These are the voices which we hear in solitude, but they grow faint and inaudible as we enter into the world. Society everywhere is in conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am so afraid of failing...afraid of not being good enough...afraid of being alone. My fears protect me and keep me safe, but they also keep me from living. This week I learned a life unlived is worse than no life at all. It is time to step out of the shadows. I am still afraid, but I will deal with the what-ifs when I get there.
