To be…

Much of life is wasted in the time spent considering if we should or shouldn’t do that thing that we’re passionate about.

That consideration is most often based on our doubts about what others will think, and rarely because we doubt the value of doing it.

Sometimes, we persevere and find the courage within ourselves to follow through despite the absence of support or encouragement from those around us.

And sometimes we stop wanting to push through because we feel worn down and invisible.

No one can change which choice we make. But the moment we choose that person that we want to share our passion with, without whom we see no point in sharing it, we give them the power to make that choice for us without them realising what power they have over us.

Sometimes, telling them about it endears them towards us.

But sometimes, the burden of expectation that it places on them pushes them further away, leaving us convinced that the value we thought we could share was not of much value at all.

The human condition is a beautifully complicated mess.
