"I don't aim to be perfect, but everything else matters.
I'm scared of rejection. I'm scared of loss. I'm scared of being replaced.
I'm scared that if I don't turn out to be who everyone expects me to be, I'd lose everyone.
Sounds like a pathetic plea for attention, but it's not.
This fear is real.
This fear is irrational, but you bet your ass it's real.
And it haunts me.
And I hate it.
It makes me feel so weak, but I can't run away from it."
