“Sometimes I’m just scared. I’m beginning to realize that it’s okay.”

I just finished another semester of college and the first thought I had was, “I really need to get my life together.” It’s time to make plans and set goals.

What do I want to major in? Where do I see myself in the next 5 years? 10 years?

Amid making plans and setting goals, I’ve realized that there’s one thing standing in my way: fear. As much as I try to run away from it, a nagging thought follows every goal I set, “What if I can’t do it?”

I have to chase after my dreams, be confident, be strong. But sometimes I’m just scared. I’m beginning to realize that it’s okay.

BEING Young & Twenty means coping with fear and not allowing it to stop me.

Fear is real, but I can experience it and continue moving forward.

Fear is part of the journey. It doesn’t mean that we are any less strong.
