The Fear of Happiness

Do you ever self-sabotage? I call it the fear of the unknown. I’ve been taught to trust nothing—and no one. Sometimes, a good thing comes along that is really awesome. Maybe that thing is indeed cool; maybe that’s just the dreamer in you, your illusioned self. Do you always think you’ve got the best? Are you happy with what you have, your life? Have you settled? Do you want more? What will you be brave enough to risk for your own personal happiness? You do only have to live with you at the end of the day; it’s your life. Be happy. You are going to break many people if you live authentically. It may or may not be worth it. Own it, because you are yours.
