Your Greatest Fear

Instead of reviewing something or sharing my thoughts on something today, I'd like to ask you all a question.



What is your greatest fear and how do you react to it? Other than my curiosity, I don't really have a reason as to why I'd like to know.

To be fair, I'll share my fears and why! I am primarily afraid of two things, and they're both fairly irrational fears. I can't stand mold, and I don't like high edges. The high edges seems a bit less irrational simply because falling off the edge could kill me. The mold is definitely irrational, though.

Why am I afraid of mold? I think it stems from a traumatic (if you could call it that) childhood experience. I had somehow managed to take two pieces of bread out of a bread bag and begin eating half of them before realizing they were mostly dark green. Just the thought of it makes my hands begin to sweat.

So yeah! What is your greatest fear, and what is your reaction when you encounter it?

  1. My greatest fear is losing the people that I love. I have worked very hard in my life to be sure that my loved ones are safe and taken care of, so my greatest fear is that I will see all of that work come crashing down around me, leaving those people defenseless.

  2. My greatest fear is to grow old and become a burden on the people I love.

    Ugh.. I don't know how to deal with it so until I get older I think I will not think about it :P

  3. Well, I won't say I am fearless, but right now I am feeling good and I don't think this will change so soon ... losing friends, etc. is a "common fear", so I won't but this either here :p

  6. I have a fear of sleeping next to window since a few years ago. Had a dream one night of soccer, and woke up with a broken toe. Cracked and part popped underneath it. Lost playing sports for that year. Still can't bend that toe.

  7. My greatest fear have been spiders, but since I moved to a house full with spiders (well, not nowadays but back then) I have got to know them better. xD

    I still get afraid when I see a huge spider that have a fat body or long legs, eehhhh, getting chills.

  22. I'm honestly afraid of driving home at night and having to walk the ~20 steps from where I park my car to my front door, all because there was a pack of deer sitting on my front lawn that scared me one time a while back.

    Also, I hate horror films.

  27. My greatest fear is the future... and UFOS. I dont even kill spiders, i mean, insects own this planet. World have more insects then humans, so, we live in their world, not the oposite.

    maybe being trapped in a really tiny place. But then again I've learnt to control myself not to panic.

  30. Germs because I work in healthcare and know that I can never ever be rid of germs. And spiders because they have to many skinny legs and are just creepy
