I was thinking about selecting Vanguards VTSMX (total market fund) as my ROTH since I feel better about investing in a more conservative but more diversified fund

Conservative compared to what? How much more conservative?

Growth funds are by definition quite aggressive. A total market fund is STILL pretty aggressive. In fact, just about any stock-based investment is aggressive.
