So, I, overall, am a pretty confident person, pretty brave, the usual recklessness. Even the brave have fears.
The first fear I have is rather common, it’s arachnophobia. (Fear of spiders). I’ve never been bitten by one, or anything else like that (never been bitten by any animal, actually), they’ve always just been creepy to me. (Maybe it’s the eyes?)
The next fear is a bit weirder, the fear of looking people in the eyes. Or the face in general. I don’t have social anxiety, and I am definitely socially awkward. I talk to people every day, but I just can’t look people in the face. It’s unnerving.
This next phobia sort of ties into the last one, it’s the fear of relationships, or being in a relationship. Just the idea of having to focus so much of your time into one thing is just terrifying.
Now my next fear is a bit weird, it’s the fear of silence. I’m not sure why I’m so afraid of the silence, I just am.
Now onto the last fear I will be covering, it’s the fear of abandonment. I have this deep-seeded fear of being abandoned by the ones I love and/or care about. While I might know the reason for this it’s just annoying, this fear can make me seem clingy to people. If I’m having a conversation through texts with someone and they don’t reply for a few minutes I will immediately assume they left me for someone/something else.
Not sure how all of this ties together but it feels nice to get all of this off of my chest.
