Have you struggled from a fear of judgement and condemnation? P.O.D’s Condescending deals with this in real terms.
Have you felt out of place, like you’re without a place to call home? The Contact tells a tale that relates to this feeling in Anthem Of A Refugee.
What about having the worst day at work or at home, and you don’t know how to get through the day so you can have a better tomorrow? MxPx hits the nail on the head in Today Is In My Way.
If you’ve experienced the divorce of a parent, or been through that hell yourself, Blink 182 confronts the reality of this pain in Stay Together For The Kids.
We all have fears. We can either run from them, blame others for the pain they cause, and spend our lives struggling with the negativity associated with them.
Or we can face them, deal with them, and work to overcome them. This is a huge theme with a lot of personal meaning to me. I’ve chosen an alt-rock and punk approach to this subject because it’s visceral and powerful.
Inside this week’s episode I talk briefly about my own struggle with fears. You can get more insight and learn ways I’m using to overcome my own fears in this blog post.
Have fears been a struggle for you? They have been for me. I mention a bit about these fears in this week’s radio show, and talk about my journey in overcoming my biggest fears.
In my upcoming new book Be Solid: How To Go Through Hell & Come Out Whole, I’ll show you an invaliable principle I learned in amateur boxing that I’ve implemented in my personal and professional life to overcome fears, find healing through pain, and overcome loss.
