I’m full of “what if”. I make the safe choice regularly. I make the “no choice” even more often. Fear plays a big part. It’s easy to listen to her. She swears the embarrassment that comes from failing is fatal. She lies but I believe her on some level and restrict my behaviour accordingly.
Yet, I’ve been embarrassed before and here I sit, not dead.
Enter the new plan. Do stuff. Use “oops” often.
