The choice is yours! Like, for real . . .
From personal experience, when you face your fears you're less likely to feel regret and for me, there is nothing worse that regret . . . regret a missed opportunity, regret not saying you're sorry, regret not believing in yourself, regret not telling him you love him . . . regret not asking for what you want because you're scared of a"no".
Fear kills mores dreams than failure ever will!
