I would never have typecasted myself as fearful – I am outgoing, adventurous and, by nature, down for whatever. Notwithstanding these qualities, I can also be extremely passive. I guess being acquiescent is like a gateway drug to being fearful. But what exactly am I afraid of? Having recently accepted that vulnerability nurtures growth and change, I am going to lay it all out on the table right here and now… I am fearful of feelings, especially dealing with them.

Among the many beautiful afternoons spent at my grandmother’s house while my parents were in the office, snack time remains my most favorite memory: a glass filled to the brim with fresh-squeezed orange juice. Dense, sweet, and simply perfect, she would bring it in to me during my afternoon study as I drowned in books and my big nerdy glasses. To this day, I have not found orange juice as good as hers.
