I have a love-fear relationship with the sea. It fascinates me and at the same time terrifies me. Your question reminds me of the words of a sage who said that knowledge is like the sea, if you dive deep into it you will find limitless treasures, but one must be wary of the dangers of its hidden depths and caves.

I did have one experience where I almost drowned in the sea when I was younger. Now I can still go to the sea, but not to the deeper parts. I'll back away immediately.

Yes. I don't know how to swim. I will die from panic with just the thought of a capsize.

I love the feeling whenever I'm near the sea where I can listen to the song of the wave and feel the gentle breeze.

I love looking at the sea, but I don't particularly like to be in it. On a boat is fine, but actually being in the water is not for me. I'm not afraid of drowning, but more afraid of what is lurking in the water.
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.

i have only ever admired the sea from a distance so i am not sure how i will feel on it but i can say the thought of drowning is scary though.
