Achieving as an Underachiever
I made a list of what I am good at to help brainstorm the next steps in life. I came to realize I am really good at being an underachiever. I, unlike many, have no fear of failure. My fear lies in the likelihood of success. I find this true in my sporadic exercise routines, at work, and just at about every other aspect in the life. The exception is friendship. I am good at being a friend. If I only I could find a way to be a professional friend. My people skills do backfire when I am with a group of people (a group being 3 or more ) and my social anxiety kicks in. Unfortunately for me, my social anxiety is often misinterpreted for rude and inappropriate when really what one is witnessing is a public anxiety attack.
