3. a feeling of anxiety concerning the outcome of something or the safety and well-being of someone.

. . . again, and again.
Musing on this tonight and anytime I have to make a decision. My philosophy on fear is something I teach in prenatal yoga: you have to go into it, the uncomfortable feeling, but that doesn’t mean it goes away, just that you can do what you need to do anyway.
