What we hold inside of ourselves is a lens through which we see the world. Every bias, every fear & every resentment becomes a focal point for our minds, and we interpret data from within that mental landscape.
.....This is the way of things, and we cannot escape ourselves. We can either choose to grow past our fears and limitations or we can succumb to them.
Which are you going to choose? To fight fear, or to fight back your happiness OUT of fear?
Food for thought.
