Scared of judgement

Tuesday, April 06, 2010      4 comments

I have realized in the last couple of days, that I am so afraid of being judged. The more I thought about it, the more I realized there is not an area in my life that I am not afraid of someone finding fault with me. I do not write status updat... Read more
