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

The Top Ten
1 Fear

I am guilty for most of these.

Fear will always be No. 1...

Many people think they will fail that's why they don't even try to win

2 Laziness Laziness

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

I need to work on my music.

I am guilty of this.

3 Self Doubt

Many people think they can't do this they can't fly they don't believe they have wings.

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 Overthinking

Bungee jumping helped to cure my overthinking habit. If you think too much about doing something, you'll talk yourself out of it. Seriously, just do it!

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...

6 Distractions

Playing flash games at school!

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
10 Family Family

At home I'm stuck between my insanely annoying, pesty younger sibling and my strict, high expectation parents who have a huge argument with each other every once in a while. The only life I have other than that is school. I can't bear it, and I can't wait till I'm older so I can have my own life.

I honestly don't feel comfortable with my family. My mom is salty and butthurt most of the time and my parents arguing is very annoying.

This is very true for me

The Contenders
11 Reality Reality
12 School School

I want to program.

School: Nope. We will barricade your way with homework and facts which have nothing to do with programming.

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

Homework is just to much, because I have to pray and I have 2 homework every day except Wednesday

13 Perfectionism

It takes away what you already have..

14 Blame
15 Ourselves
16 Pressure
17 Religion
18 Depression Depression

No. It is suffocating you. Then the skull eventually gets crushed to dust.

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

Is that picture symbolizing depression?

19 Discouragement

It can be from others, or even from yourself for that matter.

20 Rich People Rich People
21 Politics Politics
22 Age

I'm only 15, so I'm still too young to even get a job or my driver's licence until August 2022.

23 Quarantine

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

24 Procrastination Procrastination
25 Society

Unfortunately, most people become a casualty of it and end up being conformists.
