I Am Scared

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,314 People

    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.

    It's quarter past three in the morning.

    . I drifted off to sleep briefly at around 11-11:30 but woke up soon after with night terrors and flashbacks. I had this nightmare that he was out of prison and coming to find me again. Then she came back from the dead and came too. They were both here with their hands all over...

    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...

    Now what? I was happy.

    He wanted more. It is too late. I am not sure what to do with my life. On my days off from work, I can barely get up but to eat. It's been 6 months, I thought I would not miss him or want him anymore but I do.

    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 not positive anymore.

    .. If I feel the slightest bit of happiness my mind kind of snaps back, and I'm reminded about my pain, I'm overwhelmed with my life right now. I've finally made a doctors appointment, she'll hear what I have to say then slam a prescription of antidepressants in front of me and...

    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...

    I'm scared... so scared.

    ...like I hadn't been before... and it feels horrible. I feel like a pressure in my chest, my hands are shaking, my head hurts so bad, i feel like dying, like wanting to disappear, to be gone, to not be found... ever.

    I feel like I often over analyze things

    and take people's affection to mean more than they intend. And can't help but feel foolish and stupid for thinking they might've felt something more. It makes it hard to trust your own thoughts when you become attached to someone. Having a crush is torture.

    So I just came home from Halloween horror nights

    and I'm thoroughly freaked out. I absolutely love horror movies, but for some reason one of the houses I went too left a horrible impression on me. I can't even fall asleep because I'm so scared.

    Trusting someone with your heart

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

    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.

    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...

    When someone scares me I shake
