I Am Scared of Failing

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 236 People

    I have an opportunity

    for a new job, but am scared to death to accept it, because I am afraid I will fail. I'm afraid they will find out how inadequate I truly am. My current job is easy and secure, but I'm not happy there.
