What is it called when your fear of failure keeps you from taking a leap of faith which ultimately results in you being a failure anyway?
This is the problem that I've faced for years now. It's such a weird place to be in. I could never quite figure out why or how I even got in this position. I've always looked at myself as someone with a lot of self confidence. I'm comfortable in my own skin and mind.
I've also realized that that may be part of my problem. I'm TOO comfortable. I've become complacent. A self-saboteur. Because I thought that I knew myself, I failed to realize my full value. My full potential. I stopped putting in the work needed to fulfill what I wanted because I felt like I had done enough when, really, I hadn't done a thing at all.
Without delving too deep into it though, that text message above was the punch in the chest that I needed. It was that tough love from a friend saying "nigga, get your shit together." That is the purpose of this site. It's me getting my shit together. Me trying to fulfill my own destiny. This is my stage, my voice, my thoughts, my feelings, my opnions. All mine. A leap of faith in search of my own freedom.
