Every involvement in anything brings with it risk we won’t enjoy it, or that while we enjoy it something goes very wrong. Our easy alternative is to not get involved at all, like that turtle who never sticks his neck out – starves to death hiding out in its shell.
We won’t starve.
Yet we might be starved of things we need, needs we need met – for what we give/get with people. If we avoid ‘what could go wrong’, we miss the opportunity to participate in ‘what could go right’.
Far more things go right than go wrong, far more things are exciting than are dangerous – which is not to suggest we throw caution to the wind.
