I'm afraid of a lot of things. Mostly I'm afraid of not being enough. I'm afraid my ideas are dumb, and if people hear them they'll think I'm dumb. I'm afraid of what people I admire think of me. I'm afraid of sharing my opinions. I'm afraid of not realizing my potential and of falling short. These things terrify me, and it's hard to create when you feel so scared.
It's taking time, and I feel a lot more comfortable creating here than I did a year ago when I first started, but I'm still so easily intimidated. I'm petrified that I'm not doing enough, that I am not enough. It takes a lot to step out of my fears and sort out the truth of my situation from my perception of it.
It's taking time, but I'm finding hints of freedom.
