Living in the ‘SHADOWS’


“Anxiety (also called angst or worry is a psychological and physiological state characterized by somatic, emotional, cognitive and behavioral components. It is the displeasing feeling of fear and concern. The root meaning of the word anxiety is ‘to vex or trouble’; in either presence or absence of psychological stress, anxiety can create feelings of fear, worry, uneasiness, and dread. It is also associated with feelings of restlessness, fatigue, concentration problems, and muscle tension.”

The fear of making mistakes,  the fear of failing, the fear of not performing, fear of making a fool of yourself and/or fear of not reaching a goal are all reasons to start feeling anxious…

We are all familiar with those shadows… Those shadows which prevent us from living bravely.

We are creating our own boundries around us which keep us away from feeling real too. We keep our emotions as secret as we keep our thoughts. We may also loose our self-confidence and our motivation through actions.

Anxiety can be seen in many moment in our life such as work, school and even in our love affairs which we should not be afraid to taste.

But why?

All these worries fears and pain aren’t worth living; because we don’t have so much time to waste.

We should be free to act and to decide with no shackles.

If you feel that is real for you just do it: you can’t make a mistake on your feelings.

If you believe in yourself, you will see that you will not fail. It can take time to improve, but it won’t be a waste of time trying harder. This will be just an experiment.

You are not fool, so you just can’t making  fool of yourself at the end; you can simply call it ‘experience’.

And finally, the idea of reaching  a goal means a long way of concentration and hard working so the failure in any goal can be acceptable.




We are all created with a unique soul and an infinite capacity of imagination…

But while we grow up, we loose our uniqueness by social interactions and boundries. Each day we face with the assimilation and we desperately become just a person waiting in a line.

Questioning becomes just a memory of our childhood.

Dreaming is replaced by our ‘goals’.

The system eliminates our inner curiosity and blocks our desires underneath our voices.

We desperately become one of “us”.

We defend our community and our social rules and regulations; we fight against “others”…

This “us’ issue force us to stay in our social roles which means also ‘living in our boxes’.

We forget about our individuality.

And our God-given diversity can not resist to ‘our’ uniformity.

Creativity is not related to our education or family; but generally it becomes something ‘allowed’ by them.

Who gives the permission to think or to imagine? Isn’t it our real characteristic to be human?

Remember that in one perspective, we are “social animals” and we are able to configure our world by our dreams and wishes.

Those dreams that we are forced to forget…

Remember, that we do not have to be classified as poets or artists.

Do you ever remember what was the meaning of the sky when we were children?

Not the clouds or the sun.

But our mental picturings in the sky which the most common ones were sheeps 🙂

Take back your sheeps and let them fly again…
