Like the title says, what do you fear? What is the thing (or things) that scare you the most?

We all have those fears that either keep us away from doing or trying new things, wither away at our confidence, or something you find to be, well, scary.

I'll start this off by sharing a few of my own, since I am thinking about them now:

1. Unable to being helpful/entertaining/meaningful in a life of someone I care about or try to.
---This is one of those things where I always want to see someone happy. I hate the feeling of being a burden to someone, especially those I feel are close to me. I honestly do my best all of the time, even though it may feel uncomfortable for me. But even then, I begin to worry about if the person I am talking to is getting annoyed or if didn't help to a degree that would be satisfactory.

2. Being rejected.
---I'm not just talking about being rejected after asking a girl out on a date. While that is apart of this fear, my problem goes deeper than that. I have this deep seated fear that I might become the outcast among my peers or those who I would call my "friends". I have been bullied in the past for various reasons at various times and this started happening my family's divorce. I felt alienated, unwanted, and rejected. I did whatever I could to be "normal" in the eyes of my classmates but it never seemed to work out. It wasn't until I moved that I made progress in fitting in. Still, this fear persists and inhibits me from making many friends or getting a girl friend. Not only that, this fear has led into the fear of being alone as well and that fear is especially terrifying.



3. Change
---As I mentioned before, my family divorced and this occurred when I was much younger. I was in my pre-teen years, so this especially hit me hard. My mother moved away and I was left to live with my father for a few years. Then, my father got remarried to an awful woman (I hated the ceremony so much that I cried) and moved away to California. Then I moved away from my home town to where I am now and that was hard on me. It is because of these events that I am very scared to change my current situation. It is the reason I procrastinated when searching for colleges, finding a job, and much more. I hate change so much and something that threatens to change what I have now gotten used to is horrifying.



So what fears do you have that affect you?

EDIT : As I was looking through the posts, I forgot about my fear of failure. That one is a big fear for me too.

I fear the possibility that I've been receiving important messages/calls on my phone. It's been off for the past 2-3 weeks since I lost its charger.

The future is a scary thing. I'm also scared of homeless people in dark places, I was once chased by one who was holding a shiv. In daylight I'm cool with them, but in a dark place...... uggg

Humans spiders and moths....and anything else that might fly or jump into my face. If they all just stayed away from my head they wouldn't have to have such painful deaths. >=(

My biggest fears would be not being able to support myself or missing out on chances that could change the future for the better.



Never had much issues feeling rejected, and if I felt that way for a single second, I immediately evaluated the situation and got rid of the people that pissed me off. In the end, the same people that tried "alienating" me came crawling back saying they were jealous/upset or didn't realize what they were doing.

The way I saw it was, well as a kid I had a shit life. Because of that I didn't have any energy to waste on people that made me feel anything but happy. If you keep that mindset and do what's best for you, then better people will come your way.

Honestly, I used to fear death! I used to think about it while I was in bed at night, and it would freak me out. The "deathbed" scenario. I'm laying in bed, dying, and then. Nothing. I die, and who I am, what I think, is just gone. What an awful thought! How can that be? How can I just cease? I am a human being! A person! Then, thankfully, I became a Christian. Now my question is answered! Your soul lives on (: I will not cease! Yay! (:

Now my only fear is going back to the depressed rut I was once in. But it's not really a fear, cause with God there is no fear! (:

I know talking about religion isn't always advisable, but it's super relevant to the topic, and I just wanted to open up and share some fears of mine (:

I used to be afraid, until I died. Now all I fear is fear itself.

I'm scared of not surpassing the expectations of my family and in turn being out casted by them if I don't become successful and work my ass off(Has happened to all my other siblings, I'm the last one).
I'm scared of dying, something about me just dying off one day, nonetheless dying if I'm not happy or have lived my life to the fullest makes me horrified.
Relationship's and trusting people. I've ran through more rough patches than most and have completely lost all trust of people in general over experiences from threats, harassment, physical contact, and other beyond terrible things.
Fire, Spiders, Clowns, People's Expectations, My family, leaving home, being alone, this list can go on and on.

Although there are negatives in our lives, there's always plus's too, not everything is as dark as the box of fears you keep in your attic.

Holy Crap! that had to be intense. That's why I have a CCW Permit. Nothing stops a mugger faster than massive hemorrhaging. Thankfully, I've yet to have to use my CCW. I hope I never do.

I don't fear death but I don't want to go before reaching my goals.
I also fear small spaces,dogs, and heights.
