They say the biggest mistake a person makes in their 20's is being afraid to let go. Let go of relationships, jobs, pride etc. which is why 6 months ago I was in a school that I didn’t want to be at, getting a degree that I didn’t want, while I’m still working at a job that I now hate. Why? Because I was scared of the alternative. Scared of what people would think. Scared of disappointing my family, myself. Most of all scared of the outcome if I fail.
AT ONE POINT YOU MUST DECIDE THAT YOUR HAPPINESS MATTERS MOST.
I called my mom crying telling her I didn’t want to be in school in anymore. We are conditioned from a very young age that we are to go to school, get grades and get a good job. So I guess I could understand why my family doesn’t agree with my decision, but I can’t help but to be angry. How can they not see how unhappy I am? How can they not believe in me?
However, recently I have come to realize that maybe I don’t even truly believe in myself. That I am letting fear of failure stop me from succeeding. You cannot expect someone to believe in something without giving them something to believe in. That goes for yourself and those around you. So today I am deciding to believe. I’m deciding to let go of everything holding me back and give myself a real shot at my dreams.
I HAVE TO REALIZE THAT I HAVE NOTHING TO PROVE ALL I HAVE IS TO DO IS SHARE
Which is why I am sharing this with you all, in hopes that I can inspire you. Now by no means am I telling you to drop out of school. What I am saying is to follow your dreams! Don’t let anyone or anything stop you. Especially not fear and especially not yourself. Let’s go on this journey
