This post is for anyone who has ever been too scared to go after something they loved, because they felt like they might not be good enough. Spoiler alert: I’m going to try to convince you that you’re freaking awesome, so just go for it.
I am going to start off by just being completely honest. Before coming to college, I was absolutely, 100% terrified. The summer leading up to move in day was filled with breakdowns and meltdowns and every single kind of down a human being can possibly have. While all of my friends probably felt some version of this too, most of their worries revolved around the fear of leaving their hometown and starting fresh somewhere new. But for me, it wasn’t so much the moving part that I was scared of. I grew up in a military family, so I’ve moved around quite a few times and I like to think I have the whole “starting over” thing down by now. I was scared, because for the first time ever I was taking the leap to go after something that I loved and my brain wouldn’t stop repeating the horrifying thought, “you’re not good enough”.
