Which is worse . . . ?
Conflict or not voicing disagreement?
Failure or not trying anything new?
Speaking up and not being heard or keeping silent for fear of upsetting the apple cart?
Being compassionate and perceived as weak or not being compassionate and becoming hard?
Doing or being paralyzed by fear?
Dealing with feelings or being numb?
Sometimes in trying to prevent something we perceive as bad, we end up with a worse deal!
Remember. . .
Don't let fears and suppositions prevent you from trying the possible. You can choose to take action and correct course if needed.
