Kind words for someone afraid to try something new

It can be scary to make a big life change or try something new. We should all be open to experiencing new things, otherwise, we will live in a very small world, a prison of our own making. For someone people when they pass there won’t be much of a change, other than they stop breathing.

In the past, every time we tried something new it was scary at first, and then it became easier. Remember when you learned to walk you fell over, tripped but you got up and you just kept going. Imagine if you gave up when you were learning to walk, you would still be sitting around today.
