Have you faced fears and overcome them?
I have a fear of being in groups of people that I don’t know. I moved back to San Antonio after being away for 5 years and it was like coming back to a new city where I knew no one. I am a rather shy person and have a difficult time making friends. So when I joined the senior center and the masjid, I knew no one. It was very difficult for me to go to these places where I knew not a soul and take part in activities. But i somehow managed to do it. I still have difficulties making friends but I have not let that stop me from going on trips with the senior center and going to classes. It has been good for me. I know that eventually I will make friends and have an even been time.
