I've realized the older I become, the more cautious I am. I have grown fears, but I wonder if that's a bad thing. I mean, shouldn't it be the other way around? That I should be afraid of what I don't know, rather than embracing it? Is it because I know more information about the world than I did back then? Is it because danger has increased and there are more things to be concerned about? Is it because I'm more aware of the outcome of failure (on my part, or theirs)? Or is it the lack of trust I see in people (noting the bad instead of the good)?
Fear is instinct. Does it drive you, or drive you away?
