These 2 things in your post really stood out for me, If your scared to get into a pot with possibly the best hand then poker may not be the game for you.
As for the 2nd bit I bolded
, you should never think that you have to go all in, there is always the option to fold, you should only go all in if you know you have the nuts or if you are a good favorite to win the pot, as with all poker related questions this reply falls into the category of "it depends" and it depends on a lot of things, your image, your opponents image, fold equity and so on and so on, but never feel that you "have to" go all in.
