I want you to know something… You are not alone.
In fact, I’m in the same boat as you right now. This month will be one of the hardest months for me… For various reasons. No matter how hard I try to stay calm and let things take their course, I can’t help but feel anxious about what’s to come.
I’m afraid of what the future holds. I’m afraid that anyone I get close with will leave once I open up to them. I’m afraid that the people who I hold close to my heart will one day realize what a burden I am. I’m afraid that those who are moving thousands of miles away will completely forget about me. I’m afraid that I’ll never amount to anything. I’m afraid that I’m going to feel “stuck” in the same place for the rest of my life. I’m afraid of what’s to come.
The future is scary, to say the least. Not knowing what may or may not happen is nerve-wracking, but you need to keep going. Don’t let the fear of the unknown stop you from moving forward.
I know it’s hard. Trust me, I know how hard it is. There were (and still are) times where I let my fear of the future stop me dead in my tracks. Then when I finally get the push I need that forces me to move forward, I always realize that things are never as bad as I think.
Wherever you’re at in your life right now, whatever fear or pain you may be feeling, you need to keep going.
If you keep going, you keep growing.
