Question:

Breaking the habit
What's your most debilitating insecurity? Do you think you'll ever overcome it?


It's not really debilitating, but mine is...I'm not enough. I'm not doing enough, not participating enough, not sharing enough. That there's something I'm doing or not doing that is holding me back. My stories are never as good, my experiences are banal, my confidences shallow.

I guess that's it, but I refuse to throw myself into being an adrenaline junkie in response. I know myself - I'd burn out in a month if I did that. Instead, I carefully, gradually, and practically plan interesting things to do with fun people - and then I make sure that my first response to an invitation is always 'yes' rather than an instinctive 'no'.

This is the life that suits me just fine - and if I can't tell stories of fighting off wild beasts in the Amazon rainforest, or traversing across the desert with nomads, or helping build wells for AIDS sufferers in Africa, at least I have stories of the amazing and wonderful people that I am so, so lucky to know and love.
