Have you ever looked at a coconut tree and wondered, why did you grow that way?
No? Well I have. Usually there’s a bunch of them standing tall and mighty, and then you spot the odd one.
Someone recently asked me; what’s it like to be by yourself, in your own company? I answered and said lonely AF. No one wants to be alone or die a lonely old soul. So what if you decided to give love a chance? Instantly, you start thinking of the what ifs and your feet haven’t even hit the ground as yet. What if it actually worked out and changed things? Scary huh?
No one ever wants to talk about it; we always try to put up a front. The world doesn’t need to know how you’re feeling. Hearing someone say that they ‘love’ being in love was a surprise to me. Yes being in love is exciting; yet scary at the same damn time. I see myself as the odd coconut tree. Always searching for another way out, which is totally okay in some cases. I find myself running, putting up walls and guarding my heart, because I’m scared.
What would happen if you broke down the walls of fear, stepped out in faith and try something that excites you? Chances are you can end up loving it or be disappointed, but you’ll never know unless you try. Same rule applies with a lot of situations we face every single day, not just love.
You can’t experience all the awesomeness life has to offer with your heart guarded or half-open.
