Fear is like waves on the ocean that come in ebbs and flows. This is what I have been experiencing after a recent argument with my Twin Flame. His behaviors triggered my past injury that felt so painful that I reacted in a way I have not reacted in over 15 years. I thought that injury was healed, but I am realizing that I still am emotionally wounded.
This emotional wound causes me to behave with distrust, jealousy, and fear of betrayal. I also realized and acknowledge that this wound is within me. I believe that my twin and I share similar emotional wounds causing us to trigger each other, and share the same fear of being injured again. I have been observing my thoughts and feelings as these waves of fear hit me.
Last night, I admitted to my Twin Flame my deepest fear of no longer being young and pretty as I age. My fear is that someday in the near future, he will trade me in for a newer and younger woman. Just saying these words out loud made my fears dissipate. It connected me deeply with my Twin to share such vulnerability and deep seeded fear of unworthiness and lack.
Fear is the voice that prevents us from being injured again, but it also is the voice that prevents us from moving forward in our lives. It keeps us stuck in the same emotionally wounded place as when we first were wounded by someone we love. Facing our fears is the first step to dissipating this fear, and taking away its power to rule our lives. May you overcome your deepest fears.
