She doubts herself and how good she may be. But why? Why consider herself less that she truly is? Why is she always so scared to plant her kiss? She wants to leave her mark but she’s scared to embark. She’s scared of failure, of losing it all, she’s scared of the rise but terrified of the fall. She lets the opportunities pass her left and right because she’s always scared to fight. She lies to everyone and herself, never knowing who to tell. She doesn’t know how to admit that what she fears is not a failure but rejection. She’s so worried about perfection that she won’t make any exemptions. The loss of the things she wants and constantly come back as taunts. She’s so focused on what others may think, that she’s almost become extinct.
