“I know how you feel,“ I said. “You run into something you totally don’t get, and it’s scary as hell. But once you learn something about it, it gets easier to handle. Knowledge counters fear. It always has.”
— Jim Butcher

 

Fear
A footstep in the dark
A whisper when you are home alone
A job interview
Meeting a perspective date or friend or employer
Going home with someone
First steps into unknown places
yet fear is a portent
It signals a lesson to come
knowledge to be won
a test of the soul
becoming more whole
yet it also signals a death
an end to the person you were
before the fear was faced
and a new life for the making.
— G A Rosenberg
