What are your fears?

I'm not really afraid of anything. Is that weird?

Not that I like them either. I'm actually jealous... I'd rather be afraid of snakes than spiders. Snakes don't generally hide in dark corners of your home, or come up through a drain... UGH.

I'm very unemotional. There's actually a medical term for it but I can't remember it right now.

The other day I pulled a book out from my shelf at work and a black widow walked across the top of my bare foot! I screamed and my boss came running in to find out if I was okay. He is also afraid of spiders but killed it for me.

I admit, I'm afraid of spiders.

I have a phobia of drowning. It sounds a little weird, but when I was younger I almost drowned in a swimming pool... just thinking about drowning for too long makes me hyperventilate. Those documenteries on how to escape from a car that's underwater? Totally freaks me out. The same with escape artists in a water tank trying to escape from all the chains... *shudder* My worst nightmare.

That's the only irrational fear I have... I'm of course terrifyed something will happen to my family or one of my close friends.

1. I have an irrational fear that someone is going to break into my home and harm me. Sometimes, I will wait to take a shower until someone comes home. Irrational.

2. I am afraid that something will happen to my mom and/or brother.

3. I am afraid thatI'll never be truly happy.
1.getting fat
2. unexpected pregnancy
3. a terrible car accident.
4. losing my family
And the end of the day , all you've got is yourself..
My biggest fears have always been losing someone very close to me and infertility. Both of those have happened so I don't guess there's much else.
Being poor and homeless. I'm always afraid I don't have enough money, especially if something happens (knock on wood)
You don't have to blow out my flame to make yours burn brighter.

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
I am deathly afraid of spiders too.

And the dark. I can be in the pitch black with others, but never alone. HEEEEEEEEELL NO! I know that is so ridiculous, but it's true. If I am sleeping alone, there must be a TV on or a bathroom or hall light on. It sucks when the power goes out. I always have lots of candles, lighters, flashlights nearby just in case...

That I wont be a good mom. I love the baby already, but I have a fear that once it gets here, I wont love it. I am terrified of that even though it is highly unlikely.
A closed mind is a wonderful thing to lose.

illness or disease
serious illness, disability or death in my immediate family
complete and utter dependency (or loss of independence)

that just about covers the main fears. of course, we all want to be safe and not subject to violence in any form, but for some reason, i don't fear in those areas as much.

I have to let my little dog out in the middle of the night and never want to walk into a pitch black room. From my bed I can look directly down the hallway and it freaks me out if it is pitch black.
