Flipping bits, a Human Perspective


Fear of release; A release of fear!

Fear is a debilitating and robust sensation. A feeling of fear can cause one to lose faith in themselves, to give up before realizing success. Inversely some can focus fear and create a galvanizing effect from it, drawing power and inspiration. Fear has been prevalent over the last year, both within myself and shared throughout communities.
