Holding people away from you, and denying yourself love, that doesn’t make you strong. If anything, it makes you weaker. Because you’re doing it out of fear. Fear of taking that chance. Of letting go and giving into it, and that’s what makes us what we are. Risks. That’s living. Being too scared to even try it- that’s just a waste. I can say I made a lot of mistakes, but I don’t regret things. Because at least I didn’t spend a life standing outside, wondering what living would be like.
