To me, being fearless doesn’t mean being without fear. I believe being fearless is taking on the things that scare you most. Being fearless means being unafraid and unapologetic about who you are. It means being brave enough to identify what you fear and facing it head on, even when your instincts tell you to run away.
Fearlessness is something that I believe should be admired, which is why I’m so excited to share my latest series with y’all: Fearless Friday! Every Friday, I’ll be sharing stories of brave people and how they’ve faced their fears.
Today, I’d like to introduce y’all to Jordyn from The Fairy Princess Diaries. Read her fearless story below!
Hello, my name is Jordyn & I run the blog The Fairy Princess Diaries. I’ve been blogging for almost 3 years now and my blog has definitely evolved over time. As someone who grew up never really fitting into a group or clique I started my blog as a space I could be 100% myself, 100% of the time. I write about identity development, my perceptions of fashion and even throw in some dating horror stories now and then. I can’t resist the allure of an open meadow, quiet coffee shop or any excuse to wear flowers in my hair.
What does being fearless mean to you?
To me being fearless means working through the portions of life that scare you to death. Being fearless means getting out of bed every morning and attempting to conquer your dragons.
Share a story where you had to overcome a fear.
I spent two years in an abusive relationship. For a long time I felt like every day a piece of me died. I had strayed so far from the person I wanted to be I felt like I could never go back to the happy, carefree girl I had been before. Leaving the relationship took bravery, but learning to accept love in a new relationship took fearlessness. I had to learn to trust my own decisions again.
Whose fearlessness do you admire and why?
I’ve always thought of people who can live their lives without being impacted by the opinions of others are fearless. To be unapologetically who you are and to stick to what you believe in despite outside influence is fearless to me.
What song makes you feel fearless?
Basically anything by Taylor Swift (including Fearless, hehe) but We Are Never Getting Back Together is my favorite fearless anthem.
