When I was in the Amalfi Coast in Italy, my friends and I wandered to a deserted beach. With the clear blue water in front of us and the rocky cliffs around us, the idea of cliff jumping easily came to mind. After a bit of time had passed, the most adventurous in our group spotted the path to the top of the cliff walls. Before I realized what I was doing, I found myself climbing up the ledge following the other few who dared to venture to the top. As an incredibly fearful person who doesn’t like heights, peer pressure was a big motivating factor. We all started at the bottom and worked our way up.
I could feel fear taking over and the adrenaline pumping through my veins.
