A Rational Fear

Yesterday I labeled my fear of falling on the ice as an 'irrational one', and today I'm back to say that I've reconsidered and have decided that it is a completely rational fear for me. You see, when I'm on skates I feel completely out of my comfort zone and out of control. I feel as if I could fall at any moment. And below me is this hard cold ice that doesn't seem pleasant to fall on. Furthermore, I never learned to skate when I was a child and more adaptable and limber. So I've re-categorized it...it's a rational fear!

I'll still keep trying to learn, but IT IS A RATIONAL FEAR!

(There, (sigh), my feeler-heart feels so much better now:)
