I’m gonna say this because I do it myself:
Stop filtering yourself.
I’m not saying you should say or do whatever comes to mind,
The first thing that pops in your head,
But try to worry a little less.
It’s not gonna result in the end of the world.
You’ll be fine,
What are we so afraid of, after all?
Letting yourself loose a little?
What could be so bad about it…?
I dare you.
Compliment that random person you admired on the streets,
Let your loved ones know how much you care about them,
Dance around whenever you feel like it, even if there’s no music playing.
Speak your truth.
Stand for what you believe in.
If you miss someone you haven’t talked to in a long time…
Send that damn message in the middle of the night,
Or the song it made you remind of a certain person.
Stop going through ”what if’s” all the time,
Overthinking the consequences.
The only outcome here is the one followed by your real actions.
Don’t be so afraid of your feelings,
Of what people will think of you.
Stop trying to come across as this untouchable,
Immune from feeling anything person.
You’ll only regret the things you didn’t do,
And the emotions you didn’t allow yourself to go through.
