Feeling Scared To Try New Things

The older I get, the more scared I am to try new things. I feel like I need to stay in my own lane. But I know I won’t grow if I don’t step outside my comfort zone.

I don’t always know what I want to do. I have to try new things before I can decide if it’s right for me.

I’m the type of person who has no problem seeking out new opportunities like applying for a job, internship, etc. But I don’t always follow through. Sometimes I have a valid reason. But other times I back down out of fear. Fear of failure. That I won’t be good enough.

I want to be more willing to try new things. I don’t want to let fear stop me from following through on opportunities that could change my life forever.

I should stop making assumptions or jumping to conclusions. After all, I won’t know whether I like something until I try it.

Oftentimes when I have to make a decision, I weigh the pros and cons. Unfortunately, it’s easier for me to think of disadvantages than advantages. Then again, there are positives I might not consider until I pursue something further.

It’s easy to play things safe. I might as well take a risk while I’m young though. I have very little to lose. If I find something isn’t right for me, that’s OK. If I fall in love with it, great. But I will never know unless I give myself a chance.

A Major Decision

I don’t know what I want my major to be. See what I did there?

How does one decide?

How can you pick just one major?

I’m only worrying about this right now because I have nothing else to worry about. Well, nothing major to worry about.

Except for the fact that there’s snow on the ground in April. It’s spring.

Canada is a weird country, sometimes.

Decision-Making Advice

When making decisions, pick the one you won’t regret.

Or the one you’ll have the least regrets.

Actually, don’t listen to me. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m the worst at making any sort of decision by myself.

So you could say I should learn to take my own advice before doling it out.

A Life Decision

I have come to the decision that I want to spend the rest of my life reading, writing, blogging, editing, revising, etc. I don’t want to just pursue writing as a hobby or for fun. I’m serious about it. So serious in fact that I want to study writing and English in post-secondary. Serious enough to go after a career in this industry.

You think I’m crazy, right? Crazy enough to follow my dreams, to listen to my heart, to do something I love?

Then yes, I am crazy.
