At some point in your life — probably when you were unhappy — you have found something which you suddenly realized was everything you had been looking for.
It might be the most beautiful place in the world to live. It might be the perfect career which you didn’t know even existed. It might be the perfect romantic partner. But whatever it is, something changes when you discover this thing.
Your heart sings. You’re willing to do whatever is necessary to make this thing a part of your life. Your new realization or understanding suddenly changes everything for you. The future looks different. This is what you’ve always wanted, even before you knew it existed.
But then a moment of doubt creeps into your mind. Fear starts whispering to your heart. You suddenly realize the price you might have to pay to have what you want. The fear paralyzes you.
