THE ROOT OF FEAR
The root of fear is believing in oneself too much, which makes oneself very vulnerable. It’s as if you have a big cut or burn on your body, something that needs protection. Then beyond that, you are still haunted by your wound, so you protect even your Band-Aid. How do you overcome fear? How do you stop believing in yourself too much? Cheerfulness, or a sense of humor, is the starting point. And then not holding onto oneself too much is the second point.
