Fear is damaging. It has the ability to take over and stop you in your tracks. It changes as we get older, we outgrow some things that frighten us like monsters under our bed and get scared by new sites like speaking in public or starting a new job. No matter where you are in your life, no one is immune to feeling afraid sometimes.
I have been a fearful person for more days than I can count. I can’t even count the number of times I know it held me back. I have more regrets about things I didn’t do because I was afraid then things I did and shouldn’t have.
When I was pregnant with my daughter, I was truly scared and the closer I was to my due date the more scared I would be. One of the ways I got through this was by creating flashcards with quotes about strength and overcoming fear. This helped me calm my nerves and enabled me to feel prepared as my due date approached.
Learning from others that came before us and gleaning their wisdom is a great way for me to stay motivated and strong. I truly believe in the power of quotes and how they can truly help you through a trying time in your life. Everyone gets scared, we all feel it, but sometimes it’s nice to know you aren’t alone and you will get through it.
So I have rounded up some amazing quotes to give you strength and courage in your time of need! Be strong in your life. Hold yourself accountable in your strength and throw fear out the window!
