Facing Fear One Day At A Time

on 02/08/2013

Story by Darick Reed

Hi. My name is Darick Reed. I am a 36 year old recovering alcoholic and drug addict. I have been homeless and listed as a missing person. I struggle with anxiety and depression. I have failed in business, and I am severely in debt. I have let down countless friends and family members. I turned my back on my own talents and dreams. I nearly gave up on myself, because I believed I was a failure. So I hid from everything. For ten years.

Afraid.

It took enough pain and despair for me to figure it out. It was FEAR. I was afraid of everything; success, relationships, being alone, dealing with my emotions, criticism, failure…

Today I accept full responsibility for my past, and it is time for fear to understand that I am back in charge. My future has been on hold for way too long. I am going to turn my life around, and it all begins RIGHT NOW.

I am declaring A WAR ON FEAR. I am going to do what I want to do. Starting a blog is one. Helping people is another… I will find a way.

How about you? Do you have your own argument with fear?

Are you really doing the things you’re passionate about, or are you hiding like I was?

How about we gang up on fear together and take over the world.

Because If I can do it, so can you.

The Me Against Fear Revolution begins now.

So put your boots on, fear soldier. I am glad you are here.
