I know I can be afraid of failure or asking in case of rejection. This makes absolutely no sense because I’m anything but shy, but in typical British fashion I don’t want to be seen to try if it doesn’t work out. I think it’s time that changed, to take risks to try and achieve something even if I end up totally embarrassed. Most of all, it’s time to stop running on little back streets and out of the way paths for fear of someone seeing me bright red and hacking up a lung. At least I’m doing more than they are.
