Daily Prompt: When you do something scary or stressful — bungee jumping, public speaking, etc. — do you prefer to be surrounded by friends or by strangers? Why?

By strangers. Definitely strangers. I become a mean person when I’m stressed so I’d rather strangers think I’m horrible than my friends. 

Also, if I fail whatever risk I’m taking, then no one needs to know. There’s no need for me to be reminded of my failures at every turn even when it’s good for my ego.
