I Am Scared

    I'm so scared of the future.

    What does it hold? Who will be there for me ? Will I ever fall in love ? Will I be successful? Will I even be alive ? Life is scary. And though at times I thought of giving up I am here but this uncertainty about the future is doing my head in. It's not a good feeling.

    I want to donate my kidney to someone

    who needs one in order to stay alive. But I am a bit scared of the results or if I can even do it. Selfish for me to keep a kidney when I can save someone else live. Although I can understand why someone might one to keep their kidney. I hope my parents don't get disappointed...

    Hate

     I'm afraid of me, and honestly - afraid of living. The ever-lingering feeling of total inability to escape from being alive. Though, I feel no want for ending it, it's just a sad shame for it all to continue. The feeling is tremendously bitter, the soul is ripped apart...

    Trusting someone with your heart

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

    When I was a child people would tell me

    Specifically of men. And it sucks.

    When I was a kid, I was a huge tomboy. Throughout early middle school other girls were actually envious of me because they didn't understand how I was so unafraid of guys. I was the one who would go up to a group and ask them to play when all my friends would be nervous and...

    I'm not ready to tell my friends about my

    self-harm and I might go swimming tomorrow. I can't hide my cuts when I'm swimming. I suggested going to a movie instead. I'm afraid our plans to go to the movies won't happen and we end up going in the pool.

    I'm not the scared one,

    my sister is. She is 13 and hates rides and roller coasters. She scares herself by watching ride accidents and says 'it doesn't even scare me' yet when we get to the theme park or whatever she doesn't go on the rides. It's a waste of money. Next week we are going to the...

    I'm scared to be in a relationship

    because I'm insecure with myself. Sure I love sex but being naked in front of a man every day? I can't. Letting them see me on my worst days. No. Getting to know me all the way. Nope no thanks. But I love love.
