I'm afraid of heights. I'm also afraid of what may lurk in the dark. Even afraid of losing my girlfriend. I'm human, we have fears. What you afraid of?

I am terribly afraid of rodents, mice and rats. I also have a large fear of snakes, as I was tortured by my big brother and his friends with snakes as a small child. I like squirrels, but only from a long distance. For some strange reason if I am close to a squirrel it will run straight at me scaring the daylights out of me. I often wonder if rodents, like dogs, can sense the fear of humans.

Sorry to hear about your brothers being mean like that. Maybe your fear of snakes is just something that came with a repressed memory of being tortured. As for rodents, I don't know if they can smell fear, but it's squirrel. Maybe it was being territorial over a nest of seed or nuts it was harvesting. Lol. Kind of funny to hear that you get scared at squirrels, but I'm not trying to laugh at that. It just interests me, that's all. (:

It's okay, I laugh at all of my fears but only after I am away from the rodents LOL I once conquered my fear of rats for a few minutes while holding one for a girlfriends child. Ah, the things one will do for love

Not gaining God's approval.

Of course. To be approved of, and recognized as a good person is also a fear. Even if its God himself, you are wanting to be approved by. Thanks for your response. ;D

I always thought God's approval was automatic, that you would have to work at getting his disapproval

I thought quite the opposite. But I'm not a religious person, so I wouldn't know. Lol.
