Have courage. It doesn’t take perfection or genius to get further in life. It takes guts. We shouldn’t be afraid of failing but afraid of not trying at all. We shouldn’t be afraid of stepping out of our comfort zone but afraid of trapping ourselves in it. We shouldn’t be afraid of our flaws but afraid of not realising their magic. We need to keep trying, keep going, to get further. We won’t ever be perfect. We won’t all be geniuses. But no matter what you think, we can all be brave. And that’s what will get us the furthest.
We are all terrified. Of something. Of everything. We’re terrified of letting people down. We’re terrified of failing. We’re terrified of commitments. We’re terrified of believing in ourselves. We’re terrified of saying how we actually feel. We’re terrified of the world and terrified of ourselves. And so much more in between. It stops us. It chains us. It breaks us. But does it have to? We might not always be able to conquer our fears, but don’t let them conquer you. Act in spite of them. And one day, we won’t be so afraid anymore.
