Is it important to do everything that scares you?

How do you know when not doing something will result in regret?

I can think of no shortage of things that I chose not to do, many times out of fear. The curious thing is that I don’t regret not doing most of those things.

Only a select few.

How do we know what we will regret?

Is there some other indicator that said scary things are actually worth doing? Or is simply experiencing fear enough?

Maybe when the thing we are scared of could lead us to something we want?

(I think the unspoken limit to the number of questions that it is socially acceptable to put into a Medium response is three. I fear criticism in breaking social norms, so just know that my onslaught of query is actually a byproduct of putting your advice about doing things that scare me into practice — and I’m not simply being hella obnoxious. 😂 💡 👍)

Mama, writer, lover, fighter — I wear my heart on my sleeve because my pants pockets are too small.
