The only thing to fear?

Judgment.
Six-word story! :boogie:
A more cynical take on this one. This an issue I've been thinking about for quite a while now. Just think about it: how many times a day do we do or not do something simply for fear of judgment, even when we're not likely to be judged?

It's kind of scary if you think about it.

Comment with your opinion on this subject, if you would! :iconfingerdanceplz:

The reason we fear judgement so is because we constantly judge ourselves. We worry so much about what everyone around us will think because we already have these preconceived notions of what's "normal" and "acceptable" and "good".

The real judgement to fear is the one we cast upon ourselves.

We are all judgers! But that's okay and necessary sometimes. :shrug: We wouldn't want to end up with something to regret every day. It's just real important not to overdue it. :faint: Cus that's where the problems start.

I thought about it--you're right, more than we realize! We think we are making rational decisions, but in the end many of them are keyed to what others will think of us! And what sorts of things could we accomplish without that inhibition?
