It’s real easy to let our past dictate our future. When we have been hurt before, it’s not hard to be fearful about being hurt again. The problem with fear is that it can quickly becoming paralyzing and sabotaging. Being so scared that something can go wrong can stop us from allowing things to go right. I don’t want to be scared anymore. I don’t want fear to close me up and ruin something amazing. I only want to be open and allow things to happen as they should.
