The idea for this post came to me when I was on a run. Perhaps one of the most complex human emotions and that is fear. Fear that we are not good enough. The fear of failure. As human beings sometimes we fail to do what we want because of the fear of what might happen.
I see it all the time, when people are stuck in a job that they don’t want to do because they are fearful of the unknown. See when you can’t always control what is going to happen, because what you are doing perhaps isn’t the safe move and that always scares us. So I feel as if a lot of people spend their lives wondering what could have been.
This year I decided to take a few years off uni, because I absolutely hated it. I hated it the entire first year, the only thing that kept pushing me through finishing the first year of uni, was fear. I was fearful and afraid of what people would think, because quite frankly every time I bought it up, someone always had to mention that it would be such a mistake for me to leave. Obviously, these individuals have the best intentions for me and in no way are they trying to make my life miserable. But my point here is everyone is so afraid of the unknown even if it does not directly affect them.
I can’t even imagine going through life, doing everything because you were too afraid to try something. I am absolutely at times terrified to do a blog post, because there are obviously so many thoughts running through my mind. Like what if everyone just judges what I write? Even though, a lot of people won’t read this I do bare all my thoughts to you guys. This is me at my most vulnerable. Because as much as it scares me this is also my safe space. A place for me to truly express myself.
Imagine. If everyone had a safe space that they could go and be themselves, I do believe this world would be an extremely different place. Because in life you sometimes just have to follow your heart and do what absolutely scares you to death and, what makes your heart pound at the thought of it. Because at the end of the day that is how we grow as individuals and people. No one ever changed their life or created the life they wanted for themselves by doing what made them feel safe. Are you in a relationship because you are comfortable and not because you truly love them with all your soul and heart? Honey, I know it is scary but maybe it might be time to make that first step because you are way too awesome to be half loved because you are afraid of a greater love.
Just because you don’t have a lot of money it doesn’t mean you can’t travel and get out there in the world. Because at the end of the day neither do i, but if you truly believe in something with all your heart and soul and you feel it with your entire body, then go the bloody hell for it. Don’t stop and don’t let anybody stop you, especially don’t let that little fearful voice stop you. I am going to keep pouring my heart into these blog posts because well, I love it and being afraid just isn’t a good enough excuse to stop doing it.
Here’s to never letting fear get in the way and following what your heart desires. You deserve it.
