Rising Above

My whole life I’ve been telling myself, ‘don’t be afraid’. And it is only now that I’m realizing how stupid that is. Don’t be afraid. Like saying, ‘don’t move out of the way when someone tries to punch you’ or ‘don’t flinch at the heat of fire’ or ‘don’t blink’. Don’t be human. I’m afraid and you’re afraid and we’re all always going to be afraid, because that’s the point. What I should be telling myself is ‘be afraid, but do it anyway’. Live anyway.

    you don't have to be afraid to be human, fear is defense, it's our brains way to protect us, not being afraid is impossible, being in control of your fears no that is a totally different matter. 🙂 be strong,be happy, and keep that smile, your perfect.

    Thanks Rassie. We share the same view though.. That is my point that fear is in fact a part of life. And I will definitely never stop smiling. :))
