Random Thoughts – my social fear
My big social fear is ridicule.
As much as I delight in sharing my opinion, I am pretty well ruled by that fear.
Looking foolish, stupid, incorrect.
It keeps me in check a lot of the time.
To reveal the workings of my mind and heart is to make myself vulnerable to ridicule.
Better to keep silent than to expose my tender shoots to the harsh elements of public scrutiny.
Blogging has made me face this fear in a big and very public way.
I still fear being called out, laughed at, or trampled on in some way.
I still super fear scorn, the poison on the tip of ridicule’s blade.
I still don’t let some of the me’s in me come out too much.
But I’m working on that.
Do you have a social fear?
