and if my heart should somehow stop,
i'll hang on to the hope that you're not too late.

Atychiphobia is the irrational fear of failure, also known as performance anxiety. An irrational fear of failure could have developed from either very demeaning parents or siblings who placed an unnaturally high stigma upon failure at a young age, or from a traumatic childhood event that resulted in serious embarrassment and humiliation, even from a minor failure. Some kinds of atychiphobia are related to social phobia or social anxiety disorder, in which case it is rooted in a fear of failing in the eyes of others. Atychiphobes generally gather a defeatist attitude out of fear of failing, making them avoid trying to achieve anything due to potentially failing at it. They may also subconsciously undermine or sabotage their own efforts to prevent having to continue to try.
