The only thing to fear, is fear itself

It occurred to me this mornin. I am no longer afraid of a thing! What a revelation!

After all, I've faced death, live with the possibility of it everyday. Oh, I know we all do. We will all die sometime or another, I believe that until we are faced with the reality of it, we tend to ignore the inevitable..

So, what is there to fear? Not a damned thing, In the long run, does it matter if you have a lot of money, fame, power. Not really.

Does it matter if you have enemies? Again, not really, unless they are pointing a 357 magnum to your head, what possible difference can it make whether people like you or not. What possible difference can it make to anyone what you or I think about another person? Especially here at AdultFriendFinder i see that a lot. One person embarking on a campaign to discredit another with innuendi, gossip, rumor. In the end, those who like you will, and those that don't, don't matter at all.

I am a kind person. I was raised to be so. I believe that we all have moments when we are unfair to one another. I believe that we all have moments when we need to vent or need to beat our breasts. Sometimes thats in chat. Sometimes folks do or say something that is offensive to another, fueled by pain, drink, a moment of meanness, whatever. We are unique as a species, in that we can feign forgiveness, understanding and then crucify behind the scenes. You'll never see me do that. Why, because i'm not afraid of a damned thing. I don't care how i'm perceived by anyone. Why would i be. To quote the late James Morrison, "None of us is gonna get out of here alive" , in the long run, it doesnt matter.

I will never purposely hurt another with words or deeds. I was raised to believe that we treat others as we ourselves wish to be treated. But will i voice my opinion, yes indeedy. Even folks that know me well, folks who are close to me, know i will not tell them what they want to hear but instead what i believe to be true. Right Song, lol!! If i dislike anothers modus apprehendi, i'll say so. But do i try to convince anyone else to feel the same? Nope, everyone is entitled to feel the way they feel..

So, it occurs to me that fear is no longer a word in my vocabulary. Love, understanding, sadness, anger, all there. But fear, whats that?

Right Reality!!! LOL boy oh boy do you ever!!!! Having been on the receiving end of your disagreements with me on a number of occasions, I can give an unqualified YES to your candor!!

If you are strong and push through the pain and the fear, you often find that happiness is waiting for you on the other side.

I just gotta find something to disagree with you about Miss Real. But you speak too much sense and so much truth it's going to take me a while. And you're right, this blogging stuff is FUN and USEFUL!!!

Fear is like the color black, a combo of all colors. Fear is the combination of all emotions tangled in to rat's-nest of a moment. How many people say they saw thier life flash before thier eyes-that takes a lot of emotion to remember that much that fast. My life seems to be a rehash of the movie "final destination" without the actual death part. Fear is healthy, like wine, one glass good, two bottles bad! and your so right. In a hundred years who's really gonna give a shit whether we we're affraid or rich!
