Young and Scared

Look at you. You’re young. And you’re scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralyzed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as fuck and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget that you have school the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours. When are you going to realize that you can do whatever you want?

    Is this supposed to have merit of some sort?

      Its just a line from a play… I guess it goes well with the whole. But for some people that piece has enough merit

    Much wisdom in this… As an “elder” (55 this yr…YIKES!), I appreciate this more now than ever. So much energy (time, effort, money, self-esteem…) is spent on trying to ‘be’ a certain way—– thin, shapely, hip, fashionable…it goes on & on. Unless you’re comfortable in your own skin, dance to your own drummer, sing your own song, you’ll be chasing some marketing co.’s/church’s/reality show’s/parent’s idea of how & who to be. It’s either love or fear. We DO get to choose…
