What do I do?
Should I hold to my values and accept the possibility of pain?
Or should I try this new thing that goes against my ideals?
I've chosen to stand by my values
I've accepted the possibility of pain. Pain itself is never frightening, only the fear of pain, the idea of pain.
I may have to stand for my decision and show what kind of a person I am.
I'm scared but I will stand tall and face whatever pain comes head on.
