Long vs Short Psychology

#1
I trade sometimes. And I always go long, I never short.

To me, rise in prices seems natural. Companies and stocks exist to grow. Even otherwise, prices do rise just to keep up with inflation, I see inflation as the gravitational force here.

Going long (even for positional/swing trades), I feel comfortable as if I trust the business and the price.

Shorting, I feel I would go against the gravity.

Any thoughts ? :) I know market presents as many and as good opportunities to go short as to go long.
