    What are you afraid of?

    What are you afraid of, or are you fearless?

    I am afraid of heights and the deep waters.  It makes me useless and it frightens me more than anything.

    "The only thing we have to fear....is fear itself." (Franklin D. Roosevelt)

    I am afraid of fear.  I seek courage in crisis, faith in the face of fear, and wisdom in times of wonderment. 

    I hold on to hope, embrace encouragement, and seek to own the opportunity when it is revealed.

    My desire is to walk on, when I think I can't, to hold on where there seems to be no anchor, and to believe when belief is suspended.

    I shove fear aside.  Yes, we can!

    I'm afraid of spiders and dying, but I'm more afraid of spiders.

    Not knowing what happens next fears me most.

    Just being on aware.

    I'm like Superman05...I'm afraid of spiders. And I'm also afraid of heights and being outside in a thunderstorm.

    Spiders, and anything that may look like a spider, drowning, choking, suffocatiing, bees, wasps, bumble bees, deadly snakes (gardner snakes don't scare me), swimming in water that I can't see to the bottom of (like some lakes), going below the earths surface, and public speaking.

    I know, that's a lot of things to be afraid of and the things you'd think I'd be afraid of, like fighting, terrorists, flying, other dangerous animals, being attacked and robbed (or worse) even at gun point, those things don't scare me as bad the things that do scare me. 

    With that said, I can't consider myself fearless, but I will say this.  Even though those things scare me, I do what a can to be courageous enough to conquer those fears when my brain permits me to.

    I don't see any reason to fear anything. I am fearless.

    Afraid that my negative thoughts might actually be true. But I'm learning that my positive thoughts are true enough to conquer them.

    Thanks for your interesting responses.  I'm afraid of Roller Coasters in Theme Parks. I definitely can't go on one. Even as a child on the little ones, all the kids used to scream with delight - I was the only child who used to cry to my parents "I wanna get off".

    I am afraid of not living my life to the fullest and some how getting caught up in a uninspiring routine.

    I am terrified of flying! Two days before I have to take a flight, my stomach churns and by the time, I have to board, I’m a nervous wreck. One time I tried a drink or two at the bar (I am not a drinker) and that did not help either. I stick to road trips or trains…If you’ve never ridden on a train you need to try it…Fun and you travel through some great looking country!

    No one is fearless and, if they believe they are, it's probably because they aren't being honest with themselves. I would consider a genuine complete lack of fear to be an unbalanced and potentially dangerous state, indicative of some sociopathic leanings. Personally, I fear a number of things, but most are passive fears I don't put much thought or effort into on a daily basis unless it's very late and I am battling insomnia. Just the normal widespread fears; death of loved ones, death of self, losing my job, financial crises, etc. On a more fantastic note, I fear becoming pregnant, and not solely due to the responsibility of having a child. I fear being pregnant in and of itself, and have a recurrent nightmare in which the baby bursts from me in much the same manner as the title creature in the movie "Alien." And yes, I'm aware that doesn't sound particularly healthy.
