In order to overcome our obstacles and fears, we have to live bravely. We have to believe that despite the situation we may be in now, it’s not going to be like that forever. We all have the power to make the changes that need to be made in our lives.
Overcoming shyness and anxiety is a huge struggle in my life. It's a barrier that has caused me to miss out on so many opportunities. I decided that I’m going to take back control by facing the very things that scare me. By putting myself in new situations, I'm able to challenge myself and let go of the limitations I put on myself.
Although change does not happen overnight, embracing a spirit of braveness helps you defeat the enemy. I choose to be an overcomer and face my fears so I could grow as an individual.
“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself” -Harvey Fierstein
