I'm 18 and I haven't don't a lot of the things most 18 year olds have done and I'm worried I never will. How do I get over my fear of forever being alone and a loser?
Ah, eighteen. A magical year full of change and promise. You stand at the beginning of a lifetime’s journey and in five years time practically none of the things which you now perceive as frightening and worrisome will seem so. Adventures await you. New friends found and, sadly, old ones lost. Life beckons you on. You will make mistakes and they will make you stronger. You will fall in love and have your heart broken. You will break the heart of another. You will be afraid at times. Yet, with your youthful vigor you will overcome your fear. You are clothed now in the mantle of youthful beauty and revel in it but know that it is a temporary thing and find something lasting build upon.
Your road is wide open, mine as a fifty-four year old narrows with every passing year. If I could go back and talk to my eighteen-year-old self I would say “stop wasting so much time worrying over trifles … be happy now!”
What have most eighteen-year-olds done? Gone to high school? Your life is just beginning. Don’t spend it worrying about such things.

❝ aish, i’m not a whiny baby! it doesn’t make me a baby to be anxious around groups of people, does it? so many people together makes me nervous. i get scared of being stuck in the crowd forever, or falling and being trampled over. i prefer being alone, nobody ever wants to be my friend anyway.
