If fear was a superhero…

If fear was a superhero its power would be to paralyse and he would be able to become more powerful by feeding off all our fears. It’s easy to call someone brave or be inspired because we doing it from behind our comfort zones. We can live vicariously through others and we can distance ourselves when they fail and silently be thankful that we didn’t take any risks, but this would be living half a life. I was listening to a song called Fear by Jazmine Sullivan (lyrics below) and it made me think how we allow fear to hold us back. It may be a normal human emotion but it is meant to fuel and propel us to greatness.

“Fear”

I’m scared to try cause I’m scared to fail
I’m scared to die cause I’m scared of hell
I’m scared to kiss scared to hug
I’m scared of sex cause I’m scared to touch
I’m scared to look cause I’m scared to see
I’m scared of you cause I’m scared of me
I’m scared to fly cause I’m scared to crash
I’m scared to move on so I live in the past
I’m scared to fight cause I’m scared to bleed
 I’m scared of love cause I’m scared he’ll leave
I’m scared of drugs I’m scared to drink
I’m scared to swim cause I’m scared to sink
I’m scared to learn cause I’m scared of truth
 Don’t wanna gain weight cause I’m scared of food
I’m scared to think that the label dropped me
I’m scared to think of my album flopping
This may sound silly but it’s true
So don’t pretend it ain’t you too
We all afraid of something here
Cause you ain’t human without fear
I’m scared to start cause I’m scared I’ll quit
I’m scared that people won’t like my shit
I’m scared of fame and paparazzi
Rumors starting and people watching
Scared to grow up cause I’m scared to get old
Scared of the dark and being alone
I’m scared of war I’m scared of jail
Scared to share a secret cause I’m scared you’ll tell
This may sound silly but it’s true
So don’t pretend it ain’t you too
We all afraid of something here
Cause you ain’t human without fear
