Let’s face it, sometimes love can be scary. For a lot of us it is the unknown that makes us fearful. We worry about all of the things that could happen. What if our heart gets broken, what if things don’t work out, what if…? But some things are worth fighting to ensure that your fear does not cripple you. When it feels right, most often we find the courage.
“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.” ~Ambrose Redmoon
In this case, love, or at the very least a chance at it, is more important than fear. A chance at happily ever after supersedes the reservations one might have. Particularly when you realize that by not letting go of fear and giving love a try, you have much more to lose by not taking a chance.
As we venture through a season where fright is at the forefront, let’s take a moment to give thought to how scary love can be. Take a look at 10 quotes on love and fear:
We aren’t born with fear. We learn it.
The scariest lies in the between.
Denying love results in the greatest loss.
But worth the risk.
A chance to decide
There is always an opportunity to decide — love or fear?
A life without love is a cost too great.
“Perfect love” takes the fear away.
A mask remover
Able to give way to transparency.
Happily ever after
Pull back vs. remaining open.
Yet as scary as love is, when it’s right what’s even scarier is a life without it.
