The Fear I Long For

The Fear I Long For by Valerie Parente

The truth is I’m absolutely terrified
of being anything but absolutely terrified…
of being enough without having to prove myself
of feeling a touch without having to remove myself
of being the person I know I am
in front of someone who understands.

    Bravery isn’t about the lack of fear, instead about still having the audacity to face & overcome it. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful post! According to your convenience please do read some of my writings would love to know what you think about them. 😊
