8 The Message Monthly -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana May -- On The Record -- Lay down your burdens of fear LITrLE BIRD I look up to the little bird/That flies across the sky/He sings the clearest melody/It makes me want to cry/It makes me want to sit right down/And cry, cry, cry/l look along the city streets/So dark with raging fear/And I wish that I could be that bird/And fly away from here/l wish I had the wings/To fly away from here. (REFRAIN) But Mama, I feel so alone/Mama, where do I go Mama, what do I know/Mama will it be so?/They always say that you knew best/But this little bird's fallen/Out of that nest/Now I got a feeling/That I might have been lefl/I just got to put/These wings to test. For I'm just a gentle soul/Who's weighted, weighted to the ground/Give me the strength to carry on/rill I can lay my burden down/Give me the strength/To lay this burden down. (REPEAT REFRAIN TWICE} Written and Sung by Annie Lennox Copyright (c) 1992 by BMG Records Is something holding you back in life? Do you ever feel that you are not becoming who you By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST i want to be? If so, then you can identify with the person in Annie Lennox's latest release, "Little Bird." This person realizes that "I just got to put these wings to test." She chooses to move be- yond her dissatisfaction about her life. She knows she is a "gentle soul who's weighted, weighted to the ground." Although she doesn't name this weight, some burden keeps her life from really taking off. Yet, she prays, "Give me the strength to lay this burden down." A common burden for many of us is fear. We may have a dream or goal we want to reach. However, fear's voice within us can be so strong. Fear can think of hundreds of ways we might fail. It tells us that we will look foolish if we try and do not succeed. So how do we lay down this burden of fear? I've gleaned some answers to this question by watching teens I work with in my counseling practice. Here are a few suggestions: 1. State right up front that you are afraid. Hidden fear just gets a stronger hold on us. Talk about your fear to someone whom you trust, someone who will be your ally as you face the way fear would control your life. 2. Formulate a plan. Fear tries to convince us that what we want to achieve is "im Fear wants us to feel overwhelmed and give t But when we break a goal down into manageable steps, our successes build confi- -: dence. When we see that we are making toward the goal, we are less likely to believe what fear tells us. 3. Reach out for help. Determine what of assistance you need. Then keep until you find the right person who you to stick to your plan. For example, to college is your goal, but the financial loan forms don't make sense to you, keep someone who understands these forms process of attaining the needed money. 4. See disappointment and apparent for what they really are -- indicators that plan needs refining, not permanent to success. When feeling discouraged, ask for guidance. With God's help, we can turn a setback into feedback on how to try anew, this time with added knowledge about doesn't work. Such information makes the way to success one step clearer. :: Your life is tremendously significant. Yo dreams and goals can be realized. Like the "little bird," take off to fly.
