    Fear Of Love

    I do not fear bees or tornadoes, like a normal person...but I do have a fear that is kind of unusual to females. I have a fear of romantic and sexual relationships with males. Which is probably shocking to most of you, because I am so open about my sexual desires here on EP...

    Looky Here...

    I stop fear from doing things to me, you dig? Oh am I cocky? I doubt that, confident that I know what I know and I believe in myself more than any other emotion inside of me? Yes indeed, I would cop to that any day.

    The Right Wings

    One day I was told that "the higher the flight, the greater the fall."  A common saying as a way to achieve overwhelming desires and optimistic plans. And I confess that sometimes I use such words as a protection for myself, also to avoid future disappointments. But I also know...

    Fear is something that the mind makes up for us to hold back. I think that fear should not stop me from doing what I choose to do as so many others of you had stated. I shall let fear not swallow me and engulf me into the darkness. That would be unexeptible. I am going to let the...

    I'm transgender but I haven't told my parents

    yet because I don't know how they'll react. I plan on telling them soon. I have a bag with a few things in it and plant to stay with my friend if things don't turn out right.

    Rehab For Fear

     I wish there was a rehab facility for people who live their lives in fear. I am afraid to do everything. I'm afraid of what people will think of me and I'm afraid of failing. I wish I could just live my life without fearing the unknown.

    I Keep Repeating That

    And it doesn't work. I wanted to do so many things but fear of losing my secure routine stopped me. I didn't apply for a better job, take a vacation, or anything. Fear is my worst enemy

    Caution But Not Fear

    There's a difference between being afraid to do something and being cautious about doing something, especially if it's a brand-new thing, and I have confused the two quite often.  I used to be afraid of what people thought of me, what they would think about me if I did...

    A Lesson Learned

    The last guy I was with (Mr Hermit) was afraid of basically living. As he put it "the intangibles" He would freak if I got too close or stepped back. If I called or didn't call. He lived in fear of opening up and sadly I got very close very quickly and he didn't know...

    For 29 years I've let fear control me

    and keep me from so much. Keep me from pursuing my dreams, going a little wild, or from even being myself. This is a sick and psychological issue and I've come to see and understand that I need to face this fear. I can't let it control me any longer. I will not slip back into...

    It's All About Love

    "All doubt, despair, and fear become insignificant once the intention of life becomes love, rather than dependence on love."   --  Sri da Avabhas Think about that, if we loved ourselves and others more sincerely...fear would leave. Life life in love.
