You may or may not have a greatest fear of anything. A lot of people do. I have set up a survey hub for all those who would rather NOT post that publicly. But for those of you who don't mind, post away. I guess if I had to put anything at the top of the list, it would be a fear of failure at life. It's not that big a fear, but it is there. Here's the link for those who want to participate in confidence. Thanks http://hubpages.com/hub/greatest-fear-survey
My greatest fear is getting a call from the police that my son-in-law has killed my daughter, my grandson and himself. He is abusive and mentally a mess from prescription drug and, I suspect nonprescription drugs. He is very suggestible and you see these murder/suicide reports on the news all the time. I hope I am way off base, but it is a mother's worst fear!!
I have a couple of fears. Though I believe they'll be classed as phobias? Whichever - I feel scared so I'm going with fear.
Spiders and flying. Spiders make me cringe and want to turn inside out. And weirdly I have absolutely no fear with any other bugs/insects. Just arachnids. However, purely the fault of my dad. He did far too much spider throwing and spider chasing, with me when I was a child. I know the 'run away from spiders' reflex was set by him. Still, he did show me how much fun you can have with sticks.
And flying makes me want to crumble. I do fly. I will not allow my fear to keep me grounded. But ... I doubt I'll ever enjoy it. It's a means to an end. A horrible one in my opinion. And no, this one's not my dads' fault. He never chased me with a boeing or hid one in my bed ...
I fear Cockroaches, I hate they way they scurry I hate the way they can multiply ( did you know a female is impregnanted once and she lays eggs for a lifetime) wahhhhh... I hate they way they can see in all directions ,so escape well ( not anymore now that I know this) I hate their feelers,searching out for what -me? grrrr
I dont come into their home ,so they can stay outta mine!
Do I have a Phobia ,probably I just learned they dont like the cold , Im checking out Iceland or Alaska..
Dont like anything that creeps, crawls, or scurries (except babies ,but they dont flit ,they only ...
I fear being alone for the rest of my life. My family will always be there in some way or another, but I need companionship. This has led to some very bad relationships, that I hope to have learned from and some good ones that I will always remember and have a longing for.
