life is scary.
it's steps off the sidewalk, hoping you won't trip. car rides hoping you won't crash. french tests you're hoping you won't fail. blog posts you're hoping people won't hate.
but sometimes it's scarier when you don't step off the sidewalk, don't get in the car, don't take the french test, or don't post on your blog just for the fear that you might trip, crash, fail, or offend.
because really, when it comes down to it: you're sure to trip, crash, fail, or offend by definitely not taking the risk.
that's what really makes life scary.
