Seriously – if you are hesitant to do something you want to do, perhaps you should ask yourself why?
What exactly are you afraid of?
Maybe you should run the process through in your mind and try to imagine the consequences. Are they serious enough to warrant actual fear?
Or are you just afraid of exposing yourself, afraid of appearing vulnerable and weak? And what, I might ask, is wrong with that? Aren’t we all vulnerable and weak at times? Isn’t this just part of the human condition?
Is it that you are you afraid of looking foolish? Really?
Or maybe afraid that you suck at whatever it is you want to be good at? Well here’s a news flash – everybody sucks before they get good. It’s part of the process. Besides, as I’ve pointed out before, sucking at something is actually a good thing because it means you are still growing.
I guess my point here is this: if you want to do something and it scares you, maybe you are just being weak. You might even be depriving yourself and others of something meaningful, something unique to yourself.
Sometimes you just have to be brave, know that your intentions are pure and put your fear aside.
Just fucking do it.
