    What's your biggest fear?

    Mine is the inevitability of being average. I'm afraid I'll live a boring life and not experience the world the way it should be. Also the sea. Te scares me that we haven't discovered all of it or even half. I don't like the idea of not seeing what's in the water and the fear of...

    Death Can Be A Fear

    Hmmm. I would have to say the thing that scares me the most is dieing. My aunt recently died, my uncle had a close call to dieing, and I have realized that everyday I am getting closer to death. In my religion people believe that after you die your spirit lives on. But is...

    What Will I Do?

    I don't really have to many fears.  My life has been f***ed up since the age of 15.  I am now in my 40's.  I guess my biggest fear would have to be being left alone.  I have 2 teenage boys, and I know they will leave home someday.  My old man is 20...

    I Fear .....

    I have a fear of spiders (other bugs, roaches) and snakes. It's not outright terror (unless they're on me or above a door I have to walk through.) but I really don't like them. I'll let the  little "cute" bugs go outside, but anything that is super fast (spiders, centipedes...

    Besides Death...

    My #1 fear is death.  It doesn't matter whether I go peacefully of if I live to old age, it's just the not being that I fear.  After that, I'm mostly afraid of not accomplishing my dreams, how about you?

    The thing I fear most is loosing my friends

    or family. I have a very strong bond with ten and I don't know if I could live if I lost them. Besides that it's Thunderstorms. I know it might sound a little weird but my house was struck by lightning during one and we lost everything. So I'm a little traumatized by it.

    Fear Most

    What I fear most is height.  You won't find me climbing a mountain.  You won't find me at the edge of a cliff.  You won't find me in an airplane. You won't find me on the top of a roof of a house.
