There are a lot of things to be afraid of in this world.
Hungry sharks trawling through the ocean everytime you swim at the beach.
That shady man with the hood who follows behind you when you go for a walk at night.
Even microscopic germs with the ability to kill you every time that you take a step outside.
But there is one thing that everyone is scared of
No matter how mighty and macho you are, this one thing can send shivers down anyone's spine.
Imagine giving someone all the little details about you. Your idiosyncrasies and flaws that you've never shared with anyone before.
With no certainty that they won't use that to hurt you.
No certainty that they will accept them.
No certainty that they will stay with you forever.
All this for the chance that they could maybe Love you back.
But what happens if they don't.
People say that you'll find the 'one'.
But you don't want the one.
You want them.
But they don't want you.
That's being Afraid.
