TODAY we’re asking you to be brave and relive the scariest thing you’ve ever done.

From extreme activities such as bungee-jumping and skydiving to more metaphorical leaps of faith such as getting married or buying a house, what’s the most frightening thing you’ve ever put yourself through?

Did this terrifying thing work out well for you and give your more confidence, or was it so awful it left you wishing you’d been a coward and not bothered? Would you encourage others to take the plunge and face their fears, whether it's something financially risky like starting their own business or something more physically dangerous?
