Faces of Love (207)

Afraid of Living or Dying?

We all are flowers in the garden of this earth. Should we be afraid of Living or Dying?

We all have a reason for coming here and now. For how long? Who knows? Yet, we might know, like any flower, to enjoy and beautify the lives of those around us.

What is called a reason for living is also an excellent reason for dying.

― Albert Camus

Does your fear keep a thing away from you? Does your fear keep your death away from you? Death as Living is part of your life. Moreover,

“You start dying slowly
if you do not travel,
if you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.

You start dying slowly
When you kill your self-esteem;
When you do not let others help you.

You start dying slowly
If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking everyday on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colours
Or you do not speak to those you don’t know.

You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.

You start dying slowly
If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love,
If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you do not go after a dream,
If you do not allow yourself,
At least once in your lifetime,
To run away from sensible advice.”
― Martha Medeiros

Are you afraid of Living or Dying?

It’s not dying I’m afraid of. It’s dying without ever having lived that I’m afraid of.
