Episode 37: The nature of fear with Sas Petherick
On the 20th of December 2018, my heart stopped working. I collapsed on the kitchen floor. 36 hours later, I was having emergency surgery to repair my heart which was completely blocked.
I want to reassure you that as I record this episode almost three months later, I feel very very well.
I know for a lot of us navigating through self-doubt, its the things we are fearful of – the thing we are most afraid of happening – that our self-doubt is trying to protect us from.
We often work really hard to avoid our fears at all costs. But I have learnt that fear is a curious beast when it is the only natural emotion to feel.
I wanted to talk to you about what I learnt in those 36 hours, mostly about the nature of fear. And how I am making sense of it all now.
