17 sayings that help you in overcoming your fears

  1. “Do one thing every day that scares you.”― Eleanor Roosevelt
  2. “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”― Frank Herbert
  3. “Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.”― C. JoyBell C.
  4. “Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.”― Salvador Dalí
  5. “Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”― Jim Morrison
  6. “Don’t give in to your fears. If you do, you won’t be able to talk to your heart.”― Paulo Coelho
  7. “Men go to far greater lengths to avoid what they fear than to obtain what they desire.”― Dan Brown
  8. “I have accepted fear as part of life – specifically the fear of change… I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back….”― Erica Jong
  9. “Do not be afraid; our fate Cannot be taken from us; it is a gift.”― Dante Alighieri
  10. “I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unnerving ease. It begins in your mind, always … so you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the light of words upon it. Because if you don’t, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, perhaps even manage to forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you.”― Yann Martel
  11. “Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”― Marie Curie
  12. “The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.”― Elizabeth Cady Stanton
  13. “Without fear there cannot be courage.”― Christopher Paolini
  14. “Find out what you’re afraid of and go live there.”― Chuck Palahniuk
  15. “Always do what you’re afraid to do.”― E. Lockhart,
  16. “Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.”― Frederick Buechner
  17. “Fear’s useless. Either something bad happens or it doesn’t: If it doesn’t, you’ve wasted time being afraid, and if it does, you’ve wasted time that you could have spent sharpening your weapons.”

    ― Sarah Rees Brennan

    Hey) this is a truly inspiring post! My thoughts on fears are: do not be afraid of them, they are a part of you, as well as your feelings, emotions, passions, loves, talents, hopes, anxieties etc. i believe we have to face them, accept them, walk through our heart and let them be there. As far as I know, people are not able to fight all of their fears, it is impossible. I’m just trying to live my life pushing boundaries just a little. If you’re gonna push hard, you’ll fail. Or maybe that’s just one of my fears…🤔
