What scares you?


New Member
Short answer: The dark.

Long answer: Being in a large, dark area, like a hallway or an auditorium. You have no idea where you are... or what might be in that area with you. And you won't know until it's too late, whether that means bumping your knee on some furniture or being snatched up by some bogeyman. Who knows what could happen in the dark?

Wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets, mainly. They're, like, evil personified, and the only thing that can cause me to freak out on sight.

Coming in close second are very sharp objects. Fuck X-Acto knives.

My biggest realistic fears are of being eternally alone, losing someone close to my heart and their memories, and being rejected or discarded by those I love (and after barely getting through these last two do I never ever want to go through that again).

However, one thought that I sometimes reflect on, often when thinking about the universe, physics, the fabric or system behind existence, time and space, etc.; I am afraid of being caught in some cataclysmic distortion, corruption, or failure, and having my 'soul' destroyed, warped, severed, or isolated in an eternal void. It is a complicated thought to express, and oh, am I terrified of it. I cannot imagine a worse fate to be imprisoned to.
There are many things out there that worry me like, flying-stinging insects, extreme heights, deep water, fish hooks, but I wouldn't say I am afraid of them just appropriately apprehensive. The thing that really scares the hell out of me, and keeps me up at night, is the thought that I might not really be what I think of myself as. I like to think that I am good, kind, and/or compassionate person, but I can't think of a time where I really had to push myself to hold up my ideals. Sometimes I worry that I might just be a coward.

The vast majority of assholes in this world go their whole lives without once questioning their belief that they are good and decent people. Whatever else you may be, at least you're smart enough to reflect on yourself critically.

everyone in generl


I no longer have fear as an irrational part of me.

The only instinctual fear-like thing is being in water that is open or I cannot see.
I do not view this as fear, for it is far too logical.

I can be scared, though whether that will be something I allow from now on in my life is a question that I have not yet tested the answer for.

But there are no fears.

I don't want to be alone, but that's not an active fear anymore because I feel I have more friends now than I ever have.

-Going to the dentist, which I do when is needed but I feel like curling into a ball and hiding every time.

-Heights, which includes planes but I don't let it stop me from flying because I don't want to miss out on what flying enables me to do.

-Ceasing to exist, it seems that there should be a re-spawn button after a certain amount of time, but nope, and that's terrifying pondering how long your game over truly goes on for.


That I'll always feel as alone as I have up until now. Also leeches, wasps, bees, mosquitoes, etc.
Huge fear of the dark, open spaces, being alone, and of falling.
Extending from the falling fear, heights, flying, and elevators. God I hate elevators.


I am scared of height and flying with planes because i once flew to french and it was horrible.

And iam also scared of huge empty holes and void and sea.


Lost in the Static
I fear losing the ones I love, both friends and family.

Spending the rest of my life alone. That's my biggest fear at the moment.

Otherwise it's only minor things. If there's a thunderstorm while I'm in bed, I get anxious. I'm perfectly fine elsewhere.

Dreaming of tornadoes. Nothing scares me more in a dream than a tornado!

Obvious answer is death. Not so much death itself, just the long drawn out process. When it's my time to go I hope it's quick. I'm petrified to go over the course of months/years with my mind clear as to what's happening.

Not obvious answer, my overall happiness in life. I'm about to start a second career after giving up on my first choice relatively quickly. I'm 28 and the thought of working one job for the rest of my life is scary. I know I love the career choice now, but who's to say at 45-50 I'm still happy? I can't exactly get back into my original field then. I just don't want to resent myself and hate my working days when I'm older. That to me is more frightening than death.

I kinda feel the same way. But instead I try to look at my career simply as a way to make a living. As long as I don't hate my job, it's fine in my book. That gives me the money to do what I like when I don't work.

Google is your friend.

this is the litany against fear

"I must not fear.Fear is the mind-killer.Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.I will face my fear.I will permit it to pass over me and through me.And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

but i see you read his sons "books"
