“…what are these barriers that keep people from reaching their potential? The answer to that can be found in another question, and that’s this: which is the most universal human characteristic – fear or laziness?”
– line from the movie ‘Waking Life’
It’s one thing for me to say that I want to be a writer, and a completely other thing to do the writing.
It is a completely other thing to allow human beings, those capable of critical judgment anyhow, to read the aforementioned writing. That may well be the end of me…
Doomed before I even truly begin. Potential wasted. Opinions repressed. Hopes and dreams suffocated beneath the weight of my insecurities.
