This is a very powerful chapter personally. A lot of my own life has been living in fear, the fears that have been projected and pushed on myself over many years. Taking on those comments and frustrations from those around me since was Young. The biggest fear has been the fear of criticism.
 
Listening without knowing any truth about what was being said at all. For years my own thoughts or opinions about even being myself was covered over by the opinions and beliefs of those within my own life. Letting those within my own life tell me that I was too slow, that needed to get a job. I was scared of speaking up or being myself, scared of criticism for being who I wanted to be. That dad, a guy who loves his family and can spend quality time with them.
 
For many years I failed to even let myself take care of my own health, the finances, relationships and other areas of my own life as I was too scared to be myself and to stop listening to those whom expected knew more. In the end it came down to being unable to be myself and a fear to be myself for being scared of being hurt either physically or similar again.
 
The scars of being hit in highschool or even rolled up in carpet still run my own life, that for many years it was barely even speaking to anyone unless felt safe with them about what had happened or was going on.
 
At the moment every time I deal with some individuals fear stars running. It has to do with knowing they ate pushing their destructive reality on me.Tthe biggest feas has been criticism, as have been constantly knocked for whom I am. But that is who I am as a person.
 
It makes little difference if You like the underwear I choose or feel comfortable wearing, that I like to sleep as I do, my choice of clothing, my choice of car, how I choose to create an income this is who Ben is and that is my choice. That I choose to work with charities and just give.
 
Fear can stop at the door and walk away I am myself and this is who I am. Those who want me to live in their box are those who live in fear.
 
Thank You so much to my friends for life from mentoring for free who have taught to stop living in fear. To be myself and that’s ok, health challenges, the car that choose and all the rest. A special thank you to my amazing mentors for life Ken Klemm and Linda and Michael Dlouhy for continuing to guide me to remove fear. A huge thank you to my amazing wife for life Jenny for Your own support and love.
