    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...

    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.

    Failure

    Am I wrong... or isn't everyone always afraid at failure? No one wants to suffer humiliation or fail at what they do.
