    I'm Scared of Fish

    I don't remember how it all started but its turned into a major fear. If I see a fish dead or alive I freak out, sometimes just the thought of fish is enough. 1) A few years ago my ex was given some Mackrel to feed to his dogs, he had put it away so I couldn't see it because...

    Losing Him

    I have many fears which I cannot say.  But the newest fear I really have is losing my friend Charlie.  He is so special to me.  I wish he could look between the lines and see how special he really is to me.  God almost took him the first time.  But this...

    After my motorcycle accident I'm too scared to

    go on one now. I'll hysterically cry, if someone just asks me to go on. I could've died, but I'm not scared of death so what is going on? Help someone?

    Death is inevitable. Our fear of it makes us

    play safe, blocks out emotion. It's a losing game. Without passion you are already dead.

    Fear can protect you.

    Fear can be paralysing. At the moment, I don't know which one is applicable... but what I do know is that I'm afraid. Afraid of being hurt again. Afraid of being vulnerable. Afraid that things have changed and can never go back. Afraid that I'd lose my way again. I'm just...

    NOT ALL FEAR IS BAD When we attain

    enlightenment we will have an end to suffering. In the meantime we are going to experience fear. Fear is our mind’s way of compelling us to get up and do what we need to do. It is the little slave master in our head. Fear is only a problem when it is excessive, paralyzing or...

    Life as a loser is not difficult. It's downright impossible. I, for one, think (hell no...I KNOW...) It's so impossible that I've always wanted to end my misery once and for all and would've gone through with it if I didn't fear the pain of killing myself so much. I remember...

    Once bitten, twice shy.

    The impact feels too real to be avoided. I've been floating and many things appear to be surreal within my vision. I've chosen to believe that it's just too good to be true. Will I ever be convinced that it's not a dream?

    I think fears can be divided into different

    groups. I divide them to "stupid" fears and then the other group is of the fears that really stop us from wanting to face reality. (Just made this up). Since I was little I have been on the claustrophobic side, hence I hated elevators. I made my mom climb up the stairs because...

    Many of my deep-rooted fears are intangible in

    nature... which makes them so hard to battle, because they take no shape and no form, and they sneak up on you when you least expect it. I fear that I will be alone forever. I fear letting people get close. I fear that I am easily forgotten and replaceable. I fear losing the...
