What is your overdetermined behaviour?

Death. Even when I say the word to myself, I have a physically uncomfortable reaction, like spiders running down my back. Because of this, I often ask myself "am I doing enough in my life?" I want a big life. I want to see the world filled with new experiences and people. Learn as many skills as possible. Impact the largest number of people. Add beauty to the world through art and words.

How do I uncover this behaviour? I suppose death awaits us all, so in the end, I will have no other choice.

Rejection. I’m terrified of rejection, so I bend over backwards, often violating my own needs and boundaries. What would happen if I just be myself, that would be uncovering my confidence. Maybe someday I’ll take that risk.
