Reject fear: It's how they control you

I have written that true freedom only comes with a freedom from fear. That's not to pretend you're not scared - just that you should feel the fear and let him ride with you, like an uninvited friend on a road trip.

I came back to me when a very nice friend - an aspiring academic - posted the five nightmare scenarios that haunt academics. In my thoughts about rejecting fear, I came back to a Seinfeld episode where Elaine said that "One day something terrible is gonna happen to you", Jerry's response is perfect - "Nah, I'll be just fine" and carries on the conversation without a thought,

Reject fear - it's your freedom you're fighting for.
