I Find myself being afraid lately and I think its b/c I started playing some 50max. Perhaps I should move back down to 25max

I don't think it's too passive. With so many limpers in the hand pf there are a fair few hands out there and KQ could certainly be one of them. You did pick up the straight draw but you've controlled the pot size quite well and your opponent hasn't been too aggressive.

Other than preflop, you really didn'y play that passively. Your play overall was good. You were aggressive when you needed to be.

Same as above, but I think you could've raised the river, no doubt you'd've been called.

Nice play. Don't like the check in he big blind unless you have a reason to think you'be be up against a reraise (someone slowplaying a high pp for example). QJs is not a calling hand, it's a raising hand: with so many players in the hand, it's probable that someone can have Q,3 or Q,9 or even 3,9.

I also think its fine, you have TP with a weak kicker, you bet out on the flop and got a caller. The turn brought a card that could be considered dangerous and villain kept firing every time you checked. I really don't think going in check/call mode here can be considered wrong, actually I'd have probably done the same.

If you're rolled well enough I'd stick with the 50 MAX if I were you for now, stay there for a while and see how it goes. As long as BR allows you to, give yourself a certain (n)k of hands then evaluate, don't give up because you feel you're not playing right. I think its pretty normal that when you go up in level you're not comfortable in the beginning. Evaluate based on results, how much you're up or down.
