being left alone in deep water
having a shark creep up underneath me
failing spectacularly in front of a crowd
scathing criticism
being vulnerable in my writing
talking about my insecurities
having the ones I love leave me
water skiing
sea snakes
being attacked by a spider
lead climbing and having to fall a few feet if my grip slips
drinking out of a Capri Sun and finding mold at the bottom
