I am afraid that religion will not die out quickly enough to prevent rabid christians from bombing rabid Muslims and sending us all back to the dark ages, except this time with the addition of a weird green glow.
Right now I am most afraid of not being able to pay my rent and getting thrown out on the street. And, that is not just a fear, It might become a reality! That's very scarey.
Next would be death by accident. It's usually a car cash that comes to mind. Choking, or dying in a fire or drowning. I am more worried about how everyone around me would react, other than my death itself. Or catching some incurable disease that kills quick...like in weeks or days.
I am also afraid of large stingy insects. Bees and wasps make me especially nervous, as when I am stung by them, the sting area becomes swelled like a balloon. I also find large spiders very creepy, but know I can pretty much avoid them. I am very glad I do not live in an area with scorprions. I would never leave the house!
I think it's because I suspect the meat comes from dead chickens. My dad always tried to reassure me by saying. "That soup ain't even seen a chicken! They just walk a chicken past the soup and the smell is all ya get!"
JFK's comment - without fear we become fodder or food - so to fear those without fear is by no means to revere them - to use its antiquated meaning - but to revere those with fear of what is to be revered (like a grizzly bear's personal space) is nothing to be afraid of - or shall we respect he who treads out the den of the lion without recognition of his title - Kings are sovereign regarding judgements, jugulars and jungle trespassers....JOHN! I'm afraid of super-delegates
I am afraid of complacency, I hate it and would never want to get near it. I am afraid of self pity, I have wallowed in it once long ago and had a hard time getting out of it. I fear bitterness and negativity, would like to stay away from that ...
that is so nice of you to say, i have been holding success at bay all my life, but i actually do not think i can fight it any more..... You are a lovely person, i l would love to meet you blondepoet, and go out and chat, and shop, you are so funny, kind, and my first fan.... xxxxxxxxx Brenda.
You either haven't read this thread ..... I have mentioned my fears.. what makes you think that I am disrespectful or insensitive? I hate both qualities!! wow I just realised my mistake....
I was under the impression that you were responding to the previous question... about em snakes.. ..( the freudian angle! ... it is an occupational hazard , analysis time always) . I did not realise that you were speaking about your fears .....cross my heart... .sorry... didn't mean to hurt!! .... Back to being friends can we... if we were at all.... Truly sorry that's an oversight..
Physically I get the shakes when up high so I guess that is a major fear but deep down inside I believe my biggest fear is failure,at not being the best at whatever I tackle. I know it's stupid, perhaps, egotistical and irrational but there you go the question was posed and I answered
No one laughs at my jokes except my baby. However when I make a statement such as "Your kids seemed so much younger five years ago" I seem to be able to bring people close to the point of spitting their coke (including ice cubes) out their nose.
I was camping at Yellowstone when I just a tot, and we forgot to lock up our food like your suppose too. Well needless to say, there was one heck of a mess the next morning, and amazingly enough- everyone slept right through the commotion. How scary is that? I still remember my mother freaking out the next morning.
...well, it's good no one woke up....I've woken up with a black bear sitting and staring at our campsite within about 50 feet.....got me out of the tent quick....was on a very, very small island with not many places to run to.....and wouldn't have been able to get me and my kayak into the water fast enough...banged pots and pans to scare him...took his time leaving...i figure he was sizing up the situation.
i don't worry about it anymore if i'm alone...i have a system too - i think it makes me feel safer somehow. when i first installed a sec. system, I kept forgetting about it...for about a week or so, the cat would be let out the door in the a.m. with the sounds of the alarm going off...he was getting used to the new morning routine of noise! ha ha
another time my security alarm was going off while i was sleeping (was alone)...i was not wide awake at all and found myself following the cat from my bedroom through the house into the kitchen with the alarm going off the entire time....then i 'woke up' and realized that it was actually going off!!!!!!!.....all was okay however....but....i'm glad to know that i at least I won't 'freak out' if it actually goes off when I'm home.....maybe i'm too relaxed???? maybe i don't really need an alarm system after all.......ha ha
I would have to say I've always feared myself more than anything. Have you ever really truly visited the dark place inside you and felt the thin line between normal life and allowing yourself to go completely insane?
Maybe because they're so UNNATURAL... big hands, big feet, painted on expression, dressed so they obviously stand out... very few clowns are actually "good clowns," and their behavior is bizarre, outside of social norms.
Why religious people grieve so much about death and are 'scared to death' of dying if, when they die, the'll be with God forever? What's wrong with dying anyway? Your born condemned to death...Is it not?
Death is an inevitable part of life. When one is born, he/she is ever closer and/or nearer to death. It is analogous to boarding a subway train, riding until the LAST STOP. Some will get off at that last...
