I love water.
But at the same time, I fear it.
Lakes, rivers, oceans are so beautiful sometimes it brings tears to my eyes and happiness to my heart.
But the moment it gets close to me and becomes real, I get scared.
I can’t go deeper than 4’9” in a pool. My body just locks up. It’s an automated reaction that I feel like I can’t control.
And it just sucks because I wish I could do so much more.
Surfing, diving, snorkeling, para sailing, water skiing…
But I can’t because fear controls my body.
