Pushing Through Fears, by Author Oana

Posted at   9:09 AM  |  in   Push Through your Fears

Author Oana
First I would have to explain “my fears” to you. The word “fear” defines an experience that you might or might not relate to. To give you an insight into some of my past fears I would have to travel back in times when I was a child, growing up in a country that resembled rather a huge prison. I spent the first twenty years of my life under the communist dictatorship of Ceausescu. Most of my fears were not only mine. They were shared by millions of people. FEARS were pouring from everywhere. From fear of making jokes or laughing at someone else and being overheard by the secret police, to fear of not having food to eat, to fear of getting sick when there was little or no treatment available, to fear of speaking on the phone because you knew phones were tapped, all these fears and many others shaped our reality.

How do you push through not one but a myriad of fears? Family support and peer solidarity are important but in the end you have to deal with your own fear, no one else can do it for you. In my case, I had a strong sense of humor, a great imagination and as soon as I learned to write I could escape that gray reality. It was learning and writing that kept me positive. It is my personal belief that fears can only be overcome with knowledge. The more you know, the less you are afraid of what life might throw at you.

In 1989, after the fall of the communism, I left my fears behind. I wasn’t afraid to leave my country and pursue education in a different cultural environment. In 2001 I wasn’t afraid to cross the ocean and move to the U.S and expand my horizons. I wasn’t afraid to write and submit my books to publishers, although many people tried to discourage me, telling me that I was competing against native speakers that I was not going to make it and so forth.

I’ve learned a lot from my fears.

My past experiences definitely armed me with resilience and with a great deal of awareness. In plain English, things are not what they appear to be. Some fears are justified, while others are not. They also made me realize what truly matters in life. Take material things; while I love comfort, I also know that properties can be lost, money can vanish, cars can get wrecked, people can deceive you, and therefore my most precious things are not of a material nature. True affection cannot be bought. Real friendship cannot be bought.

Yesterday’s fears have become today’s inspirations.
