Personal demons
You would think, having had a revelation that ALL of the worst things that have happened to me have spawned from actions that I either took or refused to take because of fear, that I would get the message

I'm going to start asking for things. Every one will represent a need I have that conflicts with the needs of another.

Try to look at the things you did even though you initially feared them. The classes at the studio are a great example.

Just thinking about how great that turned out could be heartening when you are stalled by the fear.

Hell, going to the first beer events at Klae's are another. I barely knew him, figured I be in a room with other people I didn't know, and hoped I wouldn't feel so uncomfortable that I needed to leave. It stretched me, opened me up.

Now I miss him, the left coast mook...

Still have some troubles negotiating the studio, but it's in my blood now. I want it like I want sex. ;)

Is this your friends' link, by chance?

Good. You *should* ask for things that you want/need.

Every one will represent a need I have that conflicts with the needs of another.

Unfortunately, that's often the way of things. But, there's also the chance that the need you expect to conflict with will turn out to be something that really isn't that important to the other person, or expressing your need will help to kick-start the other person to meet more of their own needs, or the other person could surprise you outright and go with what you need in spite of it conflicting with their need because you are that important to them. Human relationships are so unpredictable, it's impossible to say how any situation will actually turn out. I wish you good luck in your endeavors and the strength to carry them through.
