Guts over fear

“Life is a roller coaster ride. Scream or enjoy the ride.”

Whoever said that life isn’t easy, is absolutely right. It is that roller coaster ride that you can’t excuse yourself out of. It is that ride that doesn’t come with a set of safety instructions. You just need to do what you have to without worrying about the result because it is going to be either one of the two – you’re going to scream, shout and break down or you’re going to dress up, show up and enjoy it.

There are no two ways about anything when it comes to life.

Be it family, friendship, relationships or your work life, everything out there has something to teach. Every little experience changes you in an unexpected manner. If you’re open to change, it is good for you but if you’re not, you are going to have to deal with a lot more than you think.

HURT in order to KNOW,
FALL in order to GROW,
LOSE in order to GAIN,
Because life’s greatest lessons are learned through PAIN.

There is going to fear instilled to you; but then again, that is just human. All you need to know is, everytime something happens you need to choose guts over fear. Guts over the fear of getting hurt. Guts over the fear of moving on. Guts over the fear of being replaced. Guts, because fear won’t get you anywhere.

You could make a thousand friends,
Yet be betrayed by most of them.
To each his own,
Just know there’s nothing they can do to make you drown.

You could fall in love with the one,
Have a fight and be done by the set of the sun.
To each his own,
Don’t let this make you hurt prone.

You could be someone’s guiding stick,
All you might get in return is a kick.
To each his own,
But don’t let anyone have you blown.

You could get a big time break,
That could end like that yummy cake.
To each his own,
There’s nothing that can throw you off your throne.

You could be the best in your field,
But there will always be an alternative from whom one could yield.
To each his own,
But there is no one to be “you” in the battle zone.

You could break down sometimes,
But being human is not a crime.
To each his own,
But there are things deeper sown.

To each his own,
There is no one who can make a clone.
No one who can replace you,
Because there are no twos.

To each his own,
But no one who can break your stride,
With comments oh-so-snide.
You need to just let it slide.

To each his own,
But Eminem’s songs are more than just raps you want to disown.
Rightly said, sometimes you need people to rub it in your face,
Before you actually become an ace.

Guts over fear,
Because the world out there isn’t going to be that dear.

There is nothing in the world that can pull you down.
There is no one who can make you a clown.
There is just one person who stands by your side always.
It is only YOU, any which ways.
