Going through a hard time in your life, facing a trauma – can either make you or – break you. You’re the only one who can decide which option you will choose.
It helps when you have people who care about you there to hold your hand, to tell you it’s gonna be fine, to help abate the fear. But in the middle of the night, there’s only you and your fear. When worry eats at you and you’re unable to sleep.
Fear. Your worst enemy. Fear takes away the masks we wear to protect ourselves, leaving us vulnerable and defenseless. Fear is the dark bottomless pit waiting to swallow you whole.
You can either decide to fold under your fear or stand tall and rise up to it. That’s the moment that defines you, who you are, who you choose to be.
Maybe it’s because I’m going through something similar or maybe it was watching Warehouse 13’s last episode, which emphasized on defining moments, that brought this on.
All I can say is when you face your fear and go through your traumatic experience without folding under it, you come out of it stronger.
So don’t fold. Don’t let your fear control you. Face it.
Choose to become stronger.
