FEAR. As far back as I can remember, I have been afraid. Now, I know everybody is afraid at some time or another in their lives. It's normal, and even good, to experience some fear. But I have always seemed to take it a notch or 10 beyond normal, and I don't know why. Being afraid is so deeply ingrained, that it just feels like part of who I am.
