Fear and Mischief

“Sometimes you lose a battle. But mischief always wins the war” –John Green

Even as a young child I was mischievous, whether I was prank calling the entire P.T.A  or spying in on my parents conversations, I was constantly getting in trouble and still am. I’ve found that being reckless and mischievous comes with its own problems and countless amounts of lost battles.

I used to be afraid that fear ruled my life. As if I was avoiding doing things I wanted to but was too afraid, so one day I told myself no more being afraid or scared. I will do what I want when I want. I’ve come to the conclusion this thought and or decision was a bad one. After making a handful or two handfuls of terrible decisions such as stealing my mom’s car at 3am to go see a really cute boy even though I had never before been behind a steering wheel, I decided this; fear is scary, scary is not always bad. We fear things for a reason; we fear spiders because they bite and hurt and could kill. We fear death because it ends us. Your fears are there for a reason do not starve them, because they will bite harder than a spider and ultimately become your demise.
