What Are We Scared Of?

Death. You can’t avoid it.

We’re all going to die one day, it’s inevitable… but you don’t know when it’s going to happen.

You could die tomorrow in a tragic car accident, you could die from a disease in 6 years, you could die of old age, you simply do not know.

Why don’t we start living like we could die tomorrow?

Why don’t we start taking more chances?

Why don’t we tell the person we love that we love them?

Why don’t we travel the world?

Why don’t we say what’s on our mind?

Why don’t we take a risk?

Why don’t we reconnect with someone we lost touch with?

Why don’t we make amends with someone we had a falling out with?

Why don’t we do something that scares us?

Why don’t we start actually living, rather than avoiding things that scare us?

Recently I asked myself, “what am I scared of?” 

I’m scared that I may not say the right thing, or do the right thing.

I’m scared that I may be too clingy sometimes.

I’m scared that I wear my heart on my sleeve too much, and I may get hurt because of it.

I’m scared of the future.

I’m scared of being alone.

I’m scared of losing touch with people who matter to me.

I’m scared someone may not like me for me.

I’m scared that I may not accomplish enough.

I’m scared that I’m not enough.

Instead of sitting here being scared… I am going to start living my life and taking chances.

I am going to start saying how I feel.

I’m going to wear my heart on my sleeve, and give everything my all.

I’m going to be excited for what the future can bring.

I am going to embrace being alone, and grow everyday as an individual.

I’m going to stay in touch with people.

I’m going to be myself, and not get upset if someone doesn’t like me.

I am going to accomplish as much as I can, and accept that some days may not be as good as others.

I am going to believe in myself.
