Long story short, don't trust google translate with your life. (I'm sorry for being a know-it-all wow)

edit: also another cool option would be "nihil timeo" which means "I fear nothing".
whoa idk whether you're farther along in Latin than I am (I don't trust google translate at all, don't you worry, I take Latin classes too and was going off of that) but I was going with the passive voice of "terreo terrere" which means "to scare," but in the passive I think it means, not "I scare" but "I am scared."

the "sum" is just adding emphasis

the "non" is kinda obvious.

IF I AM STILL INCORRECT PLEASE TELL ME BECAUSE NOW I AM HAVING LATIN IDENTITY CRISIS

DO I KNOW LATIN

;.;

but "nihil timeo" is actually a REALLY cool other option

I will consider that
