There is just a fine line... You just don't know when to cross it or even if you should cross it. One false move and it can end in total awkwardness. It's true, fear does overwhelm desire even though the end result can be 101% worth the effort. But it just comes down to that line, crossing it can lead to the end of everything. Ahh the dilemmas faced by us humans, it's just crazy sometimes.
Time to let fate take me... Sometimes having a strong internal of locus of control is just as useful as having none. Ponder on that people.
