A Note to No One in Particular

No Subtitle

By J.D. BradleyPublished 2 years ago 1 min read

Why are you scared of life?

Do you fear that you will get hurt?

You will get hurt.

You will get hurt over and over and over

for so long as you walk this Earth

It can destroy you or it can be a growth experience.

You choose.

Do you fear rejection?

You will be rejected,

Time and time again.

You'll likely be mocked from time to time

and on occasion publicly ridiculed

Move on.

Cease caring

Devour those experiences

and move forward.

Too many people choose victimization

When there is a better designation available,


and from there,


Pain is the currency with which we pay for strength.
