I volunteered for drug addiction prevention for many years with focus on psychedelics and have done probably hundreds of trips myself, dependent on how you count.
I have/had people coming to me with the same question a lot and honestly, if you fear it. Wait. Do some research or just wait. Respect is the right thing to have but don't go into a trip fearing part of the experience.
Pretty much every bad trip I have ever seen was caused by people talking themselves into it. That's why I discourage people to take it while they still have fear of it. It can be the most wonderful and magical experience in your life but it can also make your life hell if you're getting anxious and trying to step away from the collision.
