I have little tolerance for people like me
Yes, I keep seeing triple L's out there. Triple Losers. Jesus. I'm one of them. Yes, I'm a recovering triple Loser. Not that I was abusive or convicted of a crime or even an alcoholic. It's just that the way I led my life was full of fear. I cringe at the thought of how I used to deal with people. Even now, sometimes, the shyness and fear can overwhelm me.
That is why when I see young folks or college folks who have much fear of a public's opinion on them, I cringe and remember myself. I want to take them aside and tell them to be a lion. To enjoy life to the fullest because tomorrow, they might be fertilizing daffodils.
Yes, fear holds us back. Get a big stick and beat it.
