Fear is a stumbling block, but not a stopper

I read all the memes on Facebook, and Twitter and Instagram and Pinterest, but I just have to disagree with so many premises: You CAN dream when your head is full of fears. I have done it for a lifetime. You CAN love others when you don’t yet fully love yourself. You CAN love even when fear is present. You CAN do ANYTHING, even as you struggle with fear and worry. Telling people they must beat their fears before they can do anything else that matters just further shackles those for whom fear may well be a lifetime presence. I CAN, and WILL, love, dream, live and maybe even succeed even if I never manage to fight back all the fears that make every step of that a struggle.
