They just seem to fly right on by.... 359 People

    Scary

    I'm sure i miss many opportunities. I am a home body and scared of the unknown. I couldn't just get up and go out into the world and do something crazy, travel on the spur of the moment or on my own. On the other hand if you give me a food that i haven't tried before I'll usually...

    Since I do not know day to day how I am going to feel I do lose a lot of opportunities.  Its hard for me to plan things outs and I have a bad tendency to talk myself out of opportunities because I do not want to let anyone down.

    I'm Afraid

    I miss out on so many different opportunities simply because I'm afraid. I'm afraid I'm not good enough for them, that when I go out and people see me for who I really am, that I just won't be good enough. That they'll turn me away and I'll be alone...again...like I am now...and...
