Take a chance.
I know, it's such a lame advise you hear all the time, but it's only recently I realized that's what happened to me. I used to have such a shitty lonely life because I always said no to everything because I was afraid of people. The few times I said yes and went to parties I was uncomfortable and always ended up leaving early.
Then I was offered to be a guest at a convention and I was very close to turning that down too. Just the thought of either sitting at a table and nobody caring or too many people caring and flooding me was terrifying.
I ended up saying yes, and when I got there it turned out to be the second scenario.

No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all hea
IIPrzez następne tygodnie Lyn starała się jak najczęściej przychodzić do Mirandy. Tłumaczenie dzieła szło powoli, ale z każdą wizytą pojawiały się nowe, wypełnione słowami pergaminy. Prawdą było, że niektórych zwrotów, wersów, a nawet całych stron Lyn nie potrafiła przeczytać, ale obie dziewczyny nie zrażały się. Były zafascynowane tym, czego dowiadywały się z kart księgi.

- Hm? Masz jakiś problem?
- Tak, i to spory westchnęła Lyn. Kończyły już tłumaczenie pierwszego rozdziału. Praca szła im znakomicie, a Lyn coraz rzadziej zdarzało się zaglądać do słownika w poszukiwaniu nieznanego słowa. Widzisz, nie mam poję
