  1. Drew:

    Fear of people I suppose. I used to be great at walking up to a stranger and pulling a full blown conversation out of my butt, though now I can make small talk and maybe a bit more. I’ve got to get that back.

    Sounds like a new project!

  2. Lisa:

    The fear of confrontation, my fear of other people thinking my thoughts are useless or wrong. Instead of trying to resolve the problems that I see, I would rather ignore the issue at hand and deal with the side problems which are created. It takes more time and effort, but hurts less than being told that my opinions mean nothing.

  3. Blink:

    Fear of confrontation and being ostracised or ridiculed. Attempting to get over it though. The only thing other people have are opinions, and they shouldn’t scare me

  4. dada:

    Sometimes the pain you know, is more appealing than the pain you do not.

  11. GBJoker:

    Not being able to hear her when she talks to me for the first time, and not being able to feel her in my nerve damaged right side when she wants to touch me.

  12. Socks:

    My sister is depressed. When I leave for college, she will be only eleven years old, and entering middle school. I’m afraid that when she gets there, she’ll have trouble and then she won’t have me to talk to her and then– and then– and then– Jesus… I’m afraid the depression will get worse. And I’m afraid she could hurt or kill herself.
