I Am Scared

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,282 People

    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.

    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 Am Scared.

    I am scared that those honest stories that I have written are a figment of my imagination. I am scared that if I make the sacrifices today to go for what I think is true today it will not be worth it. I am scared that one day I will wake up and realise this was all just a big...

    Trusting someone with your heart

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

    I don't know how or why this happens,

    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 am scared. I've been sexually,

    physically, and mentally abused by a family member along with being bullied at school. This is the cause f my anxiety. I can't handle rough housing to close to me because I'm afraid I'm going to get hit. I can't handle big crowds. I'm really self conscious and hate when people...

    When someone scares me I shake

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.
