Choosing Love over Fear

Lilly Vercellotti

We are so much more than our trials


Have you been through life-changing experiences? Are you struggling right now with changes in your life journey?


As a woman, I’ve constantly struggled with my physical health throughout my life. Mentally, I am strong. Physically, it has been a challenge. Some say that both aspects are related. If they are, I hope my mental strength can heal my body.


I envision that my health struggles will be temporary and that there are solutions ahead, but I fear this challenge to improve my health will be jeopardized by other aspects and pursuits in life. On the other hand, though, I have worked too much on my mindset to let myself swim in a sea of fear.


How do you move forward in love and trust rather than fear that your problems will overwhelm your strengths?


The truth is that we are all entitled to love, regardless of the state of our health. It is possible that the universe will have your back. Despite any challenges and changes in your life journey, you can handle this unknown with courage,resilience, tender beauty, determination, and a zest for life.


How do you choose love over fear? By recognizing that the pain, challenge, or anything else you are going through right now is just an appendix to all the beautiful things that make you who you are.


To choose love over fear, you must:


1.    Be proactive and surround yourself with loving family and friends.

2.    Trust the universe and do your best with the tools that you have.

3.    Be vulnerable and let others see when you need help. Don’t try to do it all alone.

4.    Choose to believe that the universe has your back and that each problem has a solution.


I don’t recall ever being so vulnerable. I like to be a winner, in charge, and always successful, but it’s hard to be such amidst burning pain that wears out my energy. As soon as the pain is gone, I am ready to jump and go. However, sometimes I fight the pain to the point of exhaustion just to be “successful” – but is that really success in the end?


We must trust the universe to have our back,cradle us through our worst times, and always be there for us.


I choose love over fear and unfairness in life that is beyond my control.


As a childfree by circumstance woman, I never gave up on feeling and sharing the light within me. I will never give up on fighting for life because, like a thirsty traveller in the desert, I know the value of water. I know what it means to live without it, the same way I know what it means to live without life.


So, I ask you to choose love and life, and may the universe return all of its blessings to you!


Take some time to think about your own circumstances. How do you choose love over fear while dealing with the challenges of life?
