We have a lot of fears

We are afraid of being hurt.

We are afraid of being humiliated.

We are afraid of failure and we are afraid of success.

We are afraid of being alone and we are afraid of connection.

We are afraid to listen to what our hearts are telling us.

We are afraid of being unhappy and we are afraid of being too happy (in these dreams, inevitably, we're punished for our joy).

We are afraid of not having our parents' approval and we are afraid of accepting ourselves for who we really are.

We are afraid of bad health and good fortune.

We are afraid of our envy and of having too much.

We are afraid to have hope for things that we might not get.

We are afraid of change and we are afraid of not changing.

We are afraid of something happening to our kids, our jobs.

We are afraid of not having control and afraid of our own power.

We are afraid of how briefly we are alive and how long we will be dead.

We are afraid that after we die, we won't have mattered.

We are afraid of being responsible for our own lives.

Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

We love Him because He first loved us.
