"I think, the truth is, you are afraid of losing Sally Michaels because you got nothing to hide behind and you have to stand on your own two feet." - Alex Fletcher, Music & Lyrics ---- I watched this movie more than a month ago and when I heard this line, I was like "whooooa!" It hit a soft spot in me! Bulls-Eye! I noticed that I lived in the shadow of my past (wheeee! This is also part of the lyrics of the movie's soundtrack. LOL). I tend to look back on the failures and mistakes I made. I'm afraid to make a step further and go an extra mile because of the "what-ifs". What if I fail again? What if the same mistake will happen? I can continue on living my bright perspectives, but I can't control the circumstances. What if fate will be against me? What if I'll not be able to get through? When I made the failure, I was scared to stand on my own again. I became so careful. I began to play things SAFE. I lose the part of me who was a risk-taker. I lose my self-confidence. But now, I realized that I never lose my self-confidence nor my sunny dispositions, I let them... slipped away. And now, it's time to go back and chase my dreams. :)
