Too much fear in everything I do.

Hi CS

I have too much fear in me over just about everything I do. I''m even scared of long distance driving as I fear the worst that could happen and picture a major car accident. I''m scared within the work place in everything I do, always scared to put myself through a challenge, scared to make phone calls. I know my potential as being a professional photographer and people know this but as soon as I am asked to do something I expect the worst. I can''t carry on like this. I''m missing out on great opportunities to really put myself out there. I''m such an introvert when it comes to something I need to do professionally. It''s hard for people to really get to know me. I''m so pathetic with this fear I have for living. I can''t carry on like this. I''m tired of putting up a front and giving myself this fake confidence just cos I have to. I''m in the wrong job and would like to pursue a career in photography but I''m scared. People tell me to do this professionally they have seen my work so what on earth is stopping me. I feel so stuck when I shouldn''t be. My life is good so to speak and I can do better. I know I can. It''s hard to be myself. I don''t even know myself either.

Sorry for the small typ o''s there. I just need to know that I can settle down anywhere I want to. I need to stop feeling inadequate and I am able to adjust to change.
