I'm Terrified Of What Could Happen

I'm terrified of the "next step" in life...whatever it is. It's always something I can't seem to handle, something I'm not smart enough to deal with. I'm always hearing the voice in my head saying "don't bother trying something, because you know you won't be able to figure it out." I'm always getting pushed into situations I don't want to be in, and I'm too meek to stand up for myself in order to strive for what I want. So it's just easier to coast through life, avoiding risks, not taking chances, passing up opportunities, laying low and out of sight. Someone once told me that I was "taking the easy way out." My response was, "Yeah, I am. What's the problem?"

So what's the next step? Or are you talking in general? It's easier to stay simple and avoid interuptions in our lives but that makes life boring. Go out and grab the gusto. Enjoy life and accept the ups and downs. It ain't all that
