“I think, you know, the fear was a barricade, yes. But even more so than that, not having an open conversation with my parents and saying, “I’m thinking of doing this” because I think they would have been supportive, I think they would say “Roll the dice, take a chance.” You know, my dad loves me, my parents love me, unconditionally. If you fail, we’re gonna come out and get you.”
