I Am Scared

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,322 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.

    Trusting someone with your heart

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

    The Night It All Changed

    I'm sure I knew this was coming.  I hoped it wouldn't.  But here I am, 31 years old locked in my parents bedroom with my two year old daughter waiting for my drunk husband to try and beat down the door.  For once in my life though, I actually know I am doing...

    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'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...

    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...

    the Thing That Scares Me Most

    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...

    I'm Scared Because Everybody Dies

    When someone scares me I shake

    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...

    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...
