i think the only difference is after the acknowledgement of: it’s scary.
‘it’s scary; i’m afraid,’
‘it’s scary; i’m not afraid.’
face fear; don’t make up an excuse not to – otherwise, the one becomes a lie perpetuated and never overcome; the other one takes you forward, regardless of outcome.
things are always going to come up at times to scare us; lots of stuff is scary – that’s an inevitable fact; don’t be afraid. don’t be stuck.
