I'm fearless

Ray-Ban P

To me, fearless is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. Fearless is falling madly in love again, even though you’ve been hurt before. Fearless is walking into your freshmen year of high school at fifteen. Fearless is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again… even though every time you’ve tried before, you’ve lost. It’s fearless to have faith that someday things will change. Fearless is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can’t breathe without them. I think it’s fearless to fall for your best friend, even though he’s in love with someone else. And when someone apologizes to you enough times for things they’ll never stop doing, I think it’s fearless to stop believing them. It’s fearless to say “you’re NOT sorry”, and walk away. I think loving someone despite what people think is fearless. I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is fearless. Letting go is fearless. Then, moving on and being alright… That’s fearless too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after. That’s why I write these songs. Because I think love is fearless.

    Hmm, fearless. To me, fearless means overcoming your fears, it means you gather all your courage to do something new, exciting, difficult,...
    I'm not that familiar with Taylor Swift (I know who she is, that's about it :S) but the things she said here are all true.
    Be fearless Helen! :)

  5. Likeeeeee!! =D
    Wow I wish I could take a beautiful photo of myself like you have there of yourself.

  6. Oh holy shoot! I thought you were the one that wrote this fearless paragraph, and then I saw "Taylor Swift" on the bottom. I think this little cutesy speech is pretty bold and daring. I was so ready to be FEARLESS in the middle of all this!

    By the way, I think you look badass in those Rayban stunas!

    Also, thanks for the comment! I guess the owner really wasn't thinking about the consenquences of naming his restaurant "Pho Kim Long"... Or was he doing it in purpose? O_O Gosh... We will never know.
