Let go of fear

I was afraid of exposing myself to strangers, afraid of being judged. When I finally realized that I was afraid to face the questions, judgments, and rejection of my own making, that I expect nothing less, I had to surrender.

I had to admit I was afraid. I had to allow the fear to work through my brain. I had to feel the rejection, and from that position I had to trust that whatever happened would be for the best. And that's how I learned to let go of caring about what others thought.
