As Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 bellowed those now-famous words, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself”; he couldn’t have possibly imagined the unjustified terror that paralyzes Americans more today than ever before. We lock our doors, say our prayers, and still can’t get any sleep. For the first time in history, fear is tearing our society apart. Until we find a way to resist and deal with the fear, we will live at the mercy of these fearful emotions and be party to the personal, cultural, and political consequences. However, Fear is just a product of your thoughts. The decisions you make today will shape what will become of you tomorrow. Read the rest of these sage quotes and tips as to how to curtail most of your fears and even perhaps feel safe again. You will find that if you step back and look, you will find out that it is actually funny all this misery we create in our lives and do to ourselves. Perhaps the antidote to fear is being afraid of so many things (that are never going to happen) that you finally see the humor in it all. I did. I think I can bottle this…hope you will too.
