After a lot of thinking, I came to realise that we all have fears. Everyone is scared of something.
Everyone fears change. No one wants to wake up and find something or someone missing. Do not resist change. Don’t be scared of your life turning upside down. Who knows? How do you know that the side you’re used to is better than the one to come? You don’t. You’re clueless. And it’s fine. What fun is there in being so sure of everything? Sometimes it could be a surprisingly short walk from nowhere to somewhere. Just remember, every time you were convinced you couldn’t go on, you did. Breathe. Just breathe.
Everyone fears love. Love is giving someone the power to destroy you but trust them not to. It’s a risk you take that the most important person to you could walk away anytime. That this person might not accept you the way you are. You’re scared you might end up with the wrong person. But here’s the trick. Do not give up easily. Even when you tell yourself “I’m done”, give it another try. Choose the one who makes you feel alright. Who makes you feel good about yourself. Who you can be yourself around. Who understands you. Who is caring and thoughtful. Fight the world to be with him. Simply tell the world… I choose him.
Everyone fears rejection. No one loves the word no, especially when you feel that your intentions are good, and that you are wasting them on people who don’t deserve them or appreciate them. Do not stop caring, but if someone decides to push you away, leave. If it was easy on them to reject you, they deserve the same. Do not compromise. If you get rejected, it doesn’t mean you are not good enough. It just means that you were not right for that person or job or whatever it is. Accept this rejection with your head up high, and your tears dry. Smile to the world, until it smiles back at you.
Sometimes you just have to accept the fact that what is done, is done. You have to accept change, love, and rejection in your life. Take many CHANCES. Take many RISKS. And have faith and hope that it will all go your way at the end. At the end of the day, the only person who will take care of yourself is you. Work on YOU. Change yourself. Love yourself. And reject anything that rejects you. Most of all, grow!
