Disclaimer: This post may have a couple of misspells because I’m writing this quickly; On the way to work.
I am tired feeling like fear takes over my whole life; believe me, that isn’t an embellishment, that’s the truth. There are things that I’ve always wanted to do; for example: I’ve always wanted to travel to different countries, go up and talk to a stranger without all the weird anxiety taking over, making everything even more weird. Randomly go on trips with friends without worrying how people are going to view me because I’m a big black woman with a limp.
Many people may know or not know; but I judge myself on a minute to minute basis. I’m sure everyone judges themselves, but I sometime find so much wrong with me, that sometimes it’s hard to find what’s right. That’s why when I do something that is either excepted by others or is a big accomplishment because of my inability to stand out on my own; I praise myself for it. Because I know how hard it was for me to do said task.
I guess you can say I chose to write this post because I’m taking on another job today; aftercare. This will be the first time that I’ve been an overseer for regular ED children, and I’m kind of nervous about it because I’ve never been an authority figure, so this is really something new for me.
Question: Have you ever been afraid to do anything that life hands you?
If so what was it?
If so how did you overcome the fear?
Wish me luck
