    I Am a Snivelling Coward

    My cowardice is more than just isolated fears of certain situations or things, it transcends into every aspect of my life and being. When confronted with a problem or a difficult situation, rather than facing it head on and trying to resolve it, I will try to run away or avoid it...

    for myself and I think about killing myself from time to time. I know it's selfish to those who love me. I know I was lucky to have them in my life and to receive so much from them without giving back. But I feel helpless. I can't live up to any expectation, even the simplest...

    It's Not The Fear.

    I'm not ashamed of being afraid. Fear is a catalyst.  Motivation.  Fear pushes you toward a choice. I am a coward because of how I handle that fear.  I fear hurting people I love, so I lie.  If I were braver, I would be honest with them, disappoint them, and then go on to...
