What are three (3) things you would do if you weren’t afraid?
I don’t think of myself as a terribly frightful person, but there are a few things that scare the ever-living crap out of me. I don’t enjoy heights, but I can manage with stuff like the Grand Canyon etc - but suspension bridges are a flat-out no for me. I had booked a zip line tour with a friend who was visiting back in September and I had to back out when we got there because I didn’t realize it included a ton of suspension bridges - and even hooked to a harness, I just couldn’t make myself do it. So I guess that’s one thing I’d definitely do if I wasn’t afraid - my two friends did the tour and said it was great fun, but even they admitted the bridge situation was a bit scary.
The same goes for hang gliding and/or skydiving. My siblings all used to go hang gliding in the summers when our family vacationed in NC, and it’s something that fascinates me - I wasn’t old enough (or big enough) to try it back then, but now I’m just plain scared. Same with skydiving - I’m sure it’s tremendous fun, but you’d have to knock me unconscious to get me out of a plane in mid-flight!
I don’t know what the third thing would be. For as anxious as I am, I’m pretty good at forcing myself into hard situations. Maybe shave my head? I’ve been curious about that for years, but just can’t bring myself to give it a go. (Also I’m afraid I would hate it, and then it would take ages to grow out, so that’s not completely irrational!)
