Don’t let the fear of failure keep you from achieving greatness!

Most people tend to think that love is weakness; that the moment you decide to open yourself to someone, then we are vulnerable. And in truth, that is what happens. We become vulnerable, easily hurt and broken, but it doesn’t mean it’s weakness.
Love is what makes us strong, it is what makes us want to fight to become a better us, to make a change and a difference, maybe to our own lives or to someone else’s. Love is the reason any of us live to see another day, it gives us purpose.
You watch a movie and see this scene where a girl miraculously kisses a guy who was about to die but suddenly lives and you all think “aah, what a soppy scene, that’s not real”, but in truth, that one kiss is what gave him the will to fight for life, to fight for more time with the one person who gives them a purpose to live. They “miraculously” come back to life, not because it’s just a movie,but because he had found a reason to stay alive – the movie just wants you believe that love is strong enough to make a miracle happen, to give life.
Love is the strongest emotion. Those who are lucky enough to not fear it get to know just how strong it can make them. Love pushes us to the limits we never knew we could go, it makes us believers of Hope, it makes us Fighters. Those unfortunate enough to think it’s weakness, can never truly understand how much more they could be.
How can something that makes you want to fight, to live, to conquer, to be remembered, to be seen, be considered as weakness? How can something that gives you purpose in life, a reason to be and exist, be weakness? Fear is weakness, lack of hope is weakness, being unable to see past the smaller picture is weakness – but Love will never be weakness.
If you can love, with all your heart and your being, you will be the strongest person alive. Love without fear and no barriers, and you will know what real strength really feels like.
I will start by saying that if you are for the airstrikes being launched against Syria then you might feel offended by what I am going to write – but I am NOT going to apologize for it because these are my views and my blog dictates the freedom of speech.
Henceforth, I was watching a parliament discussion earlier today and it just quite frankly struck me as completely absurd that these people are sitting somewhere out there, in their safe chairs and contemplating whether or not to bomb another country – I mean, seriously? This is another people’s country you are talking about – not yours, not your people or anything, but A TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY FOREIGN COUNTRY. There is no one there of that country who can speak for or against the airstrikes. So how exactly do you just launch into a discussion of whether or not to start killing other people?
Leave alone the fact that it’s a completely different country, but there are also innocent people – millions of them as a matter of fact, and you are just going to bomb them.
I’m not saying that the terrorists should be left to walk the streets and keep killing – not at all, but you cant just go and start bombing the whole country for the hope – minimal hope at that – that you will kill them in the process.
Do you even know where exactly these terrorists are located? Have you pinpointed their location and are sure where you will drop these bombs will hit their mark? What if you’re wrong? What if you are killing more innocent people than terrorists? Are you willing to live with that on your conscience? And if you are, does it make it alright to just kill? How does that make you any different from those terrorists then? Because you have the power to do it without hiding? Because no one will try to bomb you in your bed? Because you are living off somewhere safe and aren’t even experiencing the horrors of the bombings?
You tell me – is this what the world is going back to? To bombs and mass murder? Because quite frankly, no matter how y’all try to explain these bombings and no matter how much you sit down and talk about it and vote on them – at the end of the day – it’s quite simply MURDER!
