Getting rid of your fear or avoiding it?
Some ppl are afraid of heights, the dark,.. or maybe even jumping off diving boards (etc). Do you think they should face their fear, or just avoid it? Honestly, I find that I’m too afraid to jump off diving boards that are over 1 story high. I’ve always felt that i could do anything and want to do crazy things. But when i got up to that diving board and looked down, I couldn’t make myself jump down. Should I keep trying? I’ve jumped off of that particular diving board before (longggg time ago tho), but only to end up doing a belly flop… which has made me avoid jumping off of diving boards for years.. but also the fact that i attempted to go off the diving board twice and only ended up walking down the stairs (in shame might i add) was an unpleasant feeling.
Shall I try again… knowing that i may end up dissapointed?
