I just wrote about 4 paragraphs and then deleted them. So yep.
Just witnessed a fly commit suicide by lightbulb.
Nothing hits harder than reality
It can come at you at the worst of times
So you must keep a strong mentality
Find the good that’s hidden between the lines
Expect the worst when you hope for the best
have self-respect and be understanding
Because you don’t want to be like the rest
Positively keep knowledge expanding
Never let failure becomes something strange
Embrace your mistakes like it’s your mentor
Ignore the negative things you can’t change
'Cause you have to lose, in order to gain
Some lessons in life, are best learned through pain
- Paolo Camero
Fearlessness is not the same as the absence of fear.
The fearless person is well aware of the fear he or she faces. The fear, though, becomes a compass, not a barrier. It becomes a way to know what to do next, not an evil demon to be extinguished.
When we deny our fear, we make it stronger.
When we reassure the voice in our head by rationally reminding it of everything that will go right, we actually reinforce it.
Pushing back on fear doesn’t make us brave and it doesn’t make us fearless. Acknowledging fear and moving on is a very different approach, one that permits it to exist without strengthening it.
Life without fear doesn’t last very long—you’ll be run over by a bus (or a boss) before you know it. The fearless person, on the other hand, sees the world as it is (fear included) and then makes smart (and brave) decisions.
