Be brave, face your fears, live free

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”
I took this quote by Jim Morrison, the intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown. It basically sums up a risky and brave way of living. To expose yourself to your fears, especially your deepest ones, is no easy task, it's, in fact, one of the most difficult things to perform. Having said so, i shall also say that the reward after doing this is as big as the challenge itself, if not even bigger. They say the truth shall set you free. Well, I think that the truth lies beyond our fears, for once we have seen that our fears are nothing but fiction of our minds, we shall be free from them. Behind every fear, we will find that there is no actual threat, and therefore, if this is true, facing our fears and uncovering their veils, shall ultimately set us free. Now, why so much effort put into actually being free? Sometimes people are even afraid of too much freedom, too many liberties might scare, even in thought, a lot of us. What to do with so much freedom? Who are we and who will make sure that we are capable of running things by ourselves? Well, as the quote puts it, only when we have no fear at all, we shall see that even freedom itself will not put us down and we shall conquer ourselves and be quite capable of leading our lives, not only in any way we might choose, but also fearlessly. Now, if you're still not confident enough to put your guts to work and fight your terrors, I can guess there will always be someone around to perform the job with. I know I would. Look for me, and I promise, I'll do it with you. You pick the place and I'll choose the time, for everyday is the right day to do it, and we'll both climb our mountain of fears and go through our tunnels of dread and come out victorious on the other side. Made free and found brave.
