Overcoming Failure

I fucked up my life.

I feel like I have no options when in fact I have many. 

I choose to believe that this is over because I’m tired of being disappointed, yet I do nothing to find a solution.

I have spent my time being lazy, fearful, afraid to work, afraid to interact, afraid of the unknown, and afraid of what is known.

Often what I think is something to fear, is actually nothing to be afraid of.

I am smart, I know the difference, I am logical.

So why am I afraid?

Am I actually afraid or have I built habits that make me feel afraid?

Is this all in my head?

I don’t know anymore. But I do know I have a second chance.

I have a chance to live a life, get a job, pay my way, plan for my future, and take hold of who I am.

And who am I? Well, I’m not sure.

I’m a boy. I’m human. I am weak. I am strong.

I just need to get through this.

I can get through this.

  1. What you wrote was short but powerful. The fact that you are taking your second chance instead of letting your fear stop you is huge. Your words also can help others. As I usually say Happy Thoughts! 🙂

  2. I feel this. I really do. I have a job though, but I honestly feel lost within in it and I want to quit. I’m constantly worrying about what’s going to happen next or what’s not going to happen. I agree. Short, yet powerful. And relatable.

  3. Just stop regret yourself! Now you should learn to control your thoughts.. Think about what you want, what you find interesting and slowly move this way, don`t require a lot of from yourself. Don’t take seriously your life, try to play 🙂

  4. A thing I picked up (from Alice in wonderland of all places) is to think of 5 things that could be worse, things are hard and finding your path can feel impossible but Its not as impossible as it seems… You will find your way you just have to believe in yourself, you can do anything you set your mind to 🙂
    Try to smile even if its about something small… A particularly fluffy cloud or find a comedien to watch before you start your day (I recommend Daniel sloss) don’t give up, there’s always another day to try again x
