I Am Scared

    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 am worried and scared.

    I do love her very very much. She loves me too. But what if I am not good enough? What if I hurt her? Her life has been so much pain already. She doesnt need any more pain. Especially if I am the one to cause it. I know I am not important enough for an answer but I pray to God...

    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...

    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

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

    When someone scares me I shake

    So I went to the doctor to get a prescription

    for birth control. Everything was fast and I didn't need a pelvic exam (not until I turn 21). When she checked my heart she said I had a heart murmur and it was loud. She wanted me to get an ultrasound before she gives me any birth control because if it's serious I can get...

    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...

    like the dark or dying. Now, the normal day-to-day things scare me. Meeting people. Going places. Driving. Basically anything that involves leaving my very small, safe bubble. Oddly, the things that used to scare me, no longer do. Its like my whole perspective of fear has been...

    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.
