A few years ago when I was 15 I was entering my freshman year. It was a time for me to start the becoming the person I am now. With that being said I wanted some sort of quote or mantra To guide throughout the four years, something To keep myself in check. So I ended up finding a quote that made me change every aspect of my life. Which turned out to be great. If have me so much guts and nerve. The quote is “Fearless isn’t being 100% unafraid it’s being terrified and jumping anyways.” I guess I’d like to clarify what fearless means to me. So here it goes.
To me, FEARLESS is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, FEARLESS is having fears. FEARLESS is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. FEARLESS is falling madly in love again, even though you’ve been hurt before. FEARLESS is walking into your freshmen year of high school at fifteen. FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again… even though every time you’ve tried before, you’ve lost. It’s FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change. FEARLESS is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can’t breathe without them. I think it’s FEARLESS to tell someone you love them, knowing they don’t love you back. And when someone apologizes to you enough times for things they’ll never stop doing, I think it’s FEARLESS to stop believing them. Fearless is being able to do something that scares you regardless of the outcome. It’s FEARLESS to say you’re not sorry, and walk away. I think loving someone despite what people think is FEARLESS. I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is FEARLESS. Letting go is FEARLESS. Then, moving on and being alright…That’s FEARLESS too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charming and happily ever after. Because I think love is FEARLESS.”
