The one time I felt fear the greatest was when my little brother fell off of a chair and his nose started to gush blood. I was only six or seven, and we used to have those chair that swiveled. My brother decided to stand on the chair and swivel, he fell off, landed right on his face and his nose started to gush blood. I saw my little brother crying and in pain, I started to cry myself because I was so scared something was going to happen to my little brother. I started to panic, pace back and forth, my face was hot and red from the tears, I started to ask my mom over and over again if he was going to be ok. Your chest starts to feel a little heavy too, you just get this weird feeling inside, and you realize there's not much you can do. Fear can affect what we see by making the fear seem more extreme than it is, all you can see is that one thing it's like nobody else is there. You can start to hear things that aren't being said, or if you're waiting for something(I was waiting of an ambulance to arrive) you could think that you're hearing it coming. The only way to master fear is by looking it straight in the face and saying I'm not afraid of you. You're he only one who can conquer your fear.

Ambition is an earnest desire for some type of achievement or distinction, as power, honor, fame, or wealth, and the willingness to strive for its attainment. For me crossing the line in being ambitious is killing or hurting things or people you care about, or just any person is crossing the line, to get what you want. There's a lot of things in life that I want right now, but I'd never kill someone to get it. Common ambitions in society are wanting to be someone famous, and wanting what someone else has. I think wanting what someone else has is the most common, we all get jealous, and we all want more. The thing is we all want these things, most of the things we want we don't need to have. The way society is though, if we don't have what everyone else has we're not "cool" or "popular", it's almost like were outcastes for an object or thing we don't even really need.
