I Am Scared

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,428 People

    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...

    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...

    Oblivion I always see

    and hear the word called Oblivion, i thought it is beautiful, an art but i saw the true meaning of this word; i never thought it would scare me. Oblivion is a word about an act of forgetting something, some place or someone. As a child and up until now, i've always craved the...

    My boyfriend and I have been together

    for three years, and we've been talking about sex a lot recently. We've done other things. Well, I've done things to him. I haven't really been comfortable letting him see or explore much of my body because I hate my body so much. I'm not waiting until marriage or anything...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    It started when I closed my eyes

    and saw the thing floating above me. Those gaping holes where the eyes should be. Lying as if mirroring me, facing me from above. And I tried to change it in my mind. I let fairies dance on it, grew flowers around its body, but still it hovered there staring at me. So I was...

    I'm Scared Because Everybody Dies

    I find that I get really scared at night time

    if I leave my room to use the bathroom or anything. Because my partner is asleep so I feel like I'm vulnerable and someone is watching me or going to jump out of the darkness and do God knows what.

    It hasn't talked to me in awhile until I heard it while I was sleeping, and a couple minutes after I woke up, it was still talking. It doesn't say anything bad, but it's voice is scary because it changes pitch. It was saying "love----?" It was stretching the 'v' sound and made...

    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.
