Sadie herself struggles with fear. It got so bad at times, that she felt crippled by it. In fact, she almost turned down the offer to go on Dancing With The Stars because of her fear.

“I’ve had a lot of those fear-driven moments because for a long time, I just was totally enslaved to fear,” she said. “It was almost like fear would answer the question if I were going to do something or not or if I was going to take an opportunity.”

In a recent Instagram post, she said her fans kept messaging her, saying things like…

  • “I would love to wear that… but I would be too scared!”
  • “I would love to post that…. but I would be too scared!!”
  • “I wish I could pull that off… but I’m too scared to try”

“WHAT ARE WE SCARED OF?!?” she wrote. “I believe we are scared of PEOPLE. The essence of the fear is not from clothes, the post, or even something pulling a pose off. We are scared of people’s view of us and the opinion or comment that follows that view.”

She told the story of how she went into Duck And Dressing, started by her sister, Rebecca, her mom, Korie. Rebecca asked her to try on a pair of jeans because everyone at the store was scared to.

“The truth is boys may not like these jeans,” Sadie said. “They aren’t tight and don’t fit in all the right places, but I genuinely loved them. They are comfy and I was confident in how I felt as I’m sure y’all would be too.”

She then pointed out the overall message she was trying to convey to her Instagram followers.

“It ultimately comes down to what level of importance we are putting on these things and trying to portray,” she wrote. “There are a lot of scary things in the world, but clothes should not be one of them or people’s comments.”

She said the key to killing fear is “confidence in the things bigger than yourself.”

message time -> so many people lately have said to me "I would love to wear that… but I would be too scared!" "I would love to post that…. but I would be too scared!!" "I wish I could pull that off… but I'm too scared to try" WHAT ARE WE SCARED OF?!? I believe we are scared of PEOPLE. The essence of the fear is not from clothes, the post, or even something pulling a pose off. We are scared of people's view of us and the opinion or comment that follows that view. When I walked in @duckanddressing today Rebecca said "sadie could you please put these jeans on everyone's scared to wear them, so maybe if they see you they will" the truth is boys may not like these jeans. They aren't tight and don't fit in all the right places, but I genuinely loved them. They are comfy and I was confident in how I felt as I'm sure y'all would be too ❤️ it ultimately comes down to what level of importance we are putting on these things and trying to portray. There are a lot of scary things in the world, but clothes should not be one of them or people's comments. Do y'all see the negative comments on my page?!? Yeah I take some heat at times, but i can not let that shape my view of what I like, who I am, or what I do. Confidence in the things bigger than yourself will cancel out fear.
