“In the end, we regret the chances we didn’t take.”
I can relate to this quote on so many levels simply because I have always hesitated to do something and then later on wish I did it. Because I wanted to experience what it was like. Not to remember that moment as a time I was being a coward and not going for what I want because I was to scared to do it.
In the long run, fear is nothing. Fear will literally get you nowhere. If you are scared of dogs for example, would being cooped up in your house to prevent you from seeing dogs really be worth it. I mean, dogs are just living things, just like you. Most dogs don’t mean any harm, and if you are really going to stop yourself from doing something because of something else, you need to learn a few things.
It won’t help you to put your life on hold because someone or something else. It’ll be like being put in a blank, empty room with a door wide open for you to leave, yet you stay because you are scared of whats on the outside.
F-E-A-R. What does that spell? Fear. You don’t want to regret things because of fear, you want to regret doing bad things. Not regretting things that you should’ve done but didn’t do.
It’s as simple as that. And if that isn’t simple, let me ask you a few questions…
Do you want to have regrets in the future?
Don’t you want to live your life by your own choices?
Is being scared of something really going to stop you from doing what you want?
If your answer for all of those is NO, then I assume you don’t want to have anybody else but you control your life. You do you! That is how you should be, not being control by fear, or by hesitation.
It’s just easier that way.
Plus, in the future, you will be happier to know you took risks and you took chances, not that you sat back and was scared to do anything.
