Every single person on Earth has something in their life that scares them. This is only natural because we are all human and feel emotions. But just because you are afraid of something doesn't mean you always will be. It is possible to work on what scares you and eventually it is very possible to conquer that fear whatever it is. It is very important to not let fear dictate how you live your life on a daily basis.
If you are scared of dying it is not ok to stay inside all day out of paranoia that you'll be killed when leaving your home. That just leads to a life of constantly living in fear and most likely depression. You should live your life to the fullest doing everything you can in your power to achieve your dreams.
Fear will always hold you back in life no matter what way you put it. That's why you have to work on the things that make you feel scared till they no longer do. Especially if that fear is stopping you from doing the things you love. That's why you should never be afraid to mess up. Making mistakes is a part of life and that's how you learn how to get better, if you are constantly backing out of things because you're scared you won't do good then you will never get better at it. If everyone stopped when they felt fear and uncomfortable then society as a whole would never progress technology would remain for the most part the same because nobody is willing to take a risk.
