    I'M Scared Of Being Alone With Men

    I won't go into details why exactly but I'll say this, for a long time I would always get hit on by men way older than me. So today when this big tall black guy-he looked about my age,19, maybe a few years younger or older, I dunno-came up to me randomly asking for my name, I...

    I admit that I'm scared of love.

    It terrifies me and captivates me all at the same time. It makes me vunerable, excited, terrified, happy, emotional, ecstatic, nervous, amazing.. the list is endless! I have never in my life felt anywhere near what I feel for my girlfriend. And the thought that she has my heart...

    I'm afraid to go to my flute lesson today.

    I have a test and mr teacher really doesn't like me. She intimidates me to the point where I can't remember what I'm playing. Last year I had this really big issue with her. She told me off for not practising but I did, a lot. I had to try so hard not to cry in front of her...

    Change Of Ground

    In my dream there was a glass jar, in the shape and size of a cat. Curious, my cat went to peer and sniff inside and around it. Then she poured herself into it. Filling in every detail of the jar with her body, it fit her perfectly. I thought, "How interesting, she looks...

    Frit.

    I have days when I'm scared and that's all I am.  That my whole life is a response to fear. I don't think it's an unusual place to be but I accept that it's not good.  On a day with some brightness in it I smugly consider myself glad that at least I've realised that I live my...

    Why I Get Afraid

     I have experienced anxiety since childhood- and can you imagine not a single person EVER recognized the feelings I was having as anxiety and I didn't even have a name for them until I was 40 years old. How my life got wasted because of not being able to give a name to the...

    I've always been scared of other people, and after a long set of experiences have been terrified of getting close to others, accepting help, even just asking for help. I just can't shake the feeling that if I call out no one will come to save me, and I'll have to bear the weight...

    Actually, I'm Terrified

    My fear is crippling. It holds me captive, but the cage door is open. I am just too damn afraid of what's outside of it. So I remain inside it, surrounded by still more fear.  What I fear may never come to fruition, and from past experience, most of my fears rarely do...

    If someone were to ask me if I am ready to die, I would strongly protest... I am not done with this world. I do not want to be done for a long time, but I realize none of us really get to choose when we will move on.  It is not that this world itself is so grand that I do not...

    Scared is a major understatement.

    I'm mortified. I feel the change before I see it. I hate the emptiness and for once I can say I hate the nights. There's once again fear in me that I haven't felt in an extremely long time. It's the fear of constant rejection and the fear that I'll always be this alone. I can't...
