“We fear the thing we want the most.”–Dr. Robert Anthony
“Fear is the prison of the heart.”–Anon
“Of all the passions, fear weakens judgement most.”–Cardinal De Retz
There is no greater self-imposed limitation than fear itself. Fear limits us from truly living and loving fully and freely. No question. I have watched others limit themselves this way time and time again. As I have said earlier elsewhere, we truly do it to ourselves by limiting ourselves from the fulfilled lives and loves we might otherwise have. These would be the most needlessly damaging and inhibiting manacles we put on our own lives. We and no one else. Ironically, this, in an otherwise world of beautiful limitless possibilities.
