    Although I usually seem confident

    and as if I have my **** together to the general public, there is a large part of me that is just a scared little girl. Insecure and constantly doubting what I think I know about others and myself. I want so badly to look at the choices I have made and feel confident they were...

    *cowers*

    I'm scared of failing. I'm scared of success. I'm scared of being found out, of being hated, of being loved. I'm afraid to live and afraid to die. I am afraid that I'll say something stupid when I talk. I'm scared I will look completely wrong with a new hair cut or clothing style...

    . . . . I circle around

    and around this fear. I dive down to get a closer look at this scary thing. I zoom back up and continue checking this huge animated object from afar. I begin to get brave once again. I approach this thing that scares me so. I say a prayer, I put my armor of warrior attitude...

    It Still Hurts

    I've been hurt, deeply. So deeply that I am still trying to heal. I've been rebuilding my walls around my heart again, slowly... brick by brick. I don't want to open myself up again. It's better to not feel at all then to be hurt again....I'm safe that way. Then you appeared...

    The Fear Of The Release.

    I admit it, I'm scared of this reoccurring boil that comes up on my butt. Even though I've had it lanced twice, I'm still nervous of having to do it again and again. I just wish there was a way for me to just get used to the pain or maybe find a way to numb the pain, mentally.
