It’s Okay To Be Afraid

It’s okay to be afraid. It’s how you recognize courage.

It’s okay to have doubts. It’s when you learn to have faith.

It’s okay to fall. It’s how you learn to rise.

It’s okay to be defeated. It’s where you learn how to win.

It’s okay to be in the dark. It’s how you see the flame.

It’s okay to make mistakes. It shows you the way to mastery.

It’s okay to get scars. They are Life’s medals of adventures.

And when you came out from trials and tribulations triumphant,

It is now your privilege and duty

To find a wounded soul, and tell him

“It’s okay….”

  1. Om Piring,
    I read and read again your post and it made me shiver…

    If I may share…
    A year ago, I was lost.
    I fell down to the lowest point of my life.
    Everything seemed so dark and I barely saw any path for me to walk.
    at first, I kept telling myself that I had to keep fighting and win that battle on my own. I forced myself to stay strong and stand still. Exhausted, but afraid to be left behind. Wanted to admit defeated, but afraid to be judged. Overwhelmed, but insisted to stay strong.
    Then I fell even further.

    And at that time, some dear people came and said “It’s okay…”
    Then finally I cried…
    I thought that I’d always need to be strong and fine,
    in order to be loved, in order to be accepted.
    But apparently, not.

    That sentence saved me…

    Right now, I’m doing just fine. But again, your post reminds me to that feeling. And I’m saved, all over again.

    Yes, it’s okay…
    It’s really okay.
    Now it’s my turn to say to the other lost soul.

    Thank you for your beautiful post.
    May God bless you abundantly πŸ™‚
