If you have even the smallest chance of getting something that makes you happy, but it’s risky. Just go out and do it. Get it. Life’s too short and happiness is too rare. Don’t let the fear of failing or embarrassment stop you. It’s your past that’s holding you back from being happy in the present. The fear inside you is your mind telling you “No, don’t do it, you’ll get hurt, that’s what happened before” but that’s not always true.
If you do get hurt then remember this, you got hurt before and thought you’d never get over it. But guess what? You did. What does that mean? It means you can do it again. If anything, getting hurt only made you stronger because now you know you’ll survive it.
