Courage & Fear

Ever tried to stop someone from hurting you? moved out of a hurting and dying relationship?? ever told someone very dear that their acts of love were in fact straining the relationship instead of making things better??? 

It takes a lot of courage to do that doesn't it?? but have you observed that it is in fact the fear that actually brought out the courageous self in you? There is in fact no courage without fear... courage is that which conquers fear...  Courage doesn't mean you don't see the difficulties and dilemmas attached to the situation; courage is your willingness to face the difficulty and cross the hurdle and reach your destination in spite of the fear in you.


It takes courage to end an unhealthy relationship, to quit an unsatisfied job, to ask for what you need and want out of life. It takes courage to be honest to others and to one's self. It takes courage to go against your loved one's to live your dreams.. it takes courage to liveSo all of you out there, its time to let courage and not fear rule your life. 
Because as Holly says 
"This is my one and only life, And its a great and terrible and short and endless thing, and none of us come out of it alive


So why give up the best and the most tempting things in life for fear???

absolutely true.. fear almost always overwhelms courage in such circumstances. Taking a leap when you're not sure what the future holds can be one of the most scariest things for anyone... that's what allows most unhealthy relationships to continue...

P.S. Nice new look.

Yes, U said it right! Its not worth working at a place where there's no future for u. Same goes with being in a relationship that wont last. It ll only hurt more. And yeah! its a short life. So as Gerry replied to Holly (with a lil modification of my own),

" If you can promise me anything, promise me that whenever you're sad, or unsure, or you lose complete faith, that you'll try to see yourself through the eyes of those who love u, and then you ll realise how special u are."
