We are the ones who build bars of seclution and isolation from the people we love and dreams we have yet to allow ourselves to pursue.
Sure we can come up with a laundry list of excuses as to why we can't do or be with the people we really want, but at the end of the day...we know we are the only ones who stand in the way of ourselves. So why do we so often torture ourselves with a lifetime sentence of confinement?
Perhaps we are afraid.
We are afraid to fail, and yet we are afraid to succeed. We are afraid to venture outside of our comfort zone and at the same time we are afraid of standing still, or even worse-standing alone.
But what will happen if we break out of the steel bars and barbed wires we so cowardly place in front of our fear and actually fight for the person inside we know we can be?
If we are all hidden or driven by fear, who would we be...?
