“I’m not afraid of anything.”

If you say this

people won’t believe you.

They will challenge your statement

and gives numerous examples

from your past

that show

how afraid

you actually are.

They insinuate

that your statement isn’t true

and only a way

to lie to yourself.

“It’s a defense mechanism.”

“It’s okay to be afraid, because fear keeps you alive.”

These people are nuts

and they will insinuate

you are crazy.

Not to be self-conscious

means,

not to care about the impression you make.

Not to be afraid

means,

you don’t care.

People won’t be able to relate to you.

It is actually, they

who are afraid of you.

When you realize this, it’s obvious

and then, it’s easier to relax.

Of course, you’re going to have awkward conversations.

Uncomfortable things will be said, like

“Nice weather, isn’t it.”

Talk with an intimidating person

and you will notice his judgements

and dismissive expressions.

Then, he will make an excuse to get away from you

which might leave you

feeling

as if your hard work

was for nothing.

He goes

to

somebody else who he knows

because he doesn’t like to be uncomfortable.

Now, take a dangerous activity

like skydiving

scuba diving

flying

or motorcycle riding

and the same person will say, “It’s not worth the risk.”

“I don’t want to put my life on the line.”

They are wet clothes

unwilling

to dry out.

If there’s something that you want to do

don’t put it off…

Otherwise, you will be wrinkled

and dead

in bed

like a pile of wet laundry.

Fear

is you

inside

a wet circle.

The sublime

is you

outside

in the warm sunlight.

  1. Life without fears is so refreshing. And its not like you become fearless entirely. You just learn to overcome them, and not the other way around.

    There are million other ways people can connect, if only people are willing to see that.

    Impressive way of expression. Thumbs up!
