When I realised that my well-thought decisions were taking away my dream, I was scared. The fear of failure hit me hard even before I had seen failure. Somehow this fear settled deep inside in my heart.
I refused to talk to anyone. I refused to go out. I refused to eat. I refused to smile. I refused to breathe.
I refused to try because I didn’t want to lose my dream to failure.
I lost my dream. I didn’t lose it to failure. I lost my dream to my fear of failure.
Present day: As I told earlier, I dared to dream again. It was difficult. But I did. Thanks to those people who taught me to have faith in flight. Sometimes I still fear that I might fail.
I realised that it’s okay to fail. I realised that it’s okay to fear the failure. But it’s not okay to sit back. I need to give a chance to myself. I need to have faith. I need to have faith in myself if I want to fly, to be free.
I am taking little steps, one thing at a time and one day at a time. I am learning to have faith in my flight because I am a fighter.
