    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...

    Every night I get freaked out

    that some rapist/molester/robber/kidnapper/killer will come into my house and do something to my family, but just in case, I have a baseball bat under my bed, a big sharp piece of glass on my night stand, a wooden plank (sadly with no nails sticking out..), a super bright light...

    You stare out into the darkness.

    Did something move just out of your vision? There it was again? Your skin starts to crawl. Your hairs rise up. Soon a dark mist appears. It waits through your screen and fills your room. The clock reads 12:03a. You wake with a start your clock reads 12:02a mwahahaha

    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.

    Big out of town event this weekend.

    Typically I have excited nervous butterflies, but I am full of dread. I have a bad feeling about this one, I can't decide if it's paranoia or intuition speaking. The temperature will be 110 degrees! Not only do I need to make sure I'm ok, I have a horse that needs to be stellar...

    In the darkness your shadow looms as constant

    as the hands of time near nor far with the rising of each new moon. A haunting ghost seeking an open wound. The light that escapes is your tapestry, woven in your misery. Blue eyes pierced ears beckoning a silent scream. Paralyzed by the voices in your hidden scheme...

    I feel really sad, down.

    I don't know why but something is bothering me. What's even more stupid is that I don't even know what's bothering me. I'm 22 and I guess I'm still trying to find me. To figure myself out. All my life I've been someone's shadow or just shoulder to cry on, it has never been...

    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.

    Most people are scared,

    Most people don't make any achievement because they are scared, Most people lose each other because of being scared, most people miss the chance because they were scared.

    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...

    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...

    When someone scares me I shake

    for like 5 seconds and fall into a fetal position No screaming or flailing of the arms And that **** hurts. Try having every muscle in your body clench and release rapidly. It's like having a seizure when your awake. And trust me I know what that feels like....
