And Yet We Let Other People Dictate Our Decisions

Most people like to warn us about the stuff that we shouldn’t do.

They give us all of the what-ifs,

the maybes,

the possible consequences to the answers we don’t yet have.

But why?

We have this beautiful life,

this moment,

this chance to jump into the unknown,

this exceptional gift

to let our hearts take control.

And So It Is Choice, Not Obligation

To fall into yourself

is the most enlightening

and beautiful place to fall.

Because once you have,

dear,

you can fall safely into other things, too.

Bringing gentleness into pain,

adding softness into uncertainty,

knowing that these outside things are not going to break you.

Because you have your truth.

The one that tells you

that no matter the circumstance,

you will always have yourself.
