    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...

    So I've slept on my demons.

    I knew I'd be to much of a coward to do anything anyway. I mean, I've known for years now. I still feel that I don't deserve my life. Why am I looking for a way out when there are so many people praying for a second chance? It's selfish, then again, the pain makes me miserable...

    I Hate Risk-taking

    I know many people who take risks fail, but some who do succeed gain immense profits from their risk-taking. I wish I could be one of those people who have conviction in their goals and, without fear, just GO FOR IT. I want to do something and be something in life. I don't want...

    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...
