When you do something scary or stressful — bungee jumping, public speaking, etc. — do you prefer to be surrounded by friends or by strangers? Why?
I want to get everything right. I put a lot of pressure on myself to get better at everything each day. As a result, almost everything I do can be very stressful. Luckily, I am surrounded by the most supportive and understanding people in the world- my friends, family, colleagues and students.
Whenever I do something scary or stressful, I want to be surrounded by the people I mentioned above. They make me feel calm by reassuring me. I know that they will still be with me even if I fail. Their presence and support mean the most to me. And for that, I thank them.
