Doing OR Don’ting in life: The fear is always there either way.

There’s fear if we do the things in our lives that we want to do, fear of failure, fear of success, fear of finding out your life-long/biggest dream isn’t going to work, fear of hard work, fear of pain both emotional and physical, fear of loneliness, fear of not conforming to society “properly”, and the like.

However there are just as many fears that come with the “don’ts” as well. If we don’t follow our dreams, there is the fear of staying put or settling, the fear of being tormented the rest of your life for not trying, the fear of staying in one place, the fear of what other people will think.

No matter what these will always be the two thoughts people have when making decisions for their life. That’s a fact, and probably won’t change, because it’s part of our nature as humans. But what’s also part of our nature as humans is our ability to choose between our do’s and don’ts, and determine which is more important, and will be the best option for you.

Up until this point in my life, I’ve chosen the easier “DON’T” approach, and just let my dreams glide further and further away, because I thought I’d be safer if I stayed put. But now, my mind is opening and I’m seeing more light and leaning harder towards choosing to go after my dreams knowing I’d rather look back in 30-50 years (the time bracket I hope to live into), and also knowing that I embraced more of my do fears, and fewer of my don’t fears and lived a full and exciting life. Even if by the time I get to my end, I can’t remember them myself, I’ll at least know others can and will remember.
