Cocoon Of Fear

Updated: Jan 3, 2020


So often we wrap ourselves up in a cocoon of fear, so much isolating ourselves from the world that we forget what living even is.

Slowly chipping away at your very character, convincing yourself that things are just too risky or the timing isn’t quite right.

You avoid life by procrastinating,

Keeping yourself busy and distracted

Giving your self a million reasons why you shouldn’t do something, and not a single reason why we should.

Before you know it, you’ve comprised so much away that you don’t even recognise yourself anymore.

So fixated on making a living that you’ve forgotten to actually make a life.

So obsessed with keeping yourself alive, that life itself has simply passed you by.

The antidote to fear is not the absence of fear, but rather courage.

The way fear is conquered is by slowly exposing yourself to the things you fear most.

Whether it’s a fear of shame,

A fear of failure
