cherish your solitude. take trains by yourself
to places you have never been. sleep out alone
under the stars. learn how to drive a stick shift.
go so far away that you stop being afraid of not
coming back. say no when you don't want to do
something. say yes if your instincts are strong, even 
if everyone around you disagrees. decide whether 
you want to be liked or admired. decide if fitting in
is more important than finding out what you're doing here.
believe in kissing.

I love this so much, especially "go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back." So perfect.The only way to get over fear is to do what you fear and prove to yourself you can survive it.

Oh I love this! You're so right. I love the line about learning a stick shift - for some reason after I learned that, I felt really capable in so many other areas.
