Much of her character arc is about Pearl bridging the dissonance between what she ''actually'' feels and what Gem society says she "should" feel.

** Steven himself shows signs of this in a few episodes, bouncing back from encountering all sorts of dangerous things as he gains more experience adventuring with the Crystal Gems. In "Space Race", Pearl apologizes for dragging him along on a test flight in a home-made spaceship and nearly getting the both of them killed, and Steven shrugs it off with "I'm used to it." Other episodes, however, show that Steven's [[StepfordSmiler not dealing with things as well as he lets on]].

** When integrating antagonists and mechanics from the d20 version of the game into the more common DungeonsAndDragons or D20 modern settings, the manual recommends either dramatically reducing or leaving out the sanity-erosion mechanic entirely because of this trope. Fantasy adventurers accept weird things beyond their comprehension all the time because it's their job (literally their job for classes like clerics and warlocks).
