Anxiety is, in fact, a form of fear. Guilt, shame, embarrassment, dread, distrust, envy are related to fear, as well. Probably despair too.
- apathy/boredome(related to each other);
- hurt/grief/regret(all related to each other);
in that order.
Depending on my mood, those from above can change their position in the list, but fear is always present somewhere in the background and hope never gets to the top(seems reluctant in trading its last place).
Most important life-decisions I've made chasing around girls that I was into, hoping to run into them at some point. And the hope that one day I'll have someone to share my life with is what keeps me going and wanting to improve myself.
At the same time embarassment keeps me from trying new things slowing down the progress of improvement, but at the same time sometimes protecting me from doing things I'm going to regret.
