Well, if I’m being honest, I’m kind of a chicken. Although, I do feel myself making small changes (For example, this weekend I am going to a mini blogging conference by myself. I’m scared, but I’m making the effort to face the fear.)
Maybe one day I will become a “Yes Man” and be able to say yes to a lot more with no fear. But not today.
So here are some of my biggest fears:
Flying (aka: being crammed into a germ-infested flying tuna can)
Roller coasters (no thank you)
The thought of zip-lining (which I know I will be forced into one day)
Motion sickness (gross)
The ocean (almost drown when I was young)
Someone breaking in (am I the only weirdo that imagines this terrifying scenario??)
Losing loved ones (this is a normal one, right?)
Enclosed spaces I can’t get out of easily (planes, taxis, buses)
I mean…what a wuss, right?
Basically, I think my biggest fear, which is a cause of a lot of the things on the list above, is not having control. Losing control, putting my trust in something or someone, is what gives me anxiety. Not so much in my emotional relationships, but just in life’s physical aspects. Like I said…I’m working on it. :]
What are you afraid of? Did my list strike a couple chords or do you think I’m a big wuss? ;]
