Its decision making which really make me fear.i will confuse myself ..thinking all the time before i had to make up my mind to decide on an important issue.I will fear for the effect it can cost on others.I tend to control and try to be cool but iam unable to follow up.I feel i surely need to find solution for this fear.

I'm not saying you do this but generally people who fail say half-hearted things like : . I will give it a try . I will see if it works . I will give it a shot . I have nothing to lose . I haven't put much into it anyway

Since then I'm always afraid of the dark. I shudder at the thought of seeing or being alone in an unlit room. I don't know how am I going to overcome this fear.

I am a normal human being and I fear lot many things. Out of those many things, mostly I am afraid of not getting attention as I am a kind of person who likes to seek attention of the people. Liar are they who say that they dont fear as was claimed in one of the commercials. It says, "Dar sab ko lagta hai aur gala sab ka sukta hai".

I am not afraid of the unknown and take surprises pretty well. However,I can't honestly say that I don't fear failure and the feelings that accopany fear.The best way that I know to overcome my fears is preparation.When I commit myself to preparation I have less time to fear and when fear tries to paralyze my mind,I reason with fear.I try to assess if I could gain anything at all from fearing .I find the exact reason for fear by writing down what's causing it and then by writing down the possible solutions I take the best route.However, there are times when fear inspiration might work to keep you going .In those times,I make fear my friend to propel ahead.

I wish I were a person who did not fear failure but I just managed a huge failure and I don't know what comes next. Fear of the unknown would probably be my next fear.

sometimes I think that the human condition is something that almost sets us up in some way to fail. We all compare ourselves to one another, we all set ourselves goals, often impossible ones, things that we would like to achieve, people we would like to be like, to emulate only to be disappointed when we don't achieve them. I fear being alone, I fear being without any money, I fear a great deal, but I am also happy with a great deal as well.

I am scared of failure. That really holds me back sometimes, but I think it's because I want stability. I don't have anything to fall back on, so I play it as safe as I can.

The only fear I have is of myself-because it's true that we each are our own worst enemies. If you spend your life in fear, you'll never get anywhere.

Yes those are very much a legitimate fear for a human being....Me too do suffer from those. In fact I can remember, sometimes in the past I felt like getting cripppled with these & doing nothing....But slowly as I grew up, the realization dawned into mind that, failure is a part and parcel of the big game (called LIFE) we play day in and day out...thats the rule, its not a big deal if we fail, despite the ill feeling and embarassment intially, things get sorted out and we jump into our game of life once more. ...No big deal...It had been happening from many centuries and will continue till humanity lasts here on this planet..... Also, I feel whatever we do ultimately (irrespective of what we think or adviced by others to do) AND whatever happens as an out come of our action is actually the best for us ultimately...might look bit gloomy or depressing sometime initially,...but on the long run one would feel that, the so called failure has opened us new avenues, new opportunities or way of thinking....At least we can become wiser....by our mistakes...

I have a massive fear of rejection, I honestly feel this makes me super shy and paranoid, sometimes I dont know if people genuinely like me or if they are just having a laugh....i also have a fear of commitment....

Earlier in my life I had this fear of failing so I never attempted some good things in my life.But now somehow I have conquered my fears and live every moment of life. The fear which was more dominant was that what will happen to me in my old age will I have money to do things, now I have saved enough and now I do not have that fear as well.

I think I could fall under all of those fears. I hate not knowing where I'm going to college yet. I hate not knowing everything that I'm going to do. I def. HATE being rejected too. I wish I would have started planning earlier and now I'm more stressed out because I don't have as much time to plan my future. It is VERy scary

I have grown out of most of my fears. I have come to the conclusion that there is nothing really to be afraid of. There will be times where life will be rough and their will be times that it is easy. So life doesn't scare me as much as it once did. Now if we get onto the subject of heights, that's a different story. I cannot be any place that is really high up. Always afraid of falling. As long as my feet are firmly planted on low lying ground I will continue to be a happy camper.

My fear is one you haven´t mentioned. It´s becoming dependent on people, for example if I become seriously ill and would have to rely on others for things like going to the toilet, having a bath, a.s.o. I´m not afraid of the unknown (actually find it stimulating)or of being rejected.

I think at various spheres of life I have faced one or the other fear. Am i making a mistake, will I be dejected or will I be able to do it. This happens, I think with everyone of us. Thats why this is life, I guess.
