Top Ten Things that Hold Us Back from Being What We Want to Be

The Top Ten

1 Fear

"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." - FDR

Fear will always be No. 1...

We screwed up big time and we're afraid of doing so again

2 Laziness

Lol I should be working on mah homework right now, but I'm to LAZY! haha!

I need to work on my music.

I am guilty of this.

Too* you are even too lazy to work on your grammer.

3 Self Doubt

I have this a lot. It’s also a kind of fear.

4 Waiting for the Right Time

For some things, there's never a "right time" so just go for it.

5 Distractions

Internet hehe!

6 Overthinking

I overthink in general. Imagine this: Every killer, serial killer, mass murderer, pedophile, racist, nazi, terrorist, etc. that has ever been known has lived on the same rock/planet as you. That's weird. And also humans are made up of very dense and close tiny things called atoms meaning we are just very hard liquid forms. And we're living in a complex world yet we live without even realizing it.

The story of my life...

7 Ego
8 Comfort Zone

Falls into the Fear Zone. It's scary to step outside your personal comfort zone.

My theory is...When a person can put the rubber chicken on their head and lead the dance they have officially stepped out of their comfort zone.

9 Addictions

Paralysis!

10 Reality

The Newcomers

? Quarantine

True that. But I want to become an author when I grow up, so I guess quaranitine is helping me with that

? Age

The Contenders

11 School

I agree! My school tends to have everyone conform to one way of living.

12 Family

They discourage me the most in life

This is very true for me

13 Perfectionism

It takes away what you already have..

14 Pressure
15 Blame
16 Religion
17 Discouragement

Aka family

18 Rich People

But Elon is good ;-;

MUSK CAN GO TO HELL

19 Entitlement
20 Depression

Does that picture mean that life is crushing your head off?!

21 Parents

I love writing on Wattpad, but the problem is that I'm self conscious about it. So I hide my accounts from not just my parents, but my entire family, in fear that they might judge me for my interests. I can't tell them about me having Discord, Tumblr, Reddit, DeviantArt, Wattpad, and The Top Tens. I think it's for my own good, and it most likely is. I fear that if they find out about my secret life on the Internet, they may never see me the same way ever again, and not in a positive way.
