As kids we were always asked what our fears were. I still remember my family and friends used to teach me how to conquer my fears and overcome it , coming out strong. Well Sonam Kapoor did just the thing with all her Instagram fans, as the inspirational and fearless movie Neerja approaches its release date, Sonam requested her fans and her actor friends to post a 15 second Instagram video of what their fear was and how they overcame it.
Hi everyone I often wonder how fear gave Neerja courage. I would love to hear your stories in 15 second Instagram videos. The most fascinating and touching stories will be posted by me, so that your stories can inspire other people to overcome their fears. You can be also be #Neerja. Use #fearvsneerja when you post!
Check out some of the touching and heart warming responses she received from her fans!
Wake up and face the world! Love you so much for sharing this! #Repost @empathyandhope ・・・ #fearvsneerja Here's my response. My biggest fear in life is being a failure and letting all the people who are pulling my down win. I wake up every morning, face those people and other problems then take a step forward to do all the things I need to do in order to get where I want to be. #faceyourfears @sonamkapoor
Standing up for what's right and yourself gives oneself so much self respect. #Neerja learnt to stand up for herself after being bullied by someone who was supposed to love her and accept her for herself. #Repost @i.kuljit ・・・ @sonamkapoor My fear of being rejected because of my language and being bullied. I remember being called the " that Indie Girl" .Overcame my fear by accepting myself and not letting anyone take advantage of me. Practiced learning to speak English, watching videos, ESL classes. The most courage that's within us is learning to accept ourself. @sonamkapoor #fearvsneerja #myfear
When Sonam asked everyone to share their fears, she created a chain of change. She was given others courage to come out of their shell and out of their comfort zone giving them a chance to voice what they were most afraid of. Fear is always going to with us throughout life either if its small or big, but overcoming that fright will only let you progress forward it life. Find courage within your fear just like Neerja did.
Each video reposted by the gorgeous actress sends a message to us and somewhat motivates us. I hope that with these videos it will make a difference to you and given you the courage to overcome whatever your fear is. Just like the brave Neerja all of us have that courage we just have to find it!
