This is really hard for me to say, And may not mean very much to some people but i am so confused over it.
I am not the sort of person that likes to be pushed beyond my comfort zone.But some things i have to just push myself a little bit further but i cant im scared and then i start with the excuse's and the things i like to call the "what ifs" e.g what if theres a storm, What if i slip, What if i drown things like that.
I REALLY dont want to stop the things i love because i feel like im giving in. And i dont want to look that way. But i dont want to push myself to far to the exstent that i might hurt myself. The to things i love doing are horseriding and bodyboarding/surfing. I am not afraid of horses im not afraid of going as fast and i can or the horse mucking up,Im afraid of jumping and i cant stop thinking i am going to fall of and hurt myself, This has only started happening since i fell off really bad 4 years ago and i cant get out of it. And the body boarding and surfing i am scared of waves, My friends all go out there and have a good time but im to scared i cant stop! I dont know what to do!!! I love these things but cant stop worrying that something bad will happen....

I understnad how you feel,i am a avid snowboarder and about five years ago or so i feel really bad trying a new trick and broke my collar bone, and it sucked, hard.  and the first time i got back out there i was real tenitive, i was scared i was gonna hurt my self again, and for the first two years back i hardly went off any jumps because of my fear.  then three years after the sccident i started to get some confindece back but not much so i tried to clear a simple table top and cracked my head bad, got a mild concussion because of it...but it made me realize that if i go into this being scared and going half assed i am gonna hurt my self, but if i go at it 100% i might fall but chances are i wont get hurt as bad...so basically what i am saying is, just go for it put 100% effort into it, and you might fall, but it is all a part of getting over your fear, if you dont you will end up hurting yourself badly..so just give it your all thats all you can really do if you dont want to quit doing something you love...

Adding to what eor said:

Worrying about ANYTHING is a total waste of time. If you worry about getting hurt and you don't, then guess what? You wasted your time worrying. If you worry about getting hurt and you actually do (a self-fulfilling prophesy) then worrying about it didn't make it go away.

It is perfectly acceptable to be a little leery about doing some of the things you mentioned. I lived in SoCal as a very young teen, and caught a runaway long board in the back that kept me out of action for about a week or so. When I went back, I was a little nervous, and almost didn't go back. Then I realized that I was having a blast before the accident, and that the cool looking chick in the multi-colored bikini wouldn't give me a look if all I did was sit on the sand. So, I went in and realized that I was having fun. I still was on the look out for errant long boards, however, I was having fun again... BTW, that cool looking chick STILL didn't give me a look.
lol

Some people are like Slinkies . . . not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs...
