I think the most important thing to do in life is to be uncomfortable. Because that’s where you grow. Tell the beautiful stranger that you think he’s beautiful. Sing at the damn karaoke bar. Pick dare over truth. Run a stop sign at 2 a.m. and see what happens. Cry in the movie theater. Steal a kiss, and throw it in your pocket.
And then run back home.
Avoiding people. I avoid people that I actually like. I suppose that’s a phobia, but it’s also a habit.
