Too Many Precautions

Psychologist Alfred Adler says one of the chief dangers you will face in life is taking too many precautions about your life. Hmmm. Living with too much caution, care and concern. Obviously, you need to have some. But TOO MANY is the problem.

How many precautions can you really take to protect yourself?
Or to assess whether a risk is worth it?
Or whether to dare to love when your heart has been broken?
Or to safeguard your children from failure, pain and rejection/
Or... Or... Or...

We are a cautious people.
We want to hedge our bets and protect our assets.
We don't want to risk too much, dare too much, dream too much.

We don't want to go too far outside the comfort zone.
We don't want to dance to close to the edge.
We don't want to disturb the status quo too much.
