this is the time where i just share.

so today, i'm going to be really real.

i'm stressed.

i think i've cried everyday for a week.

all of my stress is coming from this incredibly deep fear of failure.

where i once experienced a sense of confidence when it comes to school work. i am now living in fear of not finishing, fear of not being good enough, fear of failure.

i have put this one class...senior project...on such a high pedestal that i cannot seem to grasp it. i am living in fear that this class will be in my way of graduation.

i have had three nightmares where i have failed this class.

now this all might seem really silly. and i promise you, in a month, i will look back and realize just how ridiculous i am.

right now though, i am scared. i am living in fear.

living in this fear is crippling me. i cannot fully be myself. i just am a hollow shell.

i know that all will be so much better if i would just surrender all of this to God. i mean He commands us to do this.

if only i would heed the words that are in 1 john 4:18:
there is no fear in love.
but perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.
the one who fears is not made perfect in love.

i just want to stop being fearful.

i just need to let go of this fear

yet, i keep holding on
