Sometimes playing safe no longer remains the option. Sometimes it is but living on the edge. If one is not accustomed to it, this can be scary. If someone claims it isn’t, he or she is in a state of denial. This fear, however, can very easily be transformed into self-exploration adventure expedition, if confronted head-on.
I see it as leaving the warmth and comfort of a home and camping in the woods for the first time among scariest of the predators, darkness and fear playing at the max. You are always on alert, your defense mechanism triggers itself against the predators, listening to the faintest of sounds and reacting to the smallest of motions. Your sight sees nothing but darkness in the beginning, even when eyes get used to darkness, the visibility remains limited. But when sight partners with fear, it looks beyond limits, exploring further and deeper, analyzing everything and everyone that is or potentially can be a threat or an opportunity and that is when one learns how does it feel living on an edge.....and the adventure begins!
