Trust30: Prompt #6


The Prompt:

The Response:

Fear. That one's a doozy. I've lived a great deal of my life in fear - fear of failing, fear of losing the people I care about, fear of disappointing my family, fear of getting hurt, etc etc. I'm tired of living my life in fear.

If nothing else, the past 21 years have shown me that I can do anything I set my mind to, so why do I continue to let my fears and insecurities get in the way of doing anything and everything that comes into my little head? I've surrounded myself with good people - people that care about me, love me, give me great advice, but most importantly, people that will always be there for me and help me pick up the pieces of my life if (and when) I ever fail.

If I continue to allow my fear to defeat me, I will do the one thing I absolutely said I would never do - I will always look back and say "What if I had actually gathered up my metaphorical balls and gone for it?" I can't stand the idea of living a life of regrets and 'what-ifs' ... it's time to put my fear behind me and move forward. The stumbles will totally be worth it.
