Relational Fears

  1. 1. Love is full of anxious fears. Ovid, BC 43-18 AD
  2. 2. Are you facing fear today? Perhaps you are afraid of losing your job, of developing cancer or being left by your spouse. At times all of us experience fear. But don't allow fear to keep you from being used by God. He has kept you thus far; trust Him for the rest of the way. Woodrow Kroll
  3. 3. To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead. Bertrand Russell
  4. 4. Love is the total absence of fear. Love asks no questions. Its natural state is one of extension and expansion, not comparison and measurement. Gerald G. Jampolsky
  5. 5. Loving can cost a lot but not loving always costs more, and those who fear to love often find that want of love is an emptiness that robs the joy from life. Merle Shan
  6. 6. There are no guarantees. From the viewpoint of fear, none are strong enough. From the viewpoint of love, none are necessary. Unknown
  7. 7. It’s the heart afraid of breaking That never learns to dance. Bette Midler
  8. 8. At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. Character of Dr. Meredith Grey, “Grey’s Anatomy”
  9. 9. A woman is the only thing I am afraid of that I know will not hurt me. Abraham Lincoln
  10. 10. Don't be afraid of showing affection. Be warm and tender, thoughtful and affectionate. Men are more helped by sympathy than by service. Love is more than money, and a kind word will give more pleasure than a present. Samuel Johnson, 1709-1784
  11. 11. Why are we so full of restraint? Why do we not give in all directions? Is it fear of losing ourselves? Until we do lose ourselves there is no hope of finding ourselves. Henry Miller
