Soms kunnen de teksten van anderen je gevoelens beter onder woorden brengen dan dat je dat zelf kunt. Sinds de middelbare school verzamel ik daarom al allerlei stukjes tekst, zoals gedichten en quotes.
Vandaag deel ik de (naar mijn idee) mooiste quotes over angst. Angst kan namelijk verlammend werken, maar het kan je ook juist stimuleren om de regie te nemen over je leven.
Je mindset kan er voor zorgen dat je angst gebruikt als kracht in plaats van als een belemmering. Hopelijk kunnen de onderstaande quotes over angst je daarbij inspireren!

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love.
When we are afraid, we pull back from life.
When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.
We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections.
If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create.
Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
