Depending on the Situation…

So, May 7th’s Daily Post is called “Witness Protection“, when doing scary or stressful things, who would I want to be surrounded by? Friends or Strangers?

I, of course, have to be complicated. There are levels to this sh*t right here.

Now, if I am speaking publicly, I would rather be surrounded by friends. I hate reading things that I have written to people that I don’t know. With my friends around me I feel a little more supported and I feel better about speaking to a large group of people.

If I am doing something like bungee jumping or sky diving, it has to be strangers. Why? Because if I back out I won’t have to worry about my friends finding out I’m a scardey cat. Now, on the flip side, if my friends are there then I have to go through with it.

Now, what I say I would rather have and what has been available to me in these scary or stressful times, are two completely different things. Through bosses who have pushed me to be successful, and parents who know that I need to be independent, I have been forced to step outside of my comfort zones. I have done some of the scariest things in my life with strangers. I went to a middle school where I knew no one and in college I did the same thing. I had to be outgoing and I had to learn my way around. It’s made me comfortable enough to do scary or stressful things with friends or without.

Normally a stranger doesn’t stay a stranger very long, anyway. I have been told that I can make friends with a fire hydrant, so you know…it all depends on the situation.
