In a world where people are so desperate to be liked and accepted, we often tend not to take chances for fear of rejection or failure. We stay at jobs we don’t like because they are “safe”.
Stay with the same person for years not because they make us happy but because we’re comfortable and don’t want to be alone regardless of how unhappy we are.
We don’t approach people because we’re afraid they’ll reject or shame us for showing interest.
In the end, you will only regret what you didn’t do. The chances you didn’t take.
Ask yourself: at what point does the outcome outweigh the risk?
