People say fear is a choice.
Well, so is ignorance. Stupid is a choice.
Being less than yourself is a choice. So is unkindness.
Dumbing yourself down for others is a choice. And a poor one, at that. Lifting less weight because you’re scared of being strong. Snarky gossip.
Keeping your mouth shut when you really want to stand up and take on the forces of hate in this world? That’s a choice too.
You know what?
Imagine what your life would be like if you said every morning, “Hey World, here’s who I am. Time to get shit done.”
Hide your light under a basket? Smash the basket. Blind the crowd with your light.
Even the Bible says “Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.”
Stop hiding. Go f***ing light up the world.
