The fear of stepping away….

Why is it that we are so afraid to step out of a situation? What is it that we think we will be missing if we step away and leave whatever our present situation is behind? This is a question that I often ask myself.

You will see all the signs that give you all the information that you need, yet you will stick around, lurking around the corner just to see what happens next. Why???????

Have you ever had a talk with yourself and you know what the right move is, but you talk yourself out of making that move because you are scared of the what if’s??????? Or you find yourself in a relationship that was encouraged by the other party but 2.5 months down the line their energy changes and they act like you infiltrated their life and you don’t want to look like a quitter so you wait for the other party to end things. The question is why didn’t you walk away? Don’t get me wrong. We all know that we possess all the obvious things…. Beauty, brains, drive, ambition, so on and so forth, but that doubt that you are missing something to fit into that persons world or in that situation or career choice is devastating. The disappointment that is felt by being afraid to move onward and upward can be paralyzing.

Today, I listened to an uplifting sermon when I got to work, and cried my eyes out. That sermon was meant for me to hear because I am at a crossroads in my life and I need to start moving forward. Then I had a nice long talk with a good friend. I had to be reminded that I don’t need to fit into anyone’s box because I am a girl with many curves and edges. There is a plan for me, created by God and it is up to me to accept it to be able to see it. Let me say that again. You need to accept God’s plan in order to see your purpose.

I had to really look into myself and ask the hard questions. I often feel that maybe people don’t step out of their comfort zone due to a lack of confidence. Or more personally for me, having that feeling of not being enough, so until I feel that I am enough, I stay where I am. This is a sickening feeling of being stuck. Knowing that you are destined for more, deserve more, can be more if you just step forward, but that fear of no longer being comfortable holds you back. Whether it is a job, a relationship, or just an action, we must be able to have the courage to move forward.

So let me be the first to say that I am wiping away the tears and getting my head together. Leaving all and any baggage behind me. Taking steps and following what my angel is encouraging me to do, (thank you for the good word, (@brian_keith_harris.) I have all of the equipment, the know how and the credentials…all I have to do now is believe in ME!!!!, and all of you should self evaluate and do the same.
