Fear stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. Some fear is healthy. Irrational fear is not healthy. It will gnaw at your insides physically as well as mentally and spiritually. A fear based state of mind holds us back from moving forward. Excessive fear brings on anxiety and panic disorders. The opposite of a fear based mentality is a faith based mentality. Trust God, Spirit, Source of All or your Higher Power -they are all different words for the Great I AM. Surrender your fear thoughts and actions at all times they appear. Discipline your mind to shift from fear based to faith based thoughts.
