Don’t be afraid to fail. Be afraid not to try.
Failure is not the worse thing that can happen to you.
Not trying and not knowing if you could have is worse.
Going through life wondering if you could have done that or what if I had done that is not a way to go about doing things. You are only going to create a lot of self doubt and this can lead to future set backs and even bigger failures. Your self esteem could drop.
Protect yourself from this and be brave. Go ahead and give it a try. If you fail, oh well. Try again or or move on to something else. As long as you have friends, family, and yourself you are not a failure.
