Do one thing every day that scares you.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Fear was designed to protect us.

It can prevent us from putting ourselves in dangerous situations.

But fear can also be irrational.

Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13.

I’ve never had my life threatened by the number 13, or any other number for that matter.

This fear doesn’t seem to have much utility.
