“It’s time you bit the bullet and started caring about something with all your heart and energy! But you can’t do that if you’re always holding yourself back in case it doesn’t work out!” ~Genkai, from Yu Yu Hakusho
This quote is all about the hesitation that comes from the fear of failure, of things not working out. It stresses the importance of being able to fully commit yourself to something that’s important to you, despite any fears you may have. In our lives there will always be things we are afraid of. These things can cause us to not only hesitate, but to stop completely. It is immensely valuable to learn how to keep going forward while acknowledging and accepting the reality of our fears. We shouldn’t ignore them or suppress them and act like they’re not there, and we shouldn’t let them bring us to a halt.
