What Would You Do If You Weren’t Afraid?

I came across this question online the other day and it really got me thinking about how relevant it is for me. It stayed on my mind for a fair few days and then I thought to write a blog post about it. So, here you have it, a list of things that I would do if I wasn’t too scared!



This is definitely my number one. If I wasn’t a self conscious, unconfident, anxious, family centred individual I would just up and travel by myself but no, those reasons hold me back. I really, really want to see the world. I think travelling adds so much experience and so many memories that you will always be able to treasure but the scared me just won’t let it happen. Maybe when I’m a bit older I’ll be able to see the world in the form of holidays where I will always be returning home!


This is obviously a broad subject. As a broader subject, this would be titled exercise but although going to gym causes anxiety within me, I do get up and do it when I’m not being lazy. Running on the otherhand, I would love to just go out jogging regularly but I have fear of people staring / judging me so the way around this for me would be to run on an evening but then I worry because it’s dark and dark = scary! I have been jogging before with my sister so this isn’t as intense as others but I just wish I had the confidence to do it more as well as by myself!

Have a better social life

I honestly think my life socially would be so much stronger if I wasn’t so scared deep down. I’m too scared of being judged, too scared of being wrong, too scared of introductions, too scared of falling over. Too scared of too much. I don’t think I hold myself back on doing things with the friends I already have but any opportunity to meet new people or do things with new people/ people I’m not that close with, I just get really nervous and scared and then either don’t go or I have to bring people with me. I just wish I had the confidence to go out and do things by myself and have fun without the fear. Don’t get me wrong, I push myself a lot and I will do it sometimes and then once I’m comfortable I’m like what was all the fuss about? It’s the overthinking about how it could go that ruins it.

Have a much larger wardrobe

By this I mean, if I had no worries, there are so many more pieces I would have in my wardrobe. There are so many clothes I love but I just think to myself when will I wear it? And it’s not out of styling worries, it’s because I would be too scared to wear it because of what people would think. I know it’s fashion but I love fashion so this one really gets to me because I see people in the street who just don’t care and have very what I would call “out there” fashion and I envy them massively.

Publicize my blog

This is one that really gets me. I have had this blog since the end of 2014 but only really used it properly for the last half a year or so. I love writing, I love reading and I obviously love fashion and beauty so a blog is literally amazing to me – I just wish I had the confidence to publicise it fully to my social media. I am definitely getting there and do actually post it now but it just still really freaks me out.

Start a Youtube channel

Anybody who knows me will read this and be like what?! From the above section,  I think it’s obvious I really do not have the confidence to be on Youtube. I do think when it comes to the filming side of it, I would be OK- I actually think I’d absolutely love it but when it would come to uploading, I’d be absolutely petrified. It’s a shame really because I would love to have a vlogging channel because I love watching vlogs and I think it’s an amazing platform to look back on your life… but I just don’t see it happening… until I conquer fully publicising my blog at least!

That’s my answer to the quote. What would you do if you weren’t scared?

    You should forget about what people would say, and go for the vlogging! I’m sure it would be lovely. I would love to see them! I think I’m gonna make a post of my own for this, because this is such a great question to answer xxx

    I love this question because it really makes you think about all the things you may not realize you’re holding back on! I’m with you on the running thing, too. And yes, you should vlog!
