I always found this saying kinda freeing...
You don't have to be fearless, only courageous.
I don't think all fears can be let go of on the front end (human experience/nature/survival instincts)...but can be put down after courageously walking/sitting through them.
@lobster ..... I swear you've been to at least 1000 of the 84,000 doors, haha.
On the same note....... I'm scared/fearful about tomorrow. Been here 20 years in Memphis and have never been to the Civil Rights Museum/Lorraine hotel. The kids were to little to see such graphic images up until now.. They are old enough now. They grew up knowing the what and who and when and of course where bec they are 1/2 Ghanaian, but I'm scared of talking about the why. It will be an emotional day for me.
Three generations of the slave trade....6 of us.... and then me.....I'm White.
3 African men...2 brown children...and me.
I'm fearful inside about my emotions tomorrow.
I'm fearful of the car ride home.
