    I'm scared of everything lately.

    I'm scared of living. I'm terrified of dying, which I suppose is why I stay. The fear of death and what's after is more overwhelming than the fear of life. I'm scared of myself. I'm scared of the world and the everyone around me. I'm scared of every little thing that can go...

    I have a younger sister

    who is 3 and a younger brother who is 9. My sister broke his Lego things and he got mad. So he took her to his room and closed the door. Then he hit her and put her in his closet where she was found crying. I'm scared my brother is a psychopath. This is not the only things he...

    I've got to have a forensic assessment done soon

    and I'm absolutely dreading it. These people are trying to frame me and lock me up. They want me locked away. They don't want to help me survive, they want to control me and brainwash me and get me out of their way so that I forget about their plans and resort back to plain old...

    So.. This guy that used to be at my

    cheerleading gym, he was on my team with me, it was back in 2012, and I had the biggest crush on him. He was so cute, I was 12 and he was 18, he was my backspot, and I trusted him with my life. One day he just never showed up at the gym for practice, everyone said he quit...

    I had a dream the other night.

    There were these two men walking up behind my house (there's train tracks behind my house) and I was coming through the gate into the backyard. I said Hi to the men and they continued walking up to the fence of my yard. They said to me "We know who you are" and then everything...

    To Be Honest I Am Scared.

    I don't think about it much as I employ mindfulness in my daily life, staying in the NOW, so my thoughts don't wander. It helps. But, when I lie in bed at night, in the dark, in the silence, my mind goes to the future. I try to feel how it will be when I leave the home I love...

    the Thing That Scares Me Most

    In a word: Failure I worry all the time that somehow I am going to screw up everything I'm doing at the moment. I worry about bills, house payments most of all. I earn just about enough to just get me by and my major problem is I'm terrible with handling money. One of the ways...

    Blindsided, Bushwhacked When I Least Expected It

    But isn't that how it happens? What an emotional roller coaster! From the depths of despair to undeserved happiness. I don't know what I have done to meet such an awesome person but I need to continue doing it. My only fear is I will wake up and it will all have been a dream...

    I know I shouldn't feel this way in my own home.

    I'm 17 and when I was 12 and 13 my brother did some stuff that he should not have to me and my little sister. Nothing extremely bad, but it has effected me so horriblely. My mom, for reasons that I can't ever fully understand, decided not to do anything but forget about it. My...

    I feel like my chest is being crushed

    or compressed and my breath is short. I feel scared and panicky, but some how I'm just barely able to keep calm on the surface. I don't know what this is and it usually doesn't last long. But it's been happening more frequently.

    I'm Scared Because Everybody Dies

    Everybody I love, everybody I care about, everyone who has ever inspired me, everyone who has ever smiled at me or lifted my spirits, everybody dies. The older I get the more I face the profound loss of everyone I care about. Either that or I face the only way not to experience...

    but each time I get into my car and we're traveling somewhere, there's no fear in my heart at all...same goes for trains, for some reason I don't fear them and think they're safe. But each and every time I go abord an airplane, fear just comes over me especially during takeoff...

    that you've never met is probably one of the scariest things.

    When I was a child people would tell me

    that one day I would be a heart breaker. I didn't really understand what it meant but it didn't sound appealing to me. I was confused as to why they had huge smiles on their face while exclaiming this. To me it seemed like a horrible concept, breaking peoples hearts. Whatever it...

    I live in constant fear every day.

    I have two really big fears, and tons of anxieties. I get stressed or anxiety a lot, and I get so scared that I make myself cry or deal with said fear because my mind makes it happen. I'm tired of it, but there's no relief.

    who means a lot to me. I typically don't give my opinion on other people's marriages when I think they should end, but I'm terrified the next time I see her will be on the news. She was honest with her spouse and told him she had developed feelings for someone else. He was anger...

    My biggest fear is never finding myself.

    Being swallowed up by outside influences and living a life created for regular people with regular minds. Never finding out what I'm capable of.. What my true desires are.. Slowly losing sight of what it's like to have a completely independent outlook on life.
