Fear is not the only thing stopping you|| 2.16.16

I am scared. I am scared of mediocrity. I am afraid that I am so smart I am destroying myself. I am afraid that I am thinking so hard so fast that my head will explode. I am afraid of the future. I am afraid of the past. I am afraid of what every moment of life holds. I am not afraid to live. But I am afraid of everything that comes with it. 

This fear keeps me awake. It pours out of my veins into my everyday life. My father told me 

They say you are born free but you are chained everywhere. The things that are good for you are tough. 

Don’t underestimate other people’s efforts. And don’t be selfish. Unless you truly care about the outcome of your life.

Most of us don’t. 

Most of us are just afraid.
