What They Don’t Tell You About Playing It Safe

If you’re somewhere you don’t want to be right now I want to encourage you to ask yourself why. Why have you allowed the situation to get this far? Why didn’t you put a stop to it before? Were you getting too comfortable? Were you scared of what would happen if you were to leave?

Pain in this life is unavoidable, but we can choose either the pain of regret or the pain of growth. Keep in mind that nothing hurts more than being somewhere you know you don’t belong. It’s time for you to check yourself on where your behaviour has got you so far and decide where you want to be.

Life is too long to do what you hate and too short to miss out on what you love. Start taking responsibility for how you want to feel — rather than making excuses for why you can’t have the life you dream of. The power to create that dream life rests with you — in how you choose to behave.

You might have your parents, friends or partner telling you to settle because it’s “safe” — would you rather play it safe than be happy? Where’s the safety in hating yourself for choosing to settle? There is no safety in this life because the only guarantee is death and it’s coming for all of us.

If you’re in a relationship you don’t want to be in right now — ask yourself why.

If you’re around people you don’t like right now — ask yourself why.

If you’re doing something you hate right now — ask yourself why.

Then ask yourself one final question — do you think you deserve better? If yes, start making some changes in your life and take back your power before it’s too late. You don’t want to wake up in 40 years and realise you’ve wasted your whole life “playing it safe”.

Life is about now, not what came before or what’s coming after — all that exists is in the present moment.

There is no such thing as tomorrow or yesterday, so live for today.

You’re not going to live forever — start taking action now.

Peace & positive vibes.
