Nobody understands fear like black women.
“Should I stay with him and work it out?”
“How am I going to cope with being a mother to toddlers and running a business?”
“Should I listen to people and have another baby?”
“Will I be seen as aggressive if I share my opinions?”
“Can I make good friends regardless of the stereotype of women hating on one another?”
The difference between failing and winning is in DOING regardless of FEAR.
This February do not give room for fear.
Here are 5 of our favourite quotes on fear:
“Each of us must confront our own fears, must come face to face with them. How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives. To experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it.” – Judy Blume
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
“Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.” – Yoda
“Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.’ – Marie Curie
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” – Frank Herbert in Dune
