Do questions like these ever cross your mind? Does he/she really love me? Am I good enough? Am I loveable? Am I worth it? DOUBT! Or do questions like these ever cross your mind? What if they say no?

Doubt and fear can keep us from our mission.
See if you can catch the next time a doubt-question or a fear-question runs through your head. Sometimes they are so automatic that we don’t catch them and–almost on autopilot–we pull away and move back from living. And then what can you do about it?
