afraid of being a nobody

"I'm not afraid to compete. It's just the opposite. Don't you see that? I'm afraid I will compete - that's what scares me. [...] Just because I'm so horribly conditioned to accept everybody else's values, [...] doesn't make it right. I'm ashamed of it. I'm sick of it. I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody."
- Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger
