Journal Prompt #7 – What’s Holding You Back?

Journal Prompt

What is holding you back from going after what you want in life?

I’ll be the first to admit that I allow fear and anxiety to hold me back. I’ve missed out on opportunities because the voice in my head that is anxiety convinces me not to go through with whatever I’ve been presented with. Anxiety is rooted in fear and it can be crippling. There is so much I want to do and when I envision the woman I want to be, she goes after what she wants, regardless of the voice lingering in the back of her mind. Sometimes I feel like if it wasn’t for my severe anxiety, I’d be further along in life. 

So, what are you allowing to hold you back? What is currently controlling you and stopping you from living the life you imagine? 

Gentle reminder: You are worthy and deserving of going after everything you want in life. You are capable of achieving your goals. 

I love you.

  1. That was good post! I have been thinking this lately myself too. For me it’s also fear (and anxiety) what’s holding me back. I wish I could turn my back on fears but it’s not easy! Still, it would be so sad if life goes on only in fear and it prevent you from pursuing things that will make you happy!
