By Layala Rudy Fear can really hold you back from succeeding in life. So many things and opportunities come up every now and then and you just can’t accept them because of your fear of being judged by everyone else. When it comes to choosing a high school or a college someone might be so scared of making new friends and starting off in a new environment that they’ll hold themselves back from amazing opportunities. This is because of fear. You are scared of doing something different from everyone else. You don’t want to benefit yourself so you do what everyone else is doing. That’s what fear does to you. It may hold you back from the most amazing achievements and changes of your entire life.
