Fear is the mind-killer. ― Frank Herbert, Dune
It stops you dead in your spot. It hinders you from taking action, from doing what needs to be done. The remedy to fear is trust. Not in some god or religion, but in yourself. Trust in your place among all of us. Trust that you are here and that you will make the right decisions. There is nothing to be afraid of. Everything that exists has merit, so let it be.
Fear’s older cousin is self-doubt. These two present themselves as the deadliest cocktail imaginable. One fuels the other, leaving the host to rot in an endless abyss of stagnation at best and regression at worst. Trust yourself. The mind-killer will have no chance.
