I have a totally irrational fear - phobia, actually - of cats. I can't bear for a cat to come within ten feet of me.
Strangely enough, I have also just in the last few years developed a fear of heights, where it never used to bother me in the slightest. That puzzles me, as I thought phobias were things you either had throughout life, or were caused by a significant event. There has been no event in my life to suddenly cause me to be afraid of heights.
There's absolutely nothing that I have been faced with in life that has made me really afraid (for myself), except one very small yet for me 'terrifying' thing... infact I can barely even write the word! Spiders.
I really hate to answer this question, but I will anyway. I'm afraid of people as they always hurt me in some way, even my best friend of 14 years stole and betrayed me! I really don't like people much and hide from them as it is very hard for me to gain trust in them and when I do, wham! it happens.
Are you afraid of any group of people?This could be a race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, etc. Are you afraid of a certain type or class of people generally? I'm afraid of ignorant people. That's...
