My greatest fear and how I overcame it - Tenzin Jambey
People have so many fears in life, but we can overcome them by facing them and trying out the challenges that create fear. Like everyone, I have so many fears.
I am afraid of darkness, blood, scary things etc. Out of all these, my greatest fear is my future. I feel terrified when I think of my future and what I will become later. As my friends put it, it's very amusing, and I believe the same. This fear dips me into depression when I think of how my future would look and how I would take care of my family.
Specific questions arise in my mind, like would I be able to fulfil my family's wants? I fear feeling ashamed if I fail to meet my family's demands and wishes, as they put in a lot of hard work to send me to school. But I also believe where there is dark, there is light, too; where there is sorrow, there is happiness too!
There are plenty of careers and jobs that I can choose from, and this thought gives me relaxation and relief. This positive thought keeps my fear away and helps me focus on the better side of life!
