Embracing Bravery and Finding My Light

The multipart self-awareness has helped me to find my inner strength and finally get out of this darkness.

Life is an easy-going park, but it is up to you whether you want to see it that way or not.

Once, I used to be terrified. Scared of novelties, scared of failing, as well as scared of what people think. The world seemed to be watching out for blame on me. I would be unable to solve it.

But then I realized something: the ability to be brave is not the skill of being without fear at all. It is the mindset of doing things despite knowing your whims.

I consider the bravest people I know are not those who do not fear at all, but instead just take those chances which are being given to them. They are aware they can get hurt, or make a mistake, but they are also sure that great things might be achieved when they leave their comfort zone.

But here’s the truth: there on their ways they are going to tell.

They’ll gossip about you and pass judgment, but you shouldn’t let them run your life. It’s not what happens in life, but how you respond to that is what makes you who you are. Either you will waste your energy seeking everyone’s approval, or you will consciously decide to get to know yourself.

Be yourself, because this is the most powerful attitude you can have.


It is about finding your way out as well as you can and using it. It’s you deciding what you are going to do and what not by not letting anyone be in charge of your happiness.

There will be times when it will be impossible. I will experience some setbacks and failures, and it may be discouraging at times. Yet, those minor achievements are just bricks on which others are built. They transition you from a total dependence on your parents towards an autonomous and more empowered you.

You start gathering yourself, erect yourself, and keep going on. The more you walk, the more you learn, and the stronger you are.

The experience might appear extremely fearful at first glance, but, on the other hand, it would be full of freedom for you too. It is just about waking up to your own grandness and recognizing there are great things that you can accomplish. You are illuminated from within, it is time to let your beacon be lit.

Thank you for reading!
