    Very hard question. Freer in a way that did not impact safety, but that is very hard

    "a fear of failure is the worst fear of all"

    can't remember where I read this but it's the best thing - never let the prospect of failure prevent you from trying to succeed :cute:

    I feel like it applies well to the question, as we can never truly succeed without danger showing its face, and we have to not be fearful of it.
