“The thing about being an adult that no one tells you growing up is that you don’t feel like an adult. All your stupid insecurities and anxieties are still there, only you feel more stupid and insecure about being stupid and insecure because you’re not supposed be stupid and insecure anymore. You’re supposed to have the answers. You’re supposed to know. But we don’t always know. And those answers? They’re not always easy to come by. Well you know what? I’m done feeling stupid and insecure about feeling stupid and insecure. The truth is, I think part of being an adult is that you stop waiting for yourself to change and you start to accept who you are.”
Easier said than done right? Life, for me anyway, is a constant struggle with my insecurities and my anxieties. I am very good at calming other people down and grabbing them off the ledge, but I can’t seem to take my own advice. Ah well, one of these days I’ll figure it out. I will stop caring about what other people think of me and then I will be free and I will allow myself to have fun. The only one who is ever holding you back is yourself. And you are a worthy adversary. Just don’t let ‘you’ win forever. Life is always worth living and everyone makes a difference.
