When you face off with

whatever you’re

afraid of,

hiding from,

keeping bottled up;

your main source

of hurt or pain,

you enter the arena.



The battle is not easily won,

and, many times,

you will find yourself beaten back,

bruised and broken.


Take courage,

for it is those who enter,

who take up the fight,

who face off with fear,

who battle their own darkness,

who have already won.

Keep fighting.
