And, you can still keep an open mind. I see in many places that there is an attack on fear. People fear fear. While fear can lead to poor decisions and bad calculations, it can also bring necessary caution.
We live during very challenging times. If adaptation is hard for you, that is okay. Businesses and institutions are pushing to survive. We are all trying to survive, to feed our families, to protect our families. We are all trying to make “Hope” even when we don’t feel it ourselves. This if how we survive when we don’t know when the relief will come, or how.
It’s okay to be afraid. Being aware of your vulnerability doesn’t make you a coward; it doesn’t make you weak; and it doesn’t make you a bad person if you find it hard to be positive. We are living during difficult times. Difficulty requires love and compassion. It requires patience, and often we may not have any extra.
These times are transforming us in ways we don’t even know. As a planet we are facing challenges we have not experienced for a long time. It’s okay to be afraid, to not know, to not be turning every moment into its silver lining.
It’s okay to be afraid.

Thanks for putting this out there Ka. I sometimes feel guilty when I feel negative or give into fear. Self-love leads to compassion. ❤
I agree, Linda. Self love helps us accept ourselves as we are, without judgement, without a label, without asking us to change. It’s a prerequisite. Much love to you…. 💗
and back to you ❤
Very compassionate reminders. Thank you Ka. Self-acceptance is key, especially now with all the challenges. Hugs…

Great post! Thank you for this wise reassurance. I believe that real courage is feeling afraid, but still putting one foot in front of the other. Still, fear can keep us safe. Sometimes we just need to take a step back and nurture ourselves.
Thank you, and you’re welcome! I think it’s the post I needed to read 🙂. Every part of the process is valuable. I think we try to skip steps, and that’s where we get stuck. Even stepping back, in this way, to nurture, is moving forward. Thank you for adding your assessments.
Even stepping back to nurture is moving forward. Good to remember!
“Difficulty requires love and compassion.”
A gentle post, Ka. It’s such a strange time, full of uncertainty, which seems harder to manage than those tough times where we know the range of endings. The future feels up in the air. But love and compassion is always helpful and never wasted. Your post gave me a smile. 🙂
Thank you, Diana. Gentleness is so rare to find these days. It’s worth spreading. Thank you for reading my post. I’m glad it gave you a smile!
