“A decision based in fear of the reactions of others is unstable. Such an inauthentic choice cascades into a series of delusions that will, eventually, bring you (mentally, emotionally, and spiritually) back to zero. Go ahead. Try it out. See, what did I tell you.
“If you want to make sound, lasting choices, you appreciate the loving people in your life that raise your demons from the depths by calling you out on your bullshit. You welcome the opportunity to face that fear, to let it stare you down, let it use everything in its arsenal to try to make you cower into safety, into the known. And THAT is the moment you lean in with the heightened attention of courage and you mother fucking roar.
“Choices made from fear are decisions wrapped in delusion. The only reality is courage.” -Amy Larson, amyjalapeno.com
