Don’t ask for safety. Ask for adventure. To do so means you’ll travel the lesser known path. You’ve may have heard to take risks when you are young. I’d argue to take risks whenever. It’s never too late to travel the unknown path.
If for some reason it becomes catastrophic. Well. There’s always the known path. The tried and true. You can ALWAYS go back to that path if you don’t like the unknown. But at least try some adventure first instead of shirking it.
