    That Quora question could have been written by me! I want things so bad, but always find myself avoiding it. I’m just as scared of success as I am of failure! But it looks like you’re on the Nice List overall, so well done for that. I think I deserve to join you on that list too!

    1. People don’t always realize that success can be scary. It can be life altering, and not always in the way we hope.
      Welcome to the Nice List!
