Why it speaks to me: Sorry, Anna, not sure I agree with you on this one! I don't think your partner HAS to be your best friend, but they probably most likely are, right?

Why it speaks to me: I identified so much with this quote when I first read it. This describes pretty well how I feel too often in my own life. I'm afraid of speaking up, of joining a conversation, of having people take notice of me, because I'm nervous of how I will appear to them. I wish I had more courage!

Which of these is your favorite?
