Many people stand at the edge of the cliff, peering over periodically, seeing the void and saying I just can't.  They stand there until all the fear drains away and along with it, all of the passion, fight, and drive.  As the fuel for the big leap tank drains into the ground around them, regret and apathy take its place.  Lamenting about what could have been.  We take for granted some of the most precious gifts we've been granted-healthy bodies, bright minds and first world privileges.  We have the time to dwell on whether or not to act because most of us aren't preoccupied with struggling to find food and shelter.  It breaks my heart to see brilliant beings paralyzed by fear.  You are scared because it matters.  Your life matters.  Your choices matter.  You know what really terrifies me?  One day bleeding into the next.  Heart numbing routine.  Not speaking up. Not stepping forward. 
You only become a diamond through withstanding pressure and friction. 
When we clear the debris of past pain, it creates a cleaner relationship with yourself, your experience of the world and those you connect with.  You have a chance to retell your story as the Victor, not the Victim.  You are still here, you are still strong, and you are wildly alive. 
Walk forward with your crown on, fully sovereign in your life.
