We all have something that terrifies us — anxieties, neuroses, rational or irrational fears. They may be major or minor; they may affect our lives on a daily basis or only show up to haunt us once in a while. And often, there comes a time when we have to confront what scares us, whether it's spiders or mortality, public speaking or public bathrooms.
For this Open Call, we're looking for tales of a time you faced your fear. Why were you afraid in the first place, and why did you decide to do something about it? Did you conquer that fear or only manage to exacerbate it?
Blog your response by Monday, March 8th at 3pm ET and tag your post facing fears.
