The Risk of A Safe Life

My husband forwarded this to me recently (with my improvements):

To laugh is to risk appearing a fool

To weep is to risk appearing sentimental

To reach out to another is to risk involvement

To share feelings is to risk exposing your true self

To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk ridicule

To love is to risk rejection

To hope is to risk disapointment

To try is to risk to failure

But risks must be taken because the greatest loss in life is to risk nothing

The person who risks nothing…does nothing, has nothing, is nothing

He may avoid suffering and sorrow

Shutting his heart off with fear and indifference

But he cannot learn, feel, change, grow, or live

Chained by his fear, he is a slave who has forfeited all freedom

Only a person who risks is truly free to live
