“You are afraid to die, and you’re afraid to live. What a way to exist.” – Neale Donald Walsch
Afraid. To live. To die. To get hurt. To hurt others. Afraid. Of failure. Of success. Of getting stuck somewhere in between. Afraid of doing nothing at all, afraid of overdoing it. Afraid of yourself, afraid of others. Rationalizing. Being practical. Over-intellectualizing. Holding back. Waiting for the right moment and the right place.
Finding excuses. Blaming yourself. Blaming others. Telling yourself that you’ve got enough time.
You are afraid. And most times you don’t even realize it. And everyone else is just as afraid as you are. A bit ironic, but it’s true.
Keep that in mind. No one is fearless, no one is perfect, and no one is better.
We just are. You just are.
But it would be a damn shame if you didn’t do what you’ve always wanted to do simply because you’re afraid.
