You are afraid of what they might think.
Afraid of what they might say.
Afraid of what they might do.
And so the relationship is never challenged. But it may never be saved either.
The distrust and anger may escalate. Or the misunderstanding may be resolved.
You never know what is possible if you don’t do
what you’re most afraid to do.
What if you never tell the story you were born to tell?
What if you never save the soul that only you can reach?
What if you never live the life you came here to live?
You rob us of your artistry. You steal from us the love that you alone can give. And you strip your soul of the potential to be all that you were meant to be.
A life poorly lived is the greatest human tragedy, for when any one of our lives is squandered, we are all impoverished.
