Jump or I’ll push you

That has been the story of my life. Life situations generally push me to do things, I hardly ever jump. Like when I came out to my family, it was a push not a jump. Like when I confronted my father after years of abuse, that too was a push and not a jump.

The reason most people are afraid to jump is because they are afraid to fall.
