For most of my life, I've seemed to have this fear of being wrong. My mom would even make fun of me for it. "You always have to be right, don't you. You're just like your father." And in the rare occasions where the words "I was wrong" came out of my mouth, she would act all surprised and frantically looking for a pencil and paper to write down the date and time that I said I was wrong.
But now I'm thinking it's not about being wrong... it's about being guilty. I think my fear is that if I'm guilty of something (and usually guilt is only assigned for bad things), people won't like me. "So what?" Well, for me, that's a big deal. I don't think there's anyone in the world I truly hate. (Well, excluding people I don't even personally know, like serial killers and such.) And I guess I'm just not comfortable with the idea that someone might think I'm a bad person.

There's probably a harsh term for someone with a personality like mine. Go ahead, anybody, spit it out. :)
