I tend to worry about things I shouldn’t be worried about. Like what will happen a year from now? Will I be successful by then? I really hope so. Will I get to have my dream job? What if I disappoint my family? I’m afraid of failing. I’m afraid of not being enough. Not being good enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough. I act like I don’t care what people think and say about me, but I do.
And then I realized that I shouldn’t be worried of things I really cannot control. Some things just don’t go according to plan. If I fail at something, maybe that’s just wasn’t meant for me. Maybe I am destined for something else, for something better. There’s this quote that I’ve read before, “If you didn’t give up on getting there, then you’re not on the wrong road because everything in this world is connected.”
As for not being enough, I cannot do anything about what other people would think. I can’t please everybody, right? So I’m just going to be who I am, if they can’t accept that then I’m better off without those who can’t like me as I am. I’m just going to live my life the way I want to. You should, too.
Go ahead. Take chances. Tell the truth. Date someone totally wrong for you. Say no. Spend all your cash. Get to know someone random. Be random. Say I love you. Sing out loud. Laugh at stupid jokes. Cry. Apologize. Tell someone how much he/she means to you. Tell a jerk what you think. Laugh until your stomach hurts. Live life. Regret nothing.
