Why are we so scared of rejection? I see this pretty lady almost every day as I come and go from my flat but have this fear of talking to her because I am afraid she will reject me.
But if I say nothing then I know that it will haunt me and make me into a more bitter person because I know that my fears are stronger than me.
So I have to get the nerve to say something without sounding like a nervous fool. What do you suggest? Just go up and talk to her, right? The HVAC company where she works is located a couple doors from my flat and I see her sitting outside on the curb with her friend each day. I did get the nerve to say hi to her the other day and she responded with a cheerful hello and a big smile. Maybe I’ll go to the store and buy a HEPA filter or something for my HVAC system that I don’t really need. I guess I just overthink things too much and it leads to a type of paralysis in action. My mom calls it analysis paralysis when you think about something too much and allow it to conquer you. I’ll go to that HVAC company this week and talk to the pretty lady and see what happens. I guess I’ll just ask her if she wants to be friends and not beat around the bush. It’s exactly what I would have done when I was a five year old boy, so why is it so hard to do now?
