The Cracked Glass
We all fear something, it is the deepest, darkest secrets we harbor, the one thing that we would not indulge in others if possible.
Many would agree that fear is needed for us to grow stronger; "Face your fears" they say, "charge through it with determined mind and strength, when you do, you will be stronger." To me it is always easier said than done.
Most people would not face their fears willingly, given a choice, they would rather evade it for as long as they can. It is only normal. In a way, to be afraid is to be human.
I believe in accepting your fear. We are imperfect creatures, and we will never be whole. Living a happy life also means accepting you will come to pass.
All glass will shatter in the end, but it is the stained glass, cracked and imperfect, that shines out its beauty the most.I believe that accepting your flaws, living with them, will give you a more fulfilling life.
Maybe living is not about being perfect, but knowing that you have lived up to your own self.
