Refusing Fear

Scared child

Image via Wikipedia

Last week, I put up some stuff on fear because it is something that I have been struggling with.
Regretting the decisions that I have made in my life is one of my biggest fears. I always wonder if I am doing something wrong and it scares the crap out of me. In order to keep from feeling afraid in the past, I resorted to not doing anything at all.
For the first time, I am able to admit this problem and I think that this is a big step.
Instead of running away, I now force myself to sit and think about what I have to lose.
If I try and fail then I can pick my self up and try again, but if I never try then I will never know.
Never knowing what I could have done or who I could have helped is the worst thing imaginable to me.
Now, I am constantly going against my inner thoughts and fears. I refuse to keep quiet out of fear that someone will not agree. I refuse to be simple-minded because I am afraid to fail.I refuse to let anyone tell me what I can and cannot do. I can do anything that I put my mind to. I will not stop.

“Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.”

-Louis E. Boone

Can’t Take That Away

Mariah Carey delivered an inspiring message in her song, “Can’t Take That Away “( below) :

I am Vulnerable.

I am vulnerable.

I worry about what people think.

I let them control me.

I make plans that I don’t follow through.

I have dreams that don’t come true.

I put everything above them.

I think they are unimportant.

I think I that they are too big.

I think that I am too small.

I am vulnerable.

Respected Life means so much to me.It is a part of my dream.

I will explain why.

When I was growing up, I did not have much.I watched my parents be belittled,bashed, and betrayed.

I watched them struggle. I watched them cry. I watched them smile.

They taught me how to live. They taught me how to fight. They taught me how to inspire.

My family has been without. We still are without, but we are happy. We won’t stop fighting. We won’t stop smiling.

My parents always tell me to strive for the best. They want me to pass every test.

I am vulnerable.

I don’t want my family to struggle. I don’t want them to cry.I want them to have the world. I throw myself into my studies.  I forget about everything else. I am only focused on getting better. I forget about fun. I forget about  friends. I forget about dreams.

I am vunerable.

I just want to help. I want to help more than my family. I want to help more than the poor. I want to help more than myself.I want to help the teen who doesn’t know how to fix her hair. I want to help the single dad or mom who is having trouble paying the bills. I want to help the  diabetic  on dialysis. I want to help anyone who wants to make difference.

I know that I don’t have the popularity of a celebrity. My blog is not a “top” blog, but I believe that it can help others.  I believe that everybody is somebody. If I can make  one person smile, then I have succeeded.

Well, what if I don’t succeed?  That is the question that I often ask myself. This is why I run away. This is why I’m inconsistent.

This is why I am vulnerable.

This is why I need to change.

This is why I will change.

This is why I am strong.

“You cannot let go of anything if you cannot notice that you are holding it. Admit your ‘weaknesses’ and watch them morph into your greatest strengths.”- Neale Donald Walsch
