Pain is Fear Leaving the Body.

You’ve probably seen this original quote all over Pinterest, fitness websites, health websites and other fitness blogs, but I decided yesterday that the quote is wrong. Pain is not weakness leaving the body — it’s fear.

The reason I say this is because I had a weird revelation while running yesterday and that is – I don’t feel as afraid. 

I feel like fitness is such a liberating thing. We fight it as much as we might because it’s much easier to hide ourselves away rather than face the world and say “This is who I am…and proud of it” because doing that might mean judgment, rejection and yes, failure.

But I also realized another really epic thing and that is what we’re capable of when we stop being afraid, anxious and just go for what we want – it’s SO liberating!

I realize now that no matter what, I’d rather face my failures and get back up, face myself head on so I can improve and succeed in the future than stay forever on the ground because trying and failing is better than doing nothing at all and feeling constant anxiety, fear and despair.

So with each stride toward your goals, whether fitness related or not, move towards your better future with the confidence that you’re leaving fear behind you without a backwards glance.
