What would you do if you weren't afraid?

I think that if everyone knew the truth about each other, the world would be a better place.

People would be a lot more understanding.

But we don’t know the truth. Not many of us know, anyway. The way I see it, we all hide secrets. It’s simply a part of human nature. I’m no psychologist, but I think we shut certain parts of ourselves away because we are afraid. Not “afraid,” like “I’m afraid of closed spaces,” but afraid: the force that traps our hearts inside of us, the kind of afraid that embodies our fear of what has already given us bruises, our fear of what will happen if...

We are afraid of what people will say.
We are afraid of revealing our flaws.

We are afraid of, in sharing our deepest secrets, losing a part of ourselves that we can never truly get back. We are all deceiving mirrors and broken shadows, and every day we walk by one another without really seeing anything at all. And because we’re all hiding from ourselves, that makes us afraid of the truth.

But what would you do if you weren’t afraid?
