I’m continuing on my quest to understand risk, and specifically risk when it comes to dating and relationships. I have no problem risking my life flying 14 hours on Egypt Air or Air China (if you flew these airlines you’d understand the risk), but when it comes to personal, one-on-one, I think I might like you kind of risk, I fade into obscurity and the shy 4 year-old girl that was too scared to walk alone down the aisle as a flower girl in my uncle’s wedding comes out. I choose to hide behind fear.
Right now, I have no answers, I’m just exploring. But I found the following quote helpful in my journey:
“To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.”
