It’s funny how people look at me on the outside and think I’m the most fearless person they’ve met just because I look brave and strong and don’t take rubbish from anybody.
Whenever there is a group session at work, the club or the gym, they always want me to take charge and be the fearless leader they think I am.
But that isn’t true, I’m not fearless, I have never been. Of course, I’m brave and I’m not scared to take risks, but I am very far from fearless.
What I am most scared of, is love. Letting someone into your life completely terrifies me. I know it’s something I have craved for a long time but it is also what I’m most scared of.
I know its pathetic, but thankfully the girls don’t know that none of them can see through my bold façade but I know someday one will.
