We are afraid of the wrong things.

We are afraid to be ourselves. We go through life cautiously because we are afraid of what others think. It’s common knowledge; people do things they don’t really want to do to impress other people. Peer pressure? Its something you experience throughout your life and it’s probably never going to go away.

The truth is, no one wants to be looked down upon or judged by others. As much as we say we don’t care, we do. Somebody famous once said, “no man is an island unto himself”,  and it’s true.

We cut, copy, paste and edit parts of ourselves in order to fit in and be accepted, but that’s not how it should be.

A word to the wise, in life we shouldn’t be afraid of being ourselves because of what others think. Instead, we should be afraid of losing ourselves in the process of fearing what others think.
