Lay down the excuses!
Seek not outside yourself. For it will fail ACIM
What did I learn today? Brutally honest -You can fool some people some time but you can never fool yourself! You can tell yourself almost anything to excuse away your fear. You might actually believe it for a while! But, there will come a time when the excuse will not be strong enough, or big enough to camouflage your fear. Eventually what you tell yourself will begin to sound so weak, so lame, so utterly ridiculous that you will have a hard time convincing yourself or anyone else that it is true. When that time comes, don’t be defensive. Be willing to face the thing you fear!
When you defend yourself for not taking a particular action, you are denying the foundation upon which your peace of mind depends upon – Truth!
When you wait or prepare to the point of avoiding what you really want you say you really want to do, when you know you are afraid but refuse to admit it, there is no way you can have peace of mind, especially when you insist on defending the excuses.
So, you may have a great excuse for remaining in a relationship, work environment, or living arrangement that is not fulfilling, that is not self honouring. Lay down the excuses, feel the fear, face it and move!
