If you ask yourself, “What’s the worst that can happen?” you’ll realize how silly and irrational your answers are. If you answer honestly, the worst is not that bad. Maybe failure, rejection, slight discomfort but nothing you can’t survive or surpass. Then again those are all subjective, and the worst is really just ending up right back where you started but smarter, more aware, and hopefully with a few more interesting stories. So really, there is no worst. It’s all in your head. Do not sacrifice taking chances for comfort or uncertainty. There is so much to see/do/explore and you should do it, just because.
