Get Over Yourself

by - 9/08/2014 01:54:00 AM

Sometimes I wish I had the guts to do everything I want to. It's pretty frustrating to want to do this and that and never ever get to finish one thing all because I'm afraid. I'm usually afraid of everyone watching me. (Please tell me you're like this too) But it's not like I'm doing a crime or anything illegal. I just can't get comfortable with all the people around me.

Standing in front of the class to read/ recite a poem feels like torture way back in gradeschool. I thought:

"Here it goes. They're all looking at me. I'm going to humiliate myself. Then they'll all laugh and make fun of me. Then my 'image/ reputation' will be destroyed. And they'll never look at me the same way again. And nobody's ever gonna take me seriously. And I'll die in shame."

That's me being so self-conscious in 4th grade.
If I could travel back in time, I would tell the 10-yr old me:

"Chill dude. Enjoy yourself. Don't mind what others think. Coz, trust me, they're not thinking about you. I'm a hundred percent sure most of them aren't even paying attention to whatever it is you're doing/ saying."

And if I could time travel more often, I'd always remind myself to... "GET OVER YOURSELF!"
You see, other peoples' lives don't revolve around you (unless you're the leader of a communist country). So please stop fidgeting because you think other people care if you mess up infront of the class! Most of them don't. Or if they do, they will eventually get over it. It's not gonna be the end of the world.

So basically, what I'm saying is DO YOUR THING. AND JUST ENJOY.
Nobody is going to do everything for you forever just coz you're afraid.

believe me or not, I'm just sayin'.
