#4 – What are you afraid of?
My biggest fear is failure. Right behind it would be falling.
I always put a lot of pressure on myself to do everything perfectly and when I’m not able to, it is very upsetting. I’ve been trying to be better about it and just try my best, but I’ve found myself retreating from things that I don’t think I’ll do well just so I won’t fail. That’s not really any way to enjoy life, but I’m working on it.
Falling has always been a huge fear of mine as well. People would say I’m afraid of heights, but I really don’t think it is that. If I’m up in a skyscraper, I can look down, out, etc and not have an issue, if I’m enclosed and safe. If you have me climb a cargo net in an OCR, that’s a different story. I’m not roped in, enclosed, not safe…so I feel terrified climbing it.
Share with me what some of you are afraid of.
