Courage

I need to learn courage.
I want the confidence to be able to say “Hell Yeah, I want to do that!” and to commit to the action. All to often I find myself rejecting doing things because the easier way is to not do them, to stay at home and stay in my shell.
I am an introvert and it is hard for me to be open around strangers or even to really enjoy myself but I am trying to unlearn this. I have moved to a new town, new job, new house. This is the perfect time for me to get out and meet new people.
So far I have signed up for several meet up groups and gone to none. I have dozens of excuses for why I canceled but the main reason was that it was too hard.
How do you push past this?

  1. I don’t know about you, but I had to stop second guessing myself. As soon as I stopped worrying about what could happen and how things might turn out, I started to gain more confidence. Once I was no longer examining my every move, it became much easier to do things that I otherwise might not have. I also had a problem with how it would appear to others, before I realized I really didn’t care. Now I can dress up at the renaissance festival or as a superhero without fear.
