It’s okay to admit you’re afraid. We’re all afraid of many things. Others may not be afraid of what you’re afraid of, but they’re probably afraid of something you’re not afraid of.

Bravery is not the ability to not be afraid. Bravery is the ability to do it afraid. Whether you do it afraid or not afraid, the right thing needs to be done. 

Fear holds us back from the life we’re meant to live. Fear prevents us from stepping out of line and starting a new line, or walking to the front of one that needs us as its leader. Fear keeps us afraid of what others think of us.

But fear can be overcome by action. And it can be overcome by education. It will never be completely gone, but it can’t hold you back if you’re determined to not let it.
