The other day I passed by these people who were speaking Japanese. I wanted to join their conversation and practice but was too scared of embarrassment. I don't know why, I was never going to see them again. Even if I messed up there wouldn't have been any consequences. And if I did do well that would've been very cool and satisfying.

Why are we often scared to do things when there are no consequences for failing and the reward for success so high?
