Note to self

I’m so afraid of rejection– of all sorts. I’m sure I live in fear sometimes. However, here’s to speaking up. A former friend mentioned that I have social fears. It’s true. However, today, I spoke up and introduced myself to the two ED physicians, who both said ‘yes’ to me and taught me something new. Look at that. I also submitted the email to an author (who’s currently on my reading list and does econ & psych research). We’ll see, but seriously, the more I try, the luckier I get right? Wow, it’s funny (?) that this is what is considered “risky” to me. I really am a timid mouse sometimes. However that is about to change. Psychology says that identity is fluid. Whether or not that’s some social answer or idea, I think it’s a good one. In other words, what I do shapes who I become. Therefore, if I want to become more XYZ, then I should do more XYZ, and hence become more XYZ. AHHH…I’m so terrified for the this man’s response. I kind of. idolize him. Maybe I shouldn’t. Time will tell.
