I am afraid of heights. It makes me nervous looking down when im in a high bridge. My husband is helping me to conquer it. Last week, i ride in ferris wheel 60 metres tall for 15 minutes. That was nice, and i realized it wasnt scary at all. Tell me, whats your fear? Do you want to conquer it?

My biggest fear was flying in an airplane. I moved from Ny to miami and flew all the time. so now I still have some fears left but many of them I took control over. like going up or down hills. Now I don't panic any more. Being in crowded spaces I will try for a few minutes.

my biggest fear is sea . One time me and my friends going to vacation Going in Mindoro Where in Puerto Galera. We stay for about 3 days. They decided to go to an island near in the beach we stayed so they rent a motorboat we are five 3 girls and 2 boys except of the two men driving the boat so its around one thirty pm that time. Even I don't want to go their coz honestly I don't know how to swim I don't want them to say I'm kill joy so we go there. Going ahead to the island i observe a big tide almost sink our boat god i thought its my last breath. From that day i said no more vacation like this i hate it . When they ask me to going beach or resort go swim no way much better staying at home.

My greatest fear is not to be appreciated or being rejected.I don't know how to conquer it but I'd like to pull myself up back faster.

Dying before I tell the world the truth of YAHVAH (GOD). That is my biggest fear, brainplusbeauty09. I have made so many mistakes that I wish I could go back and fix them all. I would go on that mission, and continue doing the will of YAHVAH. Have a great day. :)

I do have fears of snakes and heights, every time the light bulb is broken I need to change it I feel so scared, there's no ladder in my house, so I need to put a square stool on the desk, then I climb to the stool, that's very fearsome.

I also have a few fear although they are quite common to people and they are not that extrme like phobias. I think my main fear is being alone someday and having no one to be there for you. Maybe because i just think too much nowadays and that instead of enjoying my life while i'm still young i worry a lot about the future. Although i'm not worried if ever i would reach old age I would still prefer living alone rather than have someone who would make my life miserable for a lifetime. I think there's no way of conquering such fear because we really don't have any control with other people, although people are quite good a making promises we could still not trust a person 100percent because trusting someone too much would just lead to disappointments and we have no right to foce people to keep the promises they make because it is also not a contract where in we could run after the one who agreed to it. Happy mylotting.

I am afraid of heights too, but I am more scared by darkness. When the night comes, if there is no light, I would feel thrilling and unsafe, and always feel there is someone somewhere. So I do not watch Horror films, read Horror books,listen to Horror stories. As long as I hear a little something horrible, I would have nightmare that night. I am not sure this is a disease. My boyfriend took me for the doctor, but all is normal, nothing wrong. The doctor says maybe it is because I experienced horrible things when I was young, but I can not remember. Anyway I should follow what doctor suggests that I should have more rest, and do not think much.

I have a fear of close spaces and dark environment, tho i sleep with my lights off at night. haha! I just realize it wasn't just a fear, it is a phobia called claustrophobia. It is an anxiety disorder I had since I was 6 years old, it is an irrational fear that I would not be able to escape or being closed in. Apparently I have not resolved it completely by trying to close myself in a very small room or something like having a shock treatment.. I tried but it wasn't gone completely, anyway, I'm happy now that I am able to lessen the fear gradually.

I am afraid of heights as well. Last month I came up to 3 meter tower to fix water container. When looked down, my feet were wobbly, I was scared. Then I tried to convince myself and stopped looking down. It got better, and my fear lessened.

Height is one of the matter that i fear to, but instead of height, i am more fear on cockroaches This little cockroach really make me scare enough, and i found most of my family members also scaring on it. Is this due to genetic reason?
