Fear, too, is a story

There’s been a lot of talk about fear lately – of overcoming fear to find your voice, be yourself, etc.

In the end, says novelist Karen Thompson Walker, fear is just another story that propels imagination.

If we approach fear – one of a number of possible stories –  with the “coolness of judgement of a scientist,” Walker says, we can face it with more clarity, as one of many choices, and make better decisions.

Take a listen to Walker’s illuminating perspective.
