Listening to one of my favorites from Sade, I contemplated the fear, the character in the song experienced as she waited for her matador to come home, while expecting bad news.

Sade asks a very poignant question in her lyrics – “Can she tame the beast that is her fear?” I thought about this and realized how profound a question it is in our everyday lives. Fear is indeed a beast, and it is destructive and unforgiving. Can we temper our fear even in the face of adversity?


One thought on “Fear

  1. Facing fear in the midst of adversity is the best time to challenge it, it is only then that we may conquer it. There is no fear where there is no adversity, so what other option do we have to overcome it?
