We are all fucking pussies. No matter how much of a hard-ass we pretend to be. Sure we have all had moments of pure pansy and unadulterated heroism, but all in all, we are pussies. We all have our fears, those things that quiver us to our very soul. The key to all fears is to not allow it to conquer you. We know that this is not any ground breaking ideal or anything, but it holds sway. Can you ever appreciate how good a horror movie is without sitting down, screaming like a girl and enjoying the ride? Or can you ever know how fun a swim in the pond is without jumping in. Being overly cautious can hinder you from experiencing the best pieces of life. Precaution has its place, yet it is imperative to grasp life and go. So you can be a fucking pussy and still live. You must just step past your hang ups and try to confront such fear. You must embrace what frightens you and make your enemies share your dread. Just remember to step outside yourself and talk to that pretty girl or cognitively react when true fear or danger does rear its head. Sure we are fucking pussies, but we are also capable of great things.
