Life, to most of this world's occupants, is torture. It's an endless battle between yourself and an unknown force, and right when you thought you've won you're swept off your feet again. I feel like so many people have come to know this as the only way to live; so many people believe there is no other way. I say no to there being no other way. Why do I have to let myself be pushed around? Why can't I stand up for myself? There really isn't that much holding me back beside fear, and anyone can conquer fear. Sure you might think that statement is false, but you can, in fact, conquer your fears. Maybe me having so much faith in myself has something to do with my age. Maybe as I grow older I will fall into conformity like everyone else. I'd like to think I won't; I'd like to think I have the strength to support my beliefs. I don't know what will happen, though, I'm not a prophet or anything. So as I was saying I don't believe we, as humans, have to live life with that constant weight of fear on our back. There is a way for us to conquer this fear and live life actually alive.
