~ Moments that changed my Life ~

Not gonna lie. Plenty of situations happen to us, but there are only a few moments which you remember and carry throughout life.

Fear

Isnt it a very familiar feeling?  Fear. Fear predominated most of my actions, whether it be choosing a career or whether it be eating something.
