When all you feel is fear... (Carroll)

She tapped her chest with her fingertips. "We are born with everything in here; everything we need to be happy and complete. But as soon as things start frightening us, we give away pieces of ourselves to make the fear go away. That is the deal: you want it to stop scaring you, so you give it a part of yourself. You give away your pride, your dignity, or your courage.

"When all you feel is fear, you do not need dignity. So you do not mind giving it away—at that moment. But you will later. You willl need all those pieces later. By then they are gone though; you cannot ask them for help."

Jonathan Carroll, CarrollBlog
