Risks and exploration

How comfortable are you in taking risks?

I’m not very comfortable at all.  I don’t like change much.  I like things to stay the same, as much as possible.

How encouraged were you to explore new things in childhood?

I don’t remember much about my early childhood, but I remember not being able to go to friend’s houses very often.  I wasn’t able to go to the movies without my parents or go to the mall without them.  It was a struggle to get my mom to let me go to a haunted house with a friend and her mom in middle school.

I’m truly amazed that my parents let me go to France in high school.  Maybe it’s because it was part of a school thing.

I think this has affected me in adulthood.  Now I don’t often like trying new things and I have crippling anxiety about new things.  Many people think I’m courageous but that’s simply because I push past my anxiety to do some things I really want to do.
