      My son will never find a job, never move away and I'll have to kick him in the butt and it'll hurt my foot.

        We all do, born alone and die alone, no one can go with you. Don't worry, it is painless.

        Eew! Not my kind of place although I have two harmless snakes. I found an article where the new thing is massage with different snakes crawling on your back.

      ummm fear itself I guess. I hear that the only thing to fear is fear itself and that sounds pretty good to me smile

      My biggest fear is ending up alone in a ratty high rise apartment without any space to swing a kitten let alone a cat. Not being anywhere near open water like a river, a lake or a beach at that stage of life and, even if I were to put a line into some water, thanks to present day turkeys, know I wouldn't catch anything anyway except maybe a cold. Suzuki the Japanese Canadian naturalist went through something similar. The places where he used to fish as a kid in the USA have for decades been fished out. Lumbering the planet with more and more people is someone's idea of progress. It is my idea on how to kill a world and leave nothing for future generations. These things run together and scare the hell out of me.

      I also fear religious injustice but that is also part and parcel when it comes to destroying our beautiful world.

      Have you guys read 1984? Where the government used peoples fears to punish them. I think it was rats the guy was afraid of, so they took rats in a cage and put that on his head, forcing him to have all these rats going for his face! Don't really like to share my real fears anymore, wouldn't want em used against me wink

      Maybe I read to much lol

        You do have a point. I can mention my fears simply because they are coming true anyway so nothing to be used against me. For some people destroying our world is simply making a buck and business as usual. There is a recent documentary on how the oceans of the world have become depleted of fish and what were once common species are now facing extinction from overfishing. It is happening. I can't stop it. I fear for the future but how can you possibly use that against me? Like I said it is happening right now. To use your example the cage full of rats is already on my head or I should say our collective head.

      My biggest fear is when someone shouts at me, mainly men. I had to deal with that growing up, and to this day it pretty much scares the sh** out of me. I can't stand it when people shout when they are angry.

      As cliche as it sounds I have to agree with Roosevelt....My biggest fear is fear. That all consuming, paralyzing fear is truly something to be scared of.

      It took my several years to fully comprehend and grasp the validness of the Roosevelts quote, There is nothing to fear but fear itself.....

      My worst fear is finding myself living in an abusive nursing home, strapped into a wheelchair after having a stroke which leaves me paralyzed and drooling.

        We had a tornado warning with high winds blowing stuff around (kinda rare in MI). No funnel cloud
        but the sound of debris clunking against the brick wall of my building was pretty frightening. I'm on the top floor and stuff was bouncing off my windows all the way up here.
        You would have been out of your mind I bet lol A tornado this high up in the air  - a perfect storm of habee phobia

        I crawled into the bathtub for a half hour or so. I felt safer there than retreating to the basement of the building. My theory is lol if this building comes crashing down, I'll be on top of the rubble not under it

        Oh, I live on the top floor because it's safer for me. What with my phobia of snakes.

          I could say my worst fear is having the air bag in my truck going off and not knowing if it will hurt my face, or going to the doctors when I am really ill, not sick but ill. I would have to say, my biggest fear is the day my children say good-bye and leave our home, and start their own journey of life. I know it’s called letting go, but it scares me more than anything. I like hearing dad and mom in the house, it is very hard to describe, but those two words are very comforting.

          The basement really is the safest place during a tornado - you could get sucked out of the bathtub!

      My biggest fear is something awful happening to one of my children. I don't dwell on it much though.

      for random irrational fears, I am afraid of ballons.

      My biggest fear is that there is not enough courage to go around.

      Most people are good. But by and large, I have found that while most people don't mean other people any harm, it is hard to get them to put themselves on the line when other people are being attacked. Which is why a small minority of bullies can make life miserable for all of us.

      My biggest fear is that courage will fail...

      My biggest fear at this point in my life is having a repeat of my biggest fear of fear.  (I was afraid of being alone which made me afraid to be afraid and then it happened, now I'm not afraid of being alone, but still afraid of being afraid...)
