Daring Darling

To Whom it May Concern;

When you live on your own without your parents or older siblings to magically solve your problems... you have to be daring.

  • When your only washing machine breaks... dare yourself find a way to fix it.
  • When the dishes pile up... dare yourself to wash them.
  • When you wake up and you find out you have been sleeping on top of a freshly dead mouse all night... dare yourself to try not to throw up, toss it outside, scourge yourself in the shower and wash your sheets...
  • And if you can't fix your washing machine... well then... good luck.

Do your fears stop you from living? If they do then they are a problem and you should talk to someone. For those of us who know what bravery and courage means... a moment of fear or gruesomeness will be just that. A moment. Close your eyes, pick up that mouse (no, not the computer one, the dead one underneath your pillow...) and just get it over with. The more you think about it, the more time you spend delaying will be more time in fear and anxiety. I am sure there is something that you have been putting off. Just do it. You are capable of finding a solution and maybe part of that solution is asking someone else. This is what being an adult is all about.
