For example, this is one of my favorites: "Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem and smarter than you think" ~A.A. Milne (I have this one on my fridge...)
So why is it that sometimes I am unable to face my own fears....? I avoid the unknown and hide in the shadows, trembling..... when facing that which I avoid would probably be less loathsome than my mind can imagine.
I guess this is one more challenge I can work on in the new year........ but I still wonder, why is it easy to help others with their problems when we can't seem to overcome our own?
