Could one, especially a shy and timid person, achieve much in the world without some kind of adrenaline addiction? Dostoyevsky, for example, was addicted to gambling and maybe it helped him to take more risks with his writing which eventually paid off? Being a daredevil could also be lethal, but it is a condition glorified by many humans, unlike say, hoarding or depression.

I kind of morn the loss of my wild side. My mum says when I was 5 and went to the sea for the first time, I was throwing myself into big waves with delight. When I still was very young I remember going to the woods alone and climbing up the tallest tree I could find on one occasion, then pulling lots of nettles with bare hands on another. Just because I wanted to prove to myself I can do it. But afterwards I became mostly tame, settled down. Maybe that’s my problem?
