Well fear is your friend in some cases, and precaution your instinct to survive. So, sometimes what you're afraid of doing will save your ass. Especially, if the very thing that your afraid of brings you harm, and the people around you. Trust your gut.
If at the end of the day you can look at yourself in the mirror and look past the surface and into what matters most, deep inside you will know that you find more happiness in loving the beauty of your soul, not your body. Because your character speaks volumes more than merely what people see at first glance. -Jules
