I’m probably the least fearless person you’ll never meet. I am a complete and utter wimp. I don’t do roller coasters, I don’t fly, I don’t like heights, although I’m fine in really, really tall buildings as long as I don’t look out any windows, I don’t like super spicy foods (some heat is okay, but not a lot)….there’s probably a couple dozen more things I could add here, but it would start making me look pathetic, so I’ll cap it there. I am risk-averse. I don’t like doing things that either will embarrass me, make me look foolish, or will cause me some kind of mental or physical trauma. In the case of the really spicy food, I have a very temperamental stomach, and the less I poke it with a stick, the better off I am.
I wish I cared less about what other people think of me, and I also wish I didn’t have the crippling phobias that I do. I’d be happier.
