It may seem that fear has gotten a bad rap on this blog - overcome your fears, don't feed your fears and all that jazz.
Fear is a gift too (and the title of a book by Gavin de Becker).
When is our fear trying to send an important message for our safety, protection and well-being? And when is it getting in the way of what we really want to do?
All I can offer is that we listen to our inner voice, pay attention to our body clues and reflect - we are the experts of our own messages and we get to choose.
