What Are You Too Afraid To Do?

Recommended Posts

"Page not Found" for your link Mac, too bad I was kinda interested in what it could be.

I've always been a type X personality (some call it type A too) where I find dangerous things are exciting....scary still, but exciting.

I don't do stupid stuff tho, I carefully calculate whether it's within my physical and mental limits before I go for it.

Even at work we don't take stupid risks unless we know there's a life to be saved for sure. Any doubt and we have to measure the risks involved of possibly trying to save a dead person. Sorry but I won't kill myself going after someone who has most likely expired already, and we know full well what people can survive and what they can't in a fire situation.

When I was a preteen and teen, I was very self concious except for talking in front of others. I think most teens are, but as I grew up I lost all that and have become very extroverted. My X-wife was always jealous at how easily I could make new friends and just chat with folks I never met before. It's something you actually have to conciously decide to do if you're a bit self concious still, but just say....Screw it! I'm gonna talk to these folks about....whatever, just talk and they'll talk back usually. What's it going to hurt? Nothing...unless you call the big guy an ape that is, or try to take his girlfriend into the next room alone...;)

Seriously tho, being uncomfortable in social settings is quite normal for most folks, but it only takes a little confidence to start turning that around and soon you'll be the life of the party I'll bet! Occasionally, when you do make a fool outta yourself, just'll probably never see them again anyway.

Fears are there to give you a challenge to overcome them. Every time you fear something, you must charge and head butt it!

I guess if I had to pick something... I would be terrified of living in Texas...

Joking joking!

Here's a hug for your going through with the dancing!!! :wub: You did it and I am proud of you my young friend!!! You set out to conguer a fear and did it up in style!!! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Is that how I'm reading that?

(video highlights will be available at ;)

Hitest - I'm also scared of hieghts, but I've made 1846 jumps from perfectly good aircraft.

There is a huge difference between standing on the edge on top of a 15 story building, and hanging from the side of an airplane at 14,000' ASL.

Your mind does not recognize the usual objects at that hieght and therefore doesn't really register altitude, but on top of the building you see cars, people, dogs, mailboxes...and your mind goes nuts!

Plus it helps to have a good parachute strapped to the back, but even that doesn't help much at low altitudes...

Chappy..that is some insight!! I am afraid of being on a ladder or on a roof that is 10 ft high, but am not the least big anxious about flying and parasailed on Lake George...200 ft in the air, only a rope pulling me from a boat that I could barely see...I always wondered why with this fear, the higher I am, the less it bothers me...Thanks!!
