I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too!
Day 91: What personal prisons have you built out of fears? I would say the biggest has to do with being shy and afraid to reach out and try to make friends. I’ve kind of cut myself off from a lot of fun activities because I’m so introverted. I’m getting better at it though.
There’s also that terrible prison of “what if”. I can get paralyzed over decisions if I over-think them and imagine all the possible negative outcomes. I’m learning to stop over-analyzing fairly simple decisions and just go with it!
Oh, I know what you mean. I tend to over-analyze things as well but it does not help me at all. Now I just try to listen to my heart and act.
It’s so hard, isn’t it? And I think we women tend to overthink things more than men do, too, for some reason!
I’ve become more socially awkward these past few years and making new friends definitely seem more difficult considering I’ve been keeping to myself more. I guess I prefer to lay low.
I like to lay low too. I suppose most of the time it’s okay but I am trying to be better about socializing when I have to!
