The Monsters are Only in Our Heads

In our lives, sometimes we are afraid to take a step
We are afraid to change
We are afraid to start
We are afraid to get out
We are afraid to face
We are afraid of failure
We are afraid of death
And other billions of things we might think they are scary

But you know what? It’s normal. And it’s very human.

I can’t sleep because tomorrow I’ll be on my first ride by train alone
I can’t sleep thinking what my father’s doing right now in his office
I’m afraid I fail making a great design for my best friend
I’m not sure I’m a good figure for my brother
I hesitate that I will bring my business into success
I hesitate that I am skillful enough to be fashion creator
I’m afraid that what I have today will be gone tomorrow

But after several breaths, I realize, I have to beat those fears

Fears only live in our heads
Fears are not reality unless we let them in
Even in some cases, we have to face inevitable fears,
It’s okay. Face them. Solve them. Understand them
Let them come to make us wiser
Let them come to make us greater

For fear is nothing and we are something,
Do not give up
Keep our faith
Fight back

(PS. I currently in love with this song below which belongs to Lauren Aquilina. Guess it is motivating so I made a cover for you. Enjoy my cracky voice!)

  1. You Can Be King - Lauren Aquilina (Lyrics)

    You're alone, you're on your own, so what?
    Have you gone blind?
    Have you forgotten what you have and what is yours?
    Glass half empty, glass half full
    Well either way you won't be going thirsty
    Count your blessings not your flaws

    You've got it all
    You lost your mind in the sound
    There's so much more
    You can reclaim your crown
    You're in control
    Rid of the monsters inside your head
    Put all your faults to bed
    You can be king again

    You don't get what all this is about
    You're too wrapped up in your self doubt
    You've got that young blood, set it free

    You've got it all
    You lost your mind in the sound
    There's so much more
    You can reclaim your crown
    You're in control
    Rid of the monsters inside your head
    Put all your faults to bed
    You can be king

    There's method in my madness
    There's no logic in your sadness
    You don't gain a single thing from misery
    Take it from me

    You've got it all
    You lost your mind in the sound
    There's so much more
    You can reclaim your crown
    You're in control
    Rid of the monsters inside your head
    Put all your faults to bed
    You can be king
