Fear is like a group of chains, holding you back from the things you really want and need. Each time you overcome fear, it’s like breaking another chain.

I remember when I was young and free, before I knew heartbreak, before I truly knew pain. I just lived. I lived through the pleasure and through the fear and through the pain. I always believed in myself, believed that I could do anything. After feeling so much pain, pain that came from loving, from caring, from taking risks, I became more afraid of being rejected, of being hurt, and of making mistakes. Growing through all of it made me who I am today, and I have no regrets, but I do know that I can’t let fear hold me back. I look it in the eye. I look people in the eye. I say what’s on my mind. I tell people how I feel. I don’t hide behind masks. I am who I am.

I find beauty in pain. Pain teaches us to see the beauty of life, of love, of loyalty, friendship, and understanding. Life is beautiful. People forget that.

I’m not afraid to love. Love isn’t just a feeling. The feeling is just a part of it. The feeling is what compels us to do the action of loving. Finding complete joy in giving someone else joy, in giving someone else a piece of yourself, of your heart, of your soul...that’s love. It’s not about finding someone you "can’t live without." It’s about finding someone who intensifies the color of your world. It’s about looking into someone’s eyes and seeing the beauty inside them that’s intangible, the beauty that comes from their spirit. Being in love with someone means wanting to make them feel the most intense pleasure they’ve ever felt and make them feel more alive than they ever have. You feel a passion that goes far beyond lust and longing. It makes you feel more alive than you’ve ever felt.
