    Poppycock

    The truth is i am terrified. But each and every day i battle my fear because i want happiness. I want love unbound by rules and regulations. I want mystery and magic. I need passion and fire, a life full of desire. So battle my fear, i face the unknown, and one day i will boldly...

    Don't Forget to Breath

    I know the next moment is not guaranteed to us. We can't be sure that our next breath will come. We can pretend we don’t know this and assume that it will be there. I so often feel like Ahab leaping into the unknown with my dagger. I throw all I am into the next moment...

    Scared

                         I used to be so scared of the dark. Well not really the dark, but the things hiding in it that I couldn't see. I used to be scared to even go somewhere I've never been. The thought of death scared me because I'm still young and I have so...

    Come What May

    I don't care what life decides to give me at this point. I've been handed so many things I've had to deal with, I've become used to tucking away expectations and just pushing myself through the dark. I have no idea what lies ahead. I don't know where I'll go, where I'll end up...

    Hesitant Perhaps... But Not Afraid...

    It's human nature to be wary of the unknown... but how can you fear what you do not know?  I like to just go into the unknown with my heart and mind open... and if its not all rainbows and butterflies well such is life... if you never try then you'll never know... and as GI...

    Lucky

    So long as I have my lucky hat with me. I shall be perfectly fine. My lucky hat protects me wherever I go and I have my complete faith in it to steer me away from dangers.

    Unafraid

    No I am not afraid of stepping into the unknown, as I know it is only unknown as long as one hesitates.

    From A Dream

    I am definitely scared as **** to step in the unknown, but then I do it anyway. Age 22: take a semester abroad in a Country you have barely heard of. Done. It was the best 6 months of my life. Age 22-27: have a long distance relationship with a person you met during the semester...

    Why Fear It?

    When you think about it, every single one of us, unless gifted with the ability of seeing into the future, steps into the unknown every single day, so why would I be afraid of it? Fears are useless, because, regardless of being afraid of the unknown, we have to face it on a...

    Dare To Evolve.

    I think people are afraid of the unknown simply because they don't know enough about it. Most of the time they're not willing to even learn about it and I think this hinders us from evolving.

    Well, Maybe a Little.....

    But I think I need to explore my boundries, push the envelope a little.  I have been living in comfort for far too long and I think I need to explore a bit outside my comfort zone.  What will I do?  I'm not sure.  Any suggestions?

    You May Say I'm A Dreamer, But I'm Not The Only One!

    LIFE, what does this mean to you? Many of us are afraid of stepping out of our comfort zones and exploring or trying new things. This is because it is scientifically proven that as human beings we are afraid of change; we prefer the known opposed to unknown. But the question I...
