It’s unlikely to happen, but…I think it might kill me.

I am deathly afraid of two things: falling to my death, and success that leads to fame. I know that might be confusing, but let me explain.

If you have been following my journey so far here on Medium, I have been attempting to blog every morning in order to better my life and mental health. Today’s prompt was…

Which of your fears do you think is least likely to come true?

Fear is an inherent part of the human experience, and it often manifests itself in various aspects of our lives. Each person’s fears are unique, deeply rooted in their personal history and circumstances. However, when it comes to facing our fears, we have the power to overcome them and grow as individuals. For me, these two are so deeply rooted in who I am, and it is my goal that over the next year I explore these more and more, and even attempt to challenge them as I move forward.
