Playing it safe is FUCKING TERRIFYING

If you are awake and ambitious, then living a ‘safe’ life in which you always take the easy path and don’t lean into your fears or grow or evolve or strive to reach your potential will actually fill you with a constant sense of apprehension. A mild undercurrent of dread will be your unwelcome life companion.

This sense of apprehension is much more difficult to live with that the short, sharp blasts of fear followed by divine releases and serenity that come with living a life in which you are brave and live at your edge.

There is no sweeter sensation than the satisfied calm that you feel after you’ve stepped out of your comfort zone and did something new and scary, or didn’t do something harmful and counterproductive that in the past you would have done. You can rest easy, safe in the knowledge that you are moving in the right direction. Ahhhh, bliss. C’est delicieux!

You are proving to yourself that you can handle life.

Going up to that attractive person may be scary, it may be easier to just get high and eat ice-cream again, “oh what the hell, I’ll just masturbate to hardcore porn again”, “I better check my facebook, it’s been 10 mins since I was last on, maybe people will miss me etc etc. It’s always easy to do the wrong thing; you avoid the short, sharp blast of discomfort that comes with stepping into your fears. But not doing the right thing by living at your edge, being disciplined and strong will lead to much more stress and anxiety in the long term.

Do you want to feel apprehensive and anxious forever??!! The only way to feel good is to take action. Short, sharp shock followed by contented calm now, or long drawn-out undercurrent of unceasing dread and anxiety for a lifetime? You decide.

I wanna feel content on my deathbed.

I vote live at your edge, have a sense of humor, test yourself – grow and feel great.
