Quote of the day.
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.
Expression is a powerful tool that we all possess and we shouldn’t be afraid to use it. Our expression defines who we are. We should feel comfortable expressing our sadness or anxiety as well as our achievements and happiness. We should be brave enough to express what we believe in and stand by it. We should never forget to express our gratitude and happiness for others. Expression shouldn’t be a weapon muddled with hatred or jealousy. We shouldn’t be using our words to bring others down or place people in a negative light. We shouldn’t be expressing ourselves in a way that invalidates or manipulates others. Our expression illustrates who we are. So find expression in your toolkit and use it with good intentions. We’re trying to fix the world, not break it.
