Most of us have that one thing they strongly object to doing.

Any attempt at trying to convince a person to do something they are apprehensive about is futile because at the end of the day, we all have our kryptonite, and we will avoid confronting it at all costs.



Those who are brave enough to take a leap may come out on the other side a champion. And good for them.

But a majority of non-risk-takers are perfectly fine with perpetuating their comfortable existence without enlightenment that may never come.

Curious to hear from strangers online, Redditor alskjdhf asked:

"What will you never do, not even once?"

When it comes to sharing a life with a significant other, these are things Redditors hope to avoid.

Saying 'I Don't'

"Marry someone I don't love."

Infidelity

"Cheat while being in a relationship and cheat while i'm married."

BlueDutch

Reproducing

"As a person who did reproduce - I'm very happy with my decision but it is so much fucking work, not at all something you should do by accident. Use birth control people! I recommend IUDs, they are about as close to foolproof as it's possible to get."

Voctus

Thrill-seekers live off of adrenaline, but these Redditors are comfortable in opting out of adventure.

Spelunking

"Cave exploring- not sure if that's what it's officially called but when people wedge themselves into tiny spaces underground in caves to go and have a look."

"Just nope. No way. Why do people do this?"

Exploration Gone Bad

"Yup, I'm pretty outdoorsy and adventurous but spelunking frightens me for some reason. That became worse when I heard about the Nutty Putty cave incident. If you don't know what it's about basically a guy got stuck in a very narrow opening and because of the complicated location of the said opening they couldn't get him out. Rescuers could see his legs but were helpless. He eventually died but it was deemed too dangerous to retrieve his body so they just left it there. The cave is now closed to the public and the opening was closed shut."

The Defective Cord

"Bunjee jumping. A broken rubber took me into this world, a broken rubber is not taking me out of it."

ThatMexicanDude339

Extravagant Indulgences

"Buy a mansion or a super expensive car. Even if I had the money. I feel it's just for ego inflation while there is people that don't have a healthy place to live and get a packet bus to work everyday."

There are enough horror stories out there to keep people from being in altered states.

It Effs You Up

"Meth."

"Edit: Also heroin."

Confession From An Addict

"Heroin. It ruined my life for about half a decade. It ended my relationship with someone I loved more than anything. I still have dreams where I'm addicted and in withdrawals again. Recovery from opiate addiction is an awful, painful, and non-linear process. I hate myself every day for being an addict. I hate that I didn't get help sooner, and that it had to get as bad as it did for me to change. I'm not sure I'll forgive myself for it for a very long time, if ever."

Non-Smoker

"26 and still haven't smoked."

I remember watching an episode of Fear Factor or something similar where a contestant faced their arachnophobia by letting a tarantula crawl on his face.

Watching that alone gave me such high anxiety.

It's a hard "nope" for me, and not even a couple thousand bucks would make me allow an eight-legged monster to chill on my face and lay thousands of spider eggs in my eyes and nose.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"
