"Starr" Sharra Lehman


I am afraid of following through because I have never done so in the past. I am afraid of people having little or no faith in me because of my lack of faith in myself. I am afraid people won't care if I succeed because I don't feel important enough. I am afraid I can't finish what I have started because I hear doubt in my voice. I am afraid of all this change because I'm so set in my ways. I am afraid others will sabotage me because I worry about what everyone thinks of me. I am afraid I am too weak, but I am not weak at all. I'm strong and determined. I am afraid to ask for help for fear of getting rejected and forgotten. I am afraid I am doing something wrong because nothing seems right at the moment. I am afraid of not being in control of my own life. It makes me feel completely helpless. I am afraid I won't be able to let go of my past because of my fear of the future.
