Here’s the answer
A few months back I bought two parakeets for my son. One is blue and the other is yellow. They are such beautiful birds.
But I noticed they are always afraid. I clean their cage and change their food/water about 3 times a week. My son and I sing to them daily. But when we attempted to have the birds perch from our finger they would frantically fly in their cage as if being chased by a dangerous predator.
We have even left their cage opened in one of our rooms so they could fly out and stretch their wings but the cute parakeets just choose to stay perched where they know it’s safe.
We then place their favorite treat outside the cage door as an incentive for them to come out of the cage. The parakeets don’t budge they sit there scared as ever failing to enjoy more freedom and fun due to fear.
The scary thing is we are the same way. Instead of creating a life for ourselves and getting out of our cages we sit in our comfort zones.
Thinking all the while that that is the safe place. Failing to realize that time passes by and we don’t live forever. Continuing to sit there only makes us more stuck. All because we’re afraid of what’s out there.
We should never live in the fear of what could happen or we end making nothing happen.
