Choices to make or not make...

"MASTER of human destinies am I!
Fame, love, and fortune on my footsteps wait.
Cities and fields I walk; I penetrate
Deserts and seas remote, and passing by
Hovel and mart and palace—soon or late
I knock unbidden once at every gate!

"If sleeping, wake—if feasting, rise before
I turn away. It is the hour of fate,
And they who follow me reach every state
Mortals desire, and conquer every foe
Save death; but those who doubt or hesitate,
Condemned to failure, penury, and woe,
Seek me in vain and uselessly implore.
I answer not, and I return no more!"


~John James Ingalls. "Opportunity" 1833–1900

If I could isolate that part of my mind that is completely objective, deviod of emotions and any personal fears, I wouldn't be having this little internal conflict. But the part of me that says "Yes! Do it, you idiot!" also whispers "You're not good enough, you'll never be good enough, you'll just end up getting hurt and rejected".

Damn, I hate being so timid.

Yes, I know that anyone reading this will make no sense of it. There are times when I want to be alone with my thoughts, opinions, and when the making of decisions should be done entirely by me.

Don't disqualify yourself...others do that for you. Whatever it is, you're worth it, and you are good enough. *hug*
