Suck it up, stiff upper lip, be strong, toughen up, be a man, harden up and so on.
A culture of believing strength is not showing emotion, not being vulnerable, a macho belief that we have to be hard as nails.
Cry on the inside and suffer from the so-called bravery.
People who choose to be really brave and open up, show their emotions, let their guard down and be vulnerable to the outside world are the ones who cry on the outside and end the suffering within.
Our real true-life adventure can only begin when we are prepared to let go of fear and become our true self.
It requires us to let go of popular and fitting-in. It requires bravery and the courage to be vulnerable.
It needs us to recognise the mind created psychological fear, that prohibits our true soul and essence shining, and to be bold enough to, at this very moment now, step away from it and witness it. Witnessing it allows us to just let it be and it fades and goes without energising it.
Free from the choking disability that is psychological fear, we are then able to let go and just be our soul and essence. That is when we become our higher self, when we dare to create our dreams, when we are life, not a mind rattling on about what our life can’t or won’t be.
Life is now, free from thought and fear.
Come on, let’s all take the plunge into the amazing adventure that fearless life can be…it’s called love.
