Why are we afraid to fall?? 1

Why are we so afraid to fall?
Is it because we fear that we may fall so hard that we won’t be able to get back up?
Are mistakes really such a horrible thing to make?
I mean, we can learn from them…… right?
As a child we scraped our knees yet we were not ashamed. We  just got back up and carried on with our task.
As I think about it now, I wish I had as much courage as I did when I was younger. The fear of failure was not there at all. Instead, I always kept the mindset of “At least I tried”.
Just think about the things we could accomplish if we still had that mindset.
If we did not let fear hold us back
If we at least tried to go after what we truly wanted…..
Just a little food for thought
