Don’t Be Afraid?

My whole life I’ve been telling myself, “don’t be afraid” and it is only now that I’m realizing how stupid that is.
Don’t be afraid. It’s like saying, “don’t move out of the way when someone tries to punch you in the face” or “don’t flinch at the heat of a fire” or ” don’t blink.”
Don’t be human.
I’m afraid and your afraid and we’re always going to be afraid because that’s the point.
What I should be telling myself is, “be afraid but do it anyway.”
Live anyway!
