    I've been putting off doing some things

    that I really should get started on, but I'm afraid that they won't work out the way I hope. One of the things isn't too big of a deal, it could just help me out financially. But the other is my life-long dream, and if I fail at that I don't know what I'd do.

    Fear can be so suffocating. I don't know how to get over this fear of failure. The worst thing for me is that I tend to interpret the weirdest, smallest things as a failure.

    I finally realize that fear was what was

    holding me back from living my life. It's preventing me from doing everything I want to do. I think it would be advantageous for me to just list my fears so that way I know what I'm dealing with. I'm afraid that I will never meet someone who loves me for my personality and is a...
