Today, I celebrate the birth of my best friend, Liz. 

Liz is more than just my friend.

I have fears

Like actual fears

Fears regarding the sound of my own voice

Fears of allowing myself to be loved by someone 

Fears of failure

Because of fear, I have fear

Fear is safe

Fear is comfortable 

Fear is familia...
