When was the last time you felt embarrassed? Lonely? Hopeless? If you can’t remember, you’re probably doing it wrong. Life isn’t meant to be lived in steady state happiness. If you haven’t felt heartbreak, you probably haven’t loved. Joy is sweeter after bitterness.
Love hard, be occasionally reckless, say yes to adventure. You can start by stepping your toe outside your comfort zone, or you can harness that rare desire to do so and jump out with an unreliable parachute.
At least you'll be able to say you tried. And I promise you: you are strong enough to deal with failure, or embarrassment, or even most of all: success.
Take a risk. Accept failure. Know the heartbreak will come, but decide the ecstasy of love is worth it. Let go. You might die tomorrow, after all.
