Pessimistic voice in the back of my head: "You wouldn't be able to do that. You're afraid of it."
Me: "So? I'm afraid of everything."
I'm starting to realize that I can be as uncontrolled by fear as someone who is completely fearless--if I'm afraid of talking to anyone I don't know, I might as well make a speech to a roomful of strangers; if I'm afraid of leaving my room, I might as well leave the country, etc.
Boy, that little thought I had this morning could be the start of something pretty cool.
