Six Word Saturday
Nothing to fear but fear itself.

I was talking with an long term friend yesterday and the friend, as usual (unfortunately) was doing her usual litany about fear.
She has bundled her children up in long sleeves and big hats since they were little because she is afraid of skin cancer.
She proselytizes about the danger of vaccines because she is worried about vaccines causing autism.
She is constantly saying she is afraid of this or that - going into the city, driving, her children being out, her children being home, getting old, being alone, staying with the man who loved her - I have no idea how she functions.
And I wonder how often I let fear limit my own life - that I don't do something because I am afraid I will look stupid or awkward or not do it well.......
