So what is it that you are most afraid of? Is it a thing? A place? An emotion? Impending doom/appocolypse? What is it that has you "shake'n in yer boots"? What is holding you back? etc. Dig deep for this one! Dissposition

I fear being alone as well. being left behind everyone. It can easily happen in this fast ever changing world. Someone who is alone for a long time can find it amazingly difficult to begin to rebuild their life and reintergrate into society.

my deepest fear in this life is sharks. I've had nightmares about them since childhood. I have a huge fear of being in the ocean swimming because of them. It's completely unreasonable because the liklihood of my ever being out in the middle of the ocean afloat and praying desperately to be ignored by the local carniverous population is slim o none. Still, it's my fear. Also, am afraid of snakes.... come near me with one and I'm liable to kill someone. God, I get shivers just thinking about them!

I keep coming back to this topic but I'm not sure how to answer ... I suppose my deepest fear is becoming more disabled and not being able to cope on my own ... it's a bit of a struggle keeping everything clean in the house and if it wasn't for online shopping and grocery stores I doubt I would manage .. Yes .. I am afraid of where I shall have to go if I can no longer cope ... with no familt to help I will have to rely on going wherever the State sends me ... not a pleasant thought ...

Unhappiness with no sign of it ending, usually does it for me. I am afraid of something bad happening and my kids being homeless, of my giving up on my boyfriend and loosing our home, tempting just lately, but never mind, I'll survive and he just might, maybe. I'm scared of living my life doing things other people want or need me to do and missing out on all my dreams. I'm terrified every day that my newty dog, now 13 will become ill or die, I wake up in the night to check she is ok. I worry that my 7 year old with Autism and ADHD will miss out on so many things he could enjoy and that every cold that my 3 year old gets will bring his pneumonia back and he will go back into hospital. Being eaten by monsters doesn't really bother me as long as it doesn't hurt too much, lol

I neither fear from spiders nor cockroaches. I can be in my house alone whole night even if its dark, electricity has gone. I don't fear any thing, place, emotion, impending doom/appocolypse, "shake'n in yer boots". But I fear from my DAD lol!

I have nursed loved ones throgh cancer and recovery, heart attack recovery, a friend with stomache cancer, thrombiphillia and others....I would meditate and tell my inner me that the more i face these illnesses and the more I helped people through them that I then become IMMUNE to it. I REALLY BELIEVE THIS, WE HUMANS POSESS THIS AND MANY OTHER POWERS...people who heal become vessels of health...and you my friend heal people everytime you teach...I think you will be just fine! peace Dissposition

Me having to stay far away from my near and dear is the biggest fear. I always would like to hang around my family all the time.

oh i am so paranoid about getting hurt. like, everyday I go to work and I have to pass by some trees with knee-high wrought iron fences around them. the tips of the fences were perfectly blunt, you see, but i can always see myself tripping over and getting impaled on one of them. i could never look at gory scenes on moives because they would haunt me for a long time--i could always imagine i was the one being tortured. i hate to walk by the knife section of the department store because somehow i'm sure i'm gonna get cut on one of those. there's an emergency axe hanging inside a glass case in our building and i never stand by it because i could just imagine it falling and chopping out my toe. i'm so afraid of physical pain but they often come to me in vivid, cinema-style images in my head. my ex told me to quit reading stephen king.

My only fear is losing one or both of my kids...I've already buried one child and it was the most horrible heart tearing experience i've ever gone through and wouldnt wish on my worst enemy....to lose one or both of my other children after having them in my life this long would definately put me over the edge with no hope of coming back....

Everybody laughs at me when I tell them what my biggest fear is because it is one of the most harmless things in the world. My biggest fear is butterflies. I don't know why, but the just scare me so much.

My absolute worst fear is of spending the rest of my life alone. I really don't have any desire to spend the rest of my life on this planet without a partner. I have always longed for love. I am not sure that anything else plays on my mind more than worrying that I will not find that person before I become too old. Not that I think that there is any age limit. It just seems to me that it gets harder as one gets older to get out there and meet people. Of course, the internet makes things easier in some respects. I don't know. Nevermind me, I'm just having a very blah day. LOL... sigh.
