Are the Odds Stacked Against Us?

 

“Much of what life hands us comes without the prelude of fear and worry. Our fears don’t stop death, they stop life. More than we care to admit, more than we even know, our lives are devoted to dealing with fear and its effects. Fear is a shadow that blocks everything: our love, our true feelings, our happiness, our very being….But how much of what we fear is going to happen? The truth is, there really isn’t a big correlation between what we fear and what happens to us…Yet most of us live our lives as if the odds are stacked against us. One of our biggest challenges here is to try to overcome these fears.”

-Elisabeth Kubler-Ross-
