I just wanna know guys if is it really difficult to admit to yourself that you are scared of something and that you are scared to do something that you want, something that you've been dreaming of even when you are still a kid. Even though you know that this something can do good for you.

It is ok to be scared. Pride prevents us from exploring new things. Or may be the thought of failing scares us. Just try it. You said that it is something that you have been dreaming of since you were still a kid. Why don't you try it then? Don't you think the right time has come?

shakirabijin, they say fear is man's greatest adversary-we all confront fear in the grand schemes we conceieve in life, it could be political, social or economic projects-but to show and admit that you are affraid, that you are scared that you cant therefore take risks beause you are scared will be your greatest undoing. It will bring you to your knees, detatch you from what you really want to get your hands on and ruin you and/or even kill you all together. I know of a man who simply gets scared when in the same room with a female. He sweats and even loses breathe-a true woman phobia-he is perfetly normal sexually, but this obseveable scare he gets into when with a woman has killed his generation-he cant marry, he cant have children because he shows and prostrates before fear!! It is not about accepting a scare, it is all about confronting a scare and never allowing any sare to have an upper hand even though the scare is real!
