EN/   About Conscious and Braveness 

Over the years I realised that my courage to the adventures, changed a little its attitude. The maturity made me more conscious and aware of danger, a vision of possible variables that can make things go wrong, and not only wrong, being unsafe.

Always noticed that people who never had such an experience and are the optimistic type, are even somewhat naive when facing situations and end up running into something worse than imagined and discover they were not prepared for that.

The lack of knowledge about a subject that individual immune to fears and insecurities, perhaps braver and therefore happier, since there is nothing to worry about.

From the moment that you have an understanding of the problems around you, either about work, marriage, family or personal, is enough to prevent yourself, thinking and worry about them, beginning to develop ways to solve them. This would already cause some anxiety, but if the individual is not aware of these problems, or are not seeing them clearly, would never give proper attention until it comes to an extreme that reaches directly to then, forcing a reacting to it.

I always wonder: will be better to have the knowledge and prepare for it, which involves concern and anxiety, or to keep away from them and they just have an attitude when there is an explosion?
