"Fear is a box we grow used to,
convince ourselves it's all the space we need,
that we like it's
 
smell
 
it's
 
color
 
it's
 
protection.
 
Comes a time to
stop hiding,
stop being afraid.
If we don't
 
break free
from our boxes, our spirits' shrink,
we shrink in every way imaginable.
[D]on't let
 
fear
 
especially someone else's fear
 
prevent you from
 
living your life.
I
promise
if you step out of that box,
you won't
fall
off
the
edge
of
the earth.
 
You'll fly."
