Fear is Not Real

Happy Halloween! Since Halloween has fallen on a quote of the weekday, it seemed fitting to write about fear.


As a kid, I used to get scared so easily. I enjoyed carving pumpkins & getting sweets but the rest of Halloween wasn’t my cup of tea. I didn’t enjoy scaring people or getting scared myself.

The enemy is fear. We think it’s hate, but it’s fear.

The Gandhi quote above really made me think! It isn’t hate that is the enemy, it’s fear. Fear is debilitating & it can lead to stagnation & hatred. It can make us stay still or move backwards instead of moving forwards.
