Fear.

Do not fear to remember.
Fear to forget.

Do not fear to love.
Fear to never love.

Do not fear to replace someone.
Fear being replaced.

Do not fear others.
Fear yourself.

Do not fear success.
Fear failure.

Do not fear fear.
Fear everything.


That way when you fear to remember-
You know you survived and made it.

When you fear to love-
You don't risk regret.

When you fear to replace someone-
You jeopardize yet another missed one.

When you fear others-
You forget that only you determine your outcome.

When you fear success-
You willingly set yourself up for failure.

When you fear fear-
You become blind to the obvious warning signs.
