    What's the scariest thing you've ever done?

    What sort of 'scary' was it?  Scary as in daredevil stunts, or was it, "Oh I hope no one will find out what I did'  or 'If I get caught I could land in prison' kind of thing.  And if you have never done anything that is 'on the edge', have you worked out why you never did

    At least one of the scariest things I have ever done is when I got baptized. I did it in the Kingdome in Seattle, yes many years ago. It was in front of tens of thousands of people. Oh yeah, and I was in a bathing suit and towel at the time. Did I mention I get terrible stage fright??? Its a public speaking thing. Im sure the minister never even heard any of my answers... LOL. Yeah, so scary.

      Oh, I do feel for you amazmerizing.  I think that I too, would have been terrified.  But you did get through it.  I do hope you still think it was worthwhile for you.

      Oh yes of course! I was fine, just a little nervous and really focused until I looked up at the audience and saw how many people there actually were... OMGoodness... then I was floored. After that I just refused to look up... I treasure that day!

    The scariest thing I've ever done? It's actually the first time I confessed my feeling for someone that I hold really dear. She was, still, as heavenly as the day that I first met her, when I started to confess what I have been trying to release, on Facebook. I was just staring at the computer screen, fingers solidified, mind dumbstruck, heart screaming, but all of them were compressed into one damn, simple question: "should I do it"?.
      I did it. But because of her response to the damned message I sent, I rarely talked to her. "Well, at least she's far away from me", I thought and I was relieved that it ended.

      Hi Adel John, I think you are very brave.  I think we all know the feeling you describe, and regardless whether one is successful or not, it still shows you that you are brave.  Do not lose that.

    To Adel John,

    You wrote this :-  I was just staring at the computer screen, fingers solidified, mind dumbstruck, heart screaming, but all of them were compressed into one damn, simple question: "should I do it"?.

    If you can write like that Adel John, I certainly cannot teach you anything much.  You already know how to "paint a picture" for your readers.

    But as an older person who joined HubPages just one year ago, I would advise you to think about your goals; define them clearly, reflect upon them, perhaps prune them to 2-3 points and WRITE THEM DOWN.  Stick the paper on your bathroom mirror, or any private mirror so you can read them often. 

    Each time you read them, ask yourself "What have I done this week/day to get closer to my target?"

    Believe me, it is effective.

    Good Luck, and look forward to seeing your name in print often.

    I have not done anything I was terrified of. I find that I am able to embrace fear by understanding the task therefore something that completely "terrifies" me at first for example: abseiling or flying a plane, or confessing my undying affections for someone becomes something that I conquer once Iv worked through the anxieties associated with it. Is it possible to completely rationalize fear? I am afraid so, in my case.

      Isn't that fantastic.  Good on you Sharon-Rose Vice.  Maybe you could write an article about it.  Sounds like an interesting concept.  Thanks for responding too.
