Terrified to Start

Hey! I am pretty much completely new to working out. I've always done it in small spurts. I've never had a very disciplined routine of it. That said, I did used to run track when I was a teenager and I took a weightlifting class too. I did enjoy those things, but as an adult I am extraordinarily lazy and bogged down mentally with life. I don't know how to start. 

 

I know being physically active will pretty much guarantee my quit is permanent. And so I obviously want to do that. But, when I put on my running clothes, I get so nervous to be seen at all that I turn back before I even open the door. I feel like my addiction KNOWS running will kill it, so it goes out of its way to stop me from doing something I enjoy. 

 

Does anyone else have any experience with something like this?
