Irrational Fears

I had an incredible conversation today with a 12 year old about Irrational Fears.  It was an interesting conversation as this 12 year old was able to first, articulate that she had a rational fear, and then second, that she was willing to accept it.

We have as part of our identities – Irrational Fears.  It could be the smallest thing, but irrational.  It doesn’t have to make sense – ergo Irrational, but these fears are components of identity.  They don’t make you, but they can be a part of you.

I’m just impressed by this 12 year old’s ability to accepting their Irrational Fear.  If a 12 year old can do it – so can you.
