"The Courage to Be Yourself"
- By Sue Patton Thoele
"The good news about learned fear is that it can
matter what our past, we can experience
the deep truth that life and relationships need not be
fear-filled. We do not consist of our fear; we merely
Thus we can learn step by step to see fear not as
something that we are but something that we have.
For example, you may have at times told yourself, I'm
such a coward! Not true! Never accept a definition
of yourself that identifies you as your fear.

Think of some sentences that appeal to you as an
accurate definition of who you are. For example:
"I have a fear of rejection. But I am not that fear.
I am a beautiful, unique soul created in God's image.
I am O.K. exactly as I am."
