“It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth. You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.”—Procrastination Is Not Laziness | Thought Catalog (via the-perks-of-being-a-cauliflower)
I think the most important thing to do in life is to be uncomfortable. Because that’s where you grow. Tell the beautiful stranger that you think he’s beautiful. Sing at the damn karaoke bar. Pick dare over truth. Run a stop sign at 2 a.m. and see what happens. Cry in the movie theater. Steal a kiss, and throw it in your pocket.
