When Does Fear Help, or Harm?

by | Feb 12, 2024 | Feelings, Healing Trauma, Personal Growth

Have you ever been a passenger when someone else is driving, and you find yourself gripping the seat in fear?

Or, maybe you’ve been censoring yourself in a meeting, inhibited by what you imagine others’ judgments might be?

Sometimes our fears are a form of wisdom, directing our attention to our safety and well-being. Other times, our fears are an invitation into courageous action and risk-taking.  

On this week’s podcast, we explore the role of fear in our lives: When does fear keep you alive, and when does fear keep you from living?
