If she fell, she would see how painless it is.
Writers need to fall too.
Sometimes we need to write that story just to get our ideas down and start over. It's not nearly as painful as you expect. Sometimes we need rejection letters to really find our best work.
The beautiful thing about being down is that you don't need to be afraid of falling. You know exactly how it feels. The only thing left to fear is success!
I'm happy to report that my daughter has fallen off the balance beam. Now she is more confident on it. Sometimes it is good to fall down.
