Life is too short to live within restraints.
I have read this somewhere while blog hopping thru my reader. Too bad, I am really not good in remembering things, and even if I did remember where I got this statement, this eight word statement is more than enough to leave me sleepless one scorching summer afternoon.
Now, I am looking at this Matryoshka doll and the first thing that I thought of is restraints. The bigger doll needs to be opened in order to get the smaller doll, until you get the smallest doll inside.
Sometimes, restraints affect us in ways that we will never see coming. Fears will make us more afraid, insecurities will make us ugly, and failures will always break us down. Problems will never leave us and no matter how hard we try to convince ourselves that we are strong, there will be points that we will be vulnerable.
Like this doll, you and the things that bother you will always be together. But it’s best to treat them like these nested dolls.
Make sure that your fears, insecurities, and failures will always be the smaller part of you. Never allow them to grow bigger, and if the moment come they did, just twist and open them into two for you to find the strength that was there all along.
