In this moment i remember a phrase that say "the danger is real, but fear is a choise". In this site i see much shyness to exchange emotion directly on Skype, i think for fear. This happen to me also, in fact i try to be free from the shyness :). But, i see this bad behavior in many person in this site. I think this "social" network become a jail where we think that we are so bad, where matter the appearance, but i think different. :).
I think there is some truth to what you write Federico.
Fearless living, thinking, and acting can be a discipline that is acquired, but it takes great courage to live, think, and act without fear of the conseequnce.
