What drives you?
What motivates you?
What cripples you?
What destroys you?
What brings out your finest moments?
and just as easily cripples your worst?
Simple, children. Fear.
It's a four-letter word, and one we avoid, very often.
We push ourselves because we fear the consequences. We shy away from potentially grand situations for fear of unwanted results. Bravery is nothing more than fear for someone or something else stronger than fear for your own self. We get up and drudge ourselves to work every day for fear that if we dont, we won't be able to eat the following day. Every one of us has an immeasurable amount of fear in them, whether it's hidden by apathy, sadness, caring, love, hatred, anger, even happiness.
Look at yourself and tell me if this isn't true. Why do you go to school? Why do you work? Why do you stay inside instead of going out on a friday night? Or vice-versa even. Think about it, and if anyone can offer a counterpoint to this, I'll gladly listen.
Now, I fear I must go make sure I can eat.
P.S. I love you.
