In other words, you fear failure so much, that you would rather not try, and blame it on a lack of time. However, I have another way of looking at this. When you procrastinate from doing something, it is the same thing as quietly admitting to your self-conscious that you are a failure. If you think of it that way, considering that failure is one of life's greatest horrors; it is better to try, and learn from your experiences, than admit you have already become what it is you fear the most. It is never too late to change your life for the better!
"Over drinks at a bar my date revealed many interesting details about himself. He used to live on 'the streets.' He claimed to have 'beat Spina Bifida.' He had had a fiancé in Japan who was open to him dating women while he was in the States. After all those amazing revelations I let him know our relationship would not be romantic. As we walked out of the bar he appeared to be suffering from some sort of stomach cramp. He told me he suffered from severe IBS and desperately needed a private bathroom. I have family members who suffer from Crohn's disease so I felt very sympathetic to his situation. I offered to let him use the bathroom in my apartment. After he had finished using the bathroom, he says, 'I know you said we could just be friends and that's fine. But, I was wondering if I could just watch you pee before I leave. I only want to watch.' P.S. — I did not let him watch me pee." -Miranda, 33
