To Try, or Not Try

Lately I’m afraid of opportunities. Reluctant, really, to put myself out there—again.


  1. “You never know unless you try.”
  2. “Third (fourth? fifth?) time’s a charm.”
  3. What could it hurt? (See Cons.)


  1. It could really, really hurt.

My problem is I get my hopes up. Sometimes I think I’m better off without thinking so much. I need to relax.

The thing about me, though, is that even with saying all this, even with being nervous, you know I’m going to do it. I always do. It’s inevitable. Do I just like the drama? Is anything worth trying for if there isn’t a chance of having your heart ripped out? (Note: Drama.)

To try, or not try?


It’s not really a question.
