It can be hard, waiting for your life to start.
Does anyone else agree?
I probably regret 80% of my adult life. And I'm not sayin that to be funny because I've done some hilarious and regrettable shit (I have, and have some amusing/gross stories to prove it.)
No, I regret much of my life for NOT doing things that, in retrospect, were utterly terrifying and had the potential to make me incredibly and terrifyingly vulnerable. I was so freaking scared of being alive for so much of my life. .
I was not willing to accept that failing is such an integral part of succeeding, so I chose neither. As a result, I was nearly comatose for a fair few years. And knowing the very essence of human nature; I am not alone in these feelings. .
I think we all need to remember that life is never about being comfortable. If it were, you might as well climb into a coffin now.
You need to DO things, you need to challenge yourself and want to LIVE life in order for it to feel worthwhile for you, even if those things are terribly scary and challenge who you thought you were. .
However, I know the anxiety of what you should be is no easy mountain to climb. It can seem insurmountable most of the time. Taking even one step seems painful....
But the fear of "what if I fail, what if I am crushed" will never leave, you just need to become acquainted with your vulnerability and fear, for it is a beautiful thing. Vulnerability can concour all. .
