything, incapable to make any decision big or small. I never used to be like that and I couldn’t understand what was happening to me. The person I was sharing my life with at that time, advised me to do what I was the most scared of. The next day I was booking a bungee jumping for the coming weekend. The night before the jump, I was practicing the swan dive on my bed, crying.
From that jump everything stared to flow. Less than a month later, I quite my job, booked a ticket for NYC where I always dreamt to go and live, hoping that my partner will still be there on my return, three months later.
I really believe in the power of overcoming fear. My biggest fear now, fund a family. I don’t think I will ever overcome that one.
What is your biggest fear?
