Rejection

My biggest fear is falling in love and being rejected, not loved back. I’m scared of being with someone, being vulnerable, opening up and then they change their minds or don’t want to be with me anymore. It scares the shit out of me and sabotages all possible relationships. Maybe I’m not ready….but then I don’t want to miss out opportunities because of fear but I want to be sure.

My biggest fear is forgetting. Forgetting all of the tiny moments that collectively make me who i am. Im afraid of forgetting people and why I loved them and I’m afraid they’ll do the same. I’m afraid of not existing as much as possible not only in my own head but in all of the heads of the people i care for or once cared for. I want to remember my life. Good and bad i want all of my moments all of the laughs, tears, shared secrets, fights, everything. I don’t want to forget, but the problem is, I’m already starting to.

My biggest fear is loss. That one day I’ll wake up and have nothing. Not a friend. Not a life. Nothing. I fear that I’ll never get the chance to live out my dreams. I fear losing those who are closest to me. I fear that I’ll lose my chance to accomplish what I want most in life. Lose my shot at happiness. I’m afraid to lose everything. But most of all, I’m afraid of losing myself, what matters to me, what I stand for. My integrity. My honor. My pride. I’m afraid of losing what it means to be me. My biggest fear is losing myself to the world.

In this day and age women are meant to be independent and not reliant on a man in their life. However although being a feminist I find that my nights are plagued with the fear that I will be alone for the rest of my life. Not having anyone to hold at night or talk to. Unlike heights or spiders I feel as if I can’t talk about this openly as I will be laughed at. People always tell me that I will find the right person one day but that doesn’t quench my fear.

My biggest fear is waiting for me in my last moment of existence. I am afraid that my consciousness won’t blink out with the rest of my systems when I breath my last. I fear that instead of heading toward the light, I will remain awake in my mind and in my soul and while awake I’ll feel the terribly hopeless desire to live. I’m afraid of what it will feel to my body’s cells as they diminish and retire their sacred purpose of living. I’m afraid that the world, like my body, will continue to decay, and that the soil we decay into will be so dry and leeched of nutrients that life will be unable to continue the growth that it has achieved over so many billions of years. I’m afraid that Life will then go bad, rotten, mad, and sick and that Life (oh… life) will continue to die until one day, there will be no life to appreciate the beauty and wonder that is our world, and that all that is left to be felt will be Death.


Failing

My biggest fear is failing…. Ever since I was a little girl I loved to read to put myself into the shoes of the main character girl or boy. I still continue to do it to this day I litterally say the main characters lines out loud and act like them till a little while after I finish the book. One day I watched thor the dark world and when I was watching that I realized what I’ve wanted to be all along. An Actress… Nobody really ever asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up so I kept it to my self and was wondering if this is really what I want to do. And I knew it was even the little plays I did as a little girl I loved to do. But one day my mom asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up I told her an Actress. She just looked at me and said well that’s a hard business to get in to, do you even like acting, I mean you have almost no professional experience, what made you choose this, you have so many other talents, extra. It made me really upset she said all that, but it made me even more determined to prove her wrong. My biggest fear is failing and her being right I wasn’t good enough and I shouldn’t have done it…. I hope that as I grow older i will continue to follow my dream and millions of people will now my name. I don’t want to act because of my mom or fame it’s because I love it and acting is my life.


…that I lost Her.

My biggest fear is that I lost Her. It’s all very fresh. It was intense, lots of positive emotions, trust, intimacy, for the moment We were happy. But I kept pushing, I wanted more, I was giving too much of myself and she just couldn’t gave as much, she told me that and even though I understood, I knew I should slow down, I couldn’t. I was giving all my best, and finally she told me, that this is too much for her. She needs to regain herself, we need to be friends, not lovers, she needs time to decide what she needs. And now I’m giving her all space she needs, space and time. But it is killing me. I guess I’m a bit needy person, too much affection from my side. And now, I fear, I tremble that we will never come back to what we had. I fear I lost her. I fear that so much. But I need to trust her. I know that. I need to get out of my comfort zone, but it is so hard.

my biggest fear is facing myself, all i can do is conform to society because if i don’t then people will exclude me. Even when i know something is wrong i cant say anything. Even if i see something horrible i cant act against it. I want to help some one but i become paralyzed because no one around me acts. I lose who i am. i want to yell cringe and scream but nothing comes out. When i try to do something i become struken by fear and end up running away. if i just conform i could run away forever. in a dream i can wonder all the bad things away. But i cant do that. i know i cant do that. because what im afraid of the most is hurting someone again. i want to stop. i want to act. i want to yell in the middle of the street to show how wrong it is. i want to stop dreaming. i want to create something real. i want to take myself back. i want to break free. i want to never give up again. because if i dream again i know it would hurt. it hurts so much to dream. that why i want to face myself. but i dont know what to do. no i know what i want to do. but im too scared to do it.

Falling

Written by Jocelyn N. Valdes on March 18, 2014 2:43 am

My biggest fear… Is falling. Falling into depression. Falling into a dark deep hole that you can’t come out of. Falling in love and the person you fell in love with decides to rethink their love for you. Falling out of place with society. Falling and not getting up again that one once of your soul that pushes you to wake up and forces you to get out of bed. Falling into the same misery I see me parents in everyday. Falling into drugs, alcohol, and sex. Falling into society norm of welfare, homeless college students, and having kids in your teens. Falling that’s what my biggest fear is falling. It’s plain and simple one word to different people different meanings different situations and different styles. Falling and breaking into so many pieces that the one person who you thought can fix you is no longer by your side. Falling.

My biggest fear is to end up like my parents. I love them, but their lifestyle is something I want to avoid in my future. They use their PhDs as an excuse to be lazy when I ask them why they spend 10 hours a day watching Korean dramas on their weekends, yet I have to do extra math problems. ( “Talk to me when YOU have a PhD” is something they commonly say.) They think that now they are old they can’t do anything besides stare at a screen. They are hypocrites and I’d hate to turn into them when I grow up.

Failing was always an issue for me. I hate having the feeling that my someone I love will be disappointed in me. I was always determined to achieve success and nothing less but the best. However, failure happened. I was very disappointed. I didn’t want anyone to see it so I hid it where no one could find it (in my bottom draw, underneath my clothes). Living Environment was never a favorite subject of mine, therefore, I failed in it (I got a 65). That was the first time I ever got anything lower than an 80. Luckily, with extra practice and tutoring, I overcame it. I got a 75. Although I didn’t get a high grade in it, I appreciated this experience becuase it has taught me that failure will always occur in life. I learned that to overcome the failing was just to have a good attitude and study for it.

My biggest fear is being anywhere with snakes under any circumstances. Living in the city I have never faced a snake problem unless visiting the zoo but somehow I’ve always mange to think that they’re just going to pop up one day. Snakes are very dangerous creates either they bite you or they eat you. After watching numerous movies with snakes especially ” Snakes on A Plane” I panic at all the possibilities of a snake attack. They’re sneaky slimy creatures and I wish they never exist. I never have and never will get over this fear.

My biggest fear in the world is fish. That is right, I am terrified of fish, animals that many think of as pets that are easy to care for terrify me. It started when I was little, when I was at a pet store, looking at fishtanks. I saw a dead fish being cannibalized by other fish and it scarred me for life.

I know it is silly, but they disgust me and I get frightened when I see fish tanks. I have tried to get over my fear of harmless little fish but they still frighten me for some unknown reason.

My biggest fear is the forrest. While most people, especially in this state are able to find solace in the woods I am horrified by them. The main reason being that I am from new york, and as you can probably imagine the woods are scares there. But outside the fact that I have had very little interaction with the wilderness, I am also afraid of the woods because to me weird and horrific crimes always happen there. Typically in the city people are shot, carjacked, robbed, ect. And while unfortunate and scary as those crimes are they typically don’t compare to the weird, sick crimes that happen in the woods. Well this fear of mine was eventually overcome when I moved to virginia, and more specifically into a heavily wooded area. So after living here for the past months I have come to see that there is a way to find peace in the silence of the forrest. And though you won’t see me hiking up a mountain or trying to find flowers to preserve anytime soon, I must admit I am much less fearful then I was.

When I was a small child, velociraptors ran rampant in my nightmares. I have a vivid memory or watching the opening scene of Jurassic Park when I was four or five and hiding under the covers where I stayed for the majority of the movie. I was always more terrified of the raptors than of the T-Rex. (RAPTORS CAN OPEN DOORS!) As a small child I still didn’t know that dinosaurs were extinct and my older brothers made sure to make me believe they were still around. I eventually became educated about dinosaurs and in recent years learned that raptors weren’t much larger than chickens. I could totally take a chicken.

I guess one of my biggest fear is dying. People die everyday from anything and everything. Infections, gun violence, car accidents, etc. When I was younger I thought death would be painful cause you die due to something bad happening to you, but than I started hearing stories of “seeing the light” and feeling “peaceful”. After having many panic attacks and feeling what it feels like to pass out, I figured it must be the same as that peaceful feeling people get when their about to die. It feels like you’re falling into a well deserved nap. But the only difference between passing out and dying is when you die, you don’t wake up.

My biggest fear is never figuring out what I want to do with my life. Until, my junior year of high school I always wanted to be a doctor. When I took my first medical class, I immediately began to reconsider my decision. I had never really explored any other job options other than a doctor or nurse. I knew there were hundreds to choose from but I didn’t know which one was for me. So, I continued on in the medical field during my first year of college although I truly wasn’t happy with it. Throughout my first year I researched a few careers that I might be interested in, I thought about acting, journalism, music engineering or even becoming a English teacher. I woke up every morning with a new career that I wanted to try out. I was so scared that I would go through my whole college career and still not figure out what I’m put on this earth to do. I see my friends progressing towards the careers they want, they’re gaining great internships and wisdom and I want to be able to have that too. I’m currently a journalism major but I still wake up and think to myself if I’m making the right choice. There’s so much I want to do in life like, travel and experience new cultures and I’m afraid I won’t be able to do those things if I keep wasting time flip-flopping between career choices.

There’s not really a great story behind any of my big fears, so I was a little stumped with this prompt at first. Suddenly it occurred to me that it would be much more interesting to write about my tiniest fears instead. You know, the fears that are so irrational or embarrassing that you attempt to conceal them at least until after the third date, or possible several years into marriage. I made a list. I checked it twice. And then I drew a webcomic about it instead.

I’m not sure I can ever truly “overcome” this- as my children are my heartbeat; but to be honest I am no longer a fearful person, so when faced with this question I had to dig a bit to think about what scares me most in this world. I lean on my faith for understanding and I think the way that I combat this fear so that it does not debilitate me is to understand that I am not in control. The Bible asks, “Who of you by worrying can add one single minute to this life?”. Certainly not me. And I try not to let my worries consume me. I choose to trust. I choose to live. I choose to love- in spirit, body and mind. That is how I overcome fear.

My biggest fear is FAILING!

Failing was always an issue for me and I tried my best not to ever reach that level of disappointment. I was always determined to achieve success and nothing less but the best. However, there came a day when failure crept behind me. Math was never a favorite subject of mine, therefore, I failed terribly in it. Luckily, with extra practice and tutoring, I did satisfactory work. Although I never reached top grades in mathematics, I appreciated this experience becuase it has taught me that failure will always occur in life. However, in order to overcome this obatcle, all that’s needed was a postive attitude .

My biggest fear is going to a deli/sandwich shop (Subway, Quizno’s, local deli, etc…) and to find out that their toaster/oven/whatever they use to heat up sandwiches is broken. When I get my mind set on the idea that I’m gonna be able to eat the exact sandwich I want, then there’s no turning back. This actually has happened the past two days at the Eagle’s Nest and I’m now gonna have to take a timeout from there for a little while due to disappointment.

I worry that if I die, my son will get turned over to his father, which would be horrible. The idea of my son being handed over to what amounts to a perfect stranger is terrifying. My ex has anger issues from being deployed into a war zone multiple times and he isn’t a very good father to begin with. I would hope my son’s father would be happy to let him stay with my mom.

I worry that I would leave a big mess behind that my mom would have to sort through and fix. She’s spent too much time in her life fixing mine already.

I worry that if I die, there will be very few who want to come say goodbye at my funeral. I wonder how many people would actually miss me enough to show up?

I don’t think fear of death is something that a person can overcome so much as learn to accept. I haven’t come to terms with the concept of death and dying. I don’t have a belief system that provides comfort around death. I wish I could live forever because I hate the thought of not getting to see what comes next.

How do I overcome this unexpected fear?? With effort, I guess making thee unknown exciting. Taking life at its horns and controlling where it takes me and allowing thee unknown to take the ride with me! Excitement. Excitement! EXCITEMENT! I think I’m prepared.

My biggest fear is drowning…surprisingly enough, I love swimming. I just panic a little when I’m in open water – something about not knowing about everything that’s underneath me is very unsettling. I’m a firm believer in systematic desensitization, so I try my best to get over my fear by jumping into open waters, knowing that I’ll be ok.

My Biggest Fear is Not finding the main purpose & mission of my life in order to live the Life With Fulfillment … I’m already 29 years old & only now I feel that finally I’ve realized what my life mission is …

I’ve always been afraid of living very ordinary life with all monotony… both in family & career… So these days I’m desperately reading different e-books by Gurus in self-improvement to LIVE life but not let it PASS me!

I fear beginnings.

Beginning a project, beginning a journey, beginning a Daily Create . . .

How do I overcome this fear?

By jumping off a cliff.

Beginning is like jumping off a cliff or in Vonnegut’s immortal words:

“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.”

Beginnings help me earn my wings.

My biggest fear is not finding a career after graduating college. Since I was 18, I’ve always had a job, whether it was being a hostess at a sushi restaurant, an office assistant, or a consultant for a cosmetics retail store. However, a job is not a career.

My biggest fear is clown. When I was younger, I saw the movie “IT” by Stephen King, and it was the scariest movie. Since than, I’ve managed to not have a complete anxiety attack when I see one but I still get pretty clammy and nervous around them.

My biggest fear is drowning. I never learnt to swim as a child. During my first year in college, many years ago a classmate tried to teach me, but that experience I would rather soon forget. It is my plan once I graduate and become financially independent to learn how to swim.


Envy

My biggest fear is having a considerable audience.
The story to overcome this may be a further invention like a coat which protects me from realising peoples feelings too much and the same coat would protect me from realising my own feelings too much. This coat has an extra thick layer of material which keeps away envy from the people outside and from realising my own envy from the inside. The coat is able to communicate with me and tells me when he encloses me firmer for protection and when he opens up for communication and relationship if the situation is appropriate. So the coat is my friend I would call him or her Eagle for she would realize the danger of I becoming hurt with her beautiful blue and sharply outlined eyes very early and she would dive to rescue me from what ever is able of making me vanish in a cloud of unfortunate communication considering my creations.

Spiders. I have always, always, hated spiders. I’m not sure where the fear came from, why I freak out so much when the little, fuzzy, black things crawl across the walls, but I can’t stand them. I’m also pretty positive that I’ll never overcome this fear. It’s like, integrated into who I am: “Hi, my name is Tiffany Sharpe and I’m scared of spiders.”

My biggest fear, right now, is losing my husband in a car accident. Every day, when he drives off to work, I say to him, “drive safely, I love you,” then I say a little prayer that he gets to where he is going. Especially on nights like tonight when it is icy and snowy.

My dad died in a car accident. It was sudden and horrible. The images were on youtube that day. I had a hard time driving on the highway after that. Now, when I pass semis and truckers, I say a little prayer for their families that their loved one comes home to them tonight.

I know that the likelihood of another tragic car accident is small, tiny, miniscule even, but it doesn’t stop my heart from skipping a beat every now and then when I think of my family members out driving.

My biggest fear is getting eaten by a shark. This is an irrational fear, I know, especially since the only times I have actually seen sharks in person have been at the aquarium. There really is no story behind why I am afraid of them, but the funny thing is that I am also extremely intrigued by them. I love watching and learning about sharks on the Discovery Channel and I used to watch this video on sea creatures everyday when I was about 5 years old. I get a sense of fear and anxiety every time I go out in the ocean. It also doesn’t help that my family perpetuates this fear by making fun of me and lying about stories of people getting eaten by sharks.


Not living life to the fullest

Written by Keepingupwithkaitlyn on January 30, 2013 6:22 pm

My biggest fear is not living life to the fullest. While I believe I’ve done some pretty neat things in my 22 years of life so far, I feel like there is a lot I want to do and can do in my lifetime. But I worry that I am going to get caught up in everyday life and not do all or part of things I want to do in life, like travel. I’m sure this is a big one for everyone, but I really want to be able to travel to a lot of different places. I’ve been fortunate and have traveled abroad twice already, but I want to see so much more. Ways to overcome this… save money and go travel!

But there are other aspects of my life that I feel hold me back from living my life to the fullest; for example I am a a quick and reserved person and doing anything out of my comfort zone scares me! All these things are something I need to work on. Gaining more confidence to step out of my comfort zone and live a more enriching life is a start.


Growing up

I have a fear of growing up. The reason why i fear this is because of everything that comes with it. As i get closer to the last years in college i get a littler nervous. After college im expected to get a mundane 9-5, move out of my parents’ house, find life insurance, and the list goes on and on. As for trying to over come this fear? Ha, there is none. I know well enough that its inevitable. The only thing i can do it try to make the best out of it, and enjoy whoever or whatever comes along. Just have to buckle my imaginary seat belt and enjoy this crazy roller coaster.

Putting out my best work and being decidedly mediocre.
Coming to epiphanies that are nothing but regurgistated ideas from the multiple media outputs I consume, willingly or unwillingly, every day.
The desire to tell a story that comes from me and finding out its empty and void of a soul.
Am I then empty? Soulless?
So, in silence I sit – preferring mysterious and quiet.
An illusion of deepness.


Being a Half Ass

Written by @mbs on January 30, 2013 4:34 pm

I’m going to focus on a professional fear rather than a personal one because the personal is more than obvious. I fear on a minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day basis that anything bad might happen to my kids. There would be nothing worse. Period.

So to talk about that one further is way too depressing, so my other fear is being thought of as a half ass – someone that doesn’t seem to ever follow through on the big stuff, the hard stuff. I generally think of myself as creative and capable at doing many things and a good self-starter, but I struggle to maintain momentum at times when the work at hand becomes toiling. Whether my brain becomes a short attention span theatre or other things seem to hold me back it’s a struggle at times.

And I worry that I might be seen this way by colleagues.

My biggest fear is balloons. This is known as Globophobia (look it up.) I’m not afraid of aluminum balloons, but I’m afraid of the rubber ones that pop easily. This could very well be a result of my evil older sister constantly scaring me with them when I was younger; she seriously had a big bag of them that she’d blow up and stab whenever I was around! Here I am, 20 years old, and afraid of what floats around at a 5yr old’s birthday party…

Even watching this video freaks me out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8X_BPFxoGso


My golden bubble

Written by @karenatsharon on January 30, 2013 2:17 pm

When I was younger, I was afraid of making mistakes and failure. But as I grew older I realised that it was that failure, those mistakes that challenged me to be better, reach further, try harder, and do it over. When I was teaching in elementary education, I allowed my students to redo their assignments because how could they learn if they didn’t have a second chance?
As a parent, your worst fear is your fear for the health and well-being of your child. Now as I start my fifth decade of life I am afraid for my parents. I know their time on this planet is finite and so I need to cherish the time I have with them, to understand them, to know them and to support them as they move towards the end of their life. How will I cope with the loss of the two people who have always looked upon me as a sunny day, a blessing and the best thing since sliced bread? Whose voice gets a happy sound when they realise it is me on the telephone? Who continue to be parents, a constant source of support and advice, even though I am an adult?
Worse still, I look at my spouse and sometimes my love and need for him overwhelms me and I think, “How will I be able to sleep when you are gone? How will I laugh? And when I cry who will understand?” This man has known me for over 30 years and still, after all this time, worries, cares and shares with me. His loss, like the potential loss of my children, is something I normally try not to dwell on too deeply.
I have been blessed to live my life in a golden bubble of family love and approval all my life. Perhaps I am just scared that my golden bubble will do what all bubbles do….break.

My biggest fear is forgetting things. Not necessarily losing my memory, but even forgetting the simplest things. If I forget something even momentarily, I feel like I failed and that thing or memory is gone forever. It’s seems like as people grow older, they forget or lose more and more. I want to remember everything that has ever happened, because that is what makes a person who they are.

My biggest fear is roller blading, even putting me somewhere near a roller blade and I start freaking out. To overcome this bizarre phobia, I slowly find myself trying things similar to roller blading like ice skating. This summer I had to go to a roller blading rink for work, but thankfully they needed a counselor to watch over the arcade and I eagerly went to do that. It’s the baby steps that help to overcome any fear, but you can’t take steps on roller blades!

Therefore how I am overcoming this fear I am cleaning it daily and looking at it 24/7.

Crickets

My biggest fear is…crickets. I know it sounds completely irrational and silly, because it really is. I don’t know where the fear came from or why it evolved (I used to have crickets as “pets” in 2nd grade and I wasn’t scared then) but crickets scare the living daylights out of me. I’m especially terrified of a news species that I like to called “spickets.” I’m not even kidding you it is a creature with a cricket body and 8 legs. They make no sound but can jump really high like crickets. They are all over my basement and creep up on me all the time when I’m trying to enjoy TV.

ANYWHO, to overcome this fear I would probably just have to live in an apartment that is on the second floor or higher so they can’t get in. It’s strange, I’m not scared of spiders but these “spickets” really get to me. But to REALLY overcome this I would probably have to spend some quality time with them and really learn that they won’t do anything to me (I know this already but they’re just so gross).

This also goes for my fear of birds, bees and really an insect that is not poisonous.

Loose Words

My biggest fear is speaking loosly around a student. My personality is realxed, and while that helps build rapport with kids throughout the year, it is easy to forget that I am still a teacher, and that I have to filter what I say to students, even when I’m joking.

I lived in South Korea for two years, and sarcasm is not something that translated well…they just thought I was mean. I had to be very careful about making jokes that would kill here in America, because they could kill just as powerfully in Korea, but not in a joking way. I realized this when a student looked right at me once and said, “Wow, that was mean.” It wasn’t intented to be hurtful, but it was.

I have to constantly remind myself to think twice before being sarcastic with a student. They may be under a lot of stress on that day, and my words can undo the trust that I’ve built up if I’m not careful. I also ask my students to be real with me, so if I do inadvertantly hurt feelings, I can make amends quickly.

Snake Oil

Written by Ben Rimes on January 30, 2013 10:57 am
Leave a comment

My biggest fear is becoming the used car salesmen that I think I am. In my profession, teachers are the ultimate authority when it comes to working with students in the classroom, but administrators, curriculum coordinators, and others in “instructional coaching” positions like myself wield a terribly powerful influence over classroom teachers. We can state, with some modicum of authority, which paths they should be taking for their instruction to be most effective. We can point out successes among their colleagues. We can even push teachers to try new strategies, technologies, and learning tools. But at the end of the day, it’s usually not my butt that’s on the line; it’s the teachers duty to take what we can provide and make it a success, or turn it into just “one more thing” that some district wide-level employee has either mandated or asked for teachers to do.

When it doesn’t work, that’s not necessarily our fault, but when there always seems to be something new on the horizon, especially in education, eventually you develop this paranoia about your own efficacy. That maybe you’re not leading those around you to success, but you’re selling them shiny cans of snake oil, with leaky bottoms, and you’re searching for a “newer, bigger” can to help catch what’s spilling out, only the new cans are usually leaky too.

As much as I hate failure, I believe that it everyone needs to experience (from time to time) in order to become successful. Let’s be realistic, no one is perfect. Learn from failures rather than let it discourage you from trying again.

My biggest fear is finishing sentences, because once you finish it, there’s no more to say, and that’s kind of sad, the way we hastily slap on periods to justify a full thought; a thought that probably deserved more time and effort than we gave it, a thought that could have blossomed into a bigger idea, but was viciously, and prematurely silenced because we just didn’t have the time or energy to complete the process, a thought that I refuse to mangle, to this very day
