Letting go is never easy. Letting go of expectations. Letting go of hopes and dreams. Letting go of love.
These things that we fear are what keep us up at night, and haunt our thoughts during the day. We fear losing. We fear missing out. We fear not being good enough or enough at all.
Why do we fear these things?
Is it because we want others to believe in things that we don't even believe in?
Is it for the show?
Is it for the false image we strive to create so that nobody sees who we really are?
It is all of those things.
We want to be accepted. We want to be loved.
We want to feel and experience.
All of it.
What holds us back from living the life that we want?
Stop fearing the judgement. Stop fearing the unknown. Stop fearing yourself.
Take a deep breath.
What do you want?
Now go get it.
Tell someone you love them. Throw caution to the wind and write that blog post. Leave the house without makeup. Smile at a stranger.
Be you in all of your weird and quirky ways and never let anybody ( even yourself) tell you that you are not enough.
P.S. You are enough. You are amazing. You are strong. You are unique. Even without meeting unrealistic expectations, without filters, and without someone else.
Join me in living a life you love and enjoy, rather than a life you create and hate.
