On our training sessions, one of the first impressions that my classmates had about me was that I am fearless. I told them that I still have so many fears, but one thing that I’m not too afraid of is about grabbing opportunities.
In college, I have taken large leaps that I thought would bring me to far places, but it turned out that they weren’t for me. I realized that I desired those opportunities not really for growth but rather for the opportunity to be somewhere else.
But why did I pretend to seek growth when I just wanted to run away from my side of the fence? This is a question I answered in 2016, when I decided to just go home, and dwell at home. Real growth, I realized, is to elevate from our own reality, not to run away from it. It starts from where we are planted, and we just need to be fearless to let ourselves bloom.
