Most Helpful Girl

  • Well, basically, my life has been 41 years and 3 months of overall upward trajectory, pretty much. There've been ups and downs -- and there were years where I fought severe depression, and over 10 years of sleep deprivation so severe that several renowned medical professionals literally refused to believe the numbers -- but there hasn't really been ANY sustained interval of time where life was actually getting steadily WORSE.
    In the words of that Browning poem, it still genuinely feels that "the best is yet to come", in just about every possible way-- personally, professionally, sexually, in terms of family, health... everything.

    So... My greatest fear is that I'll actually pass "my prime" -- and actually be aware of it.
    That I'll suddenly be aware that the best times are all behind me... and that, from point X onward, it's just gna get worse.

    I have absolutely NO concern for whether I live a long life. Whenever something is reputed to "take N years off my life", my reaction is basically meh... and this is why.
    If it's N years after that point-of-no-return, then, I'll gladly trade those years for whatever I can enjoy more fully in the present.

  • As far as you are strong person and confident personality most of the above fear can't be true for you, these things can be changed by your strong will and effort, a fear is often that is uncontrolled and unstoppable and natural.
    Hence my biggest fear is my parents getting old, I always fear to lose them no matter what but as far I am alive I want to live with them I love them so much. I can live without anything but not without them. Rest of the fears are not a big deal for me, I can overcome anything.

  • Now that I think of it, it would be even worse being stabbed with needles multiple times than knifes, even though both are horrid of course arrghhhjjsjsjjs.

    Drowning by either water or burried are horrible, and being burned alive.

    Sitting in a room, while being tortured would be a horrible experience as well.

    • Have you seen Evil Dead (2012) ? The main character gets stab in the face multiple of times in the face and eye with a needle :P

  • 1. Not being able to protect my friends, family and loved ones and people close to me.

    2. Being vulnerable again like I used to be.

    3. God

    4. Being eaten alive by mice... that would just be horrifying.

  • the fear of never being good enough is the story of my life :- I'm constantly wondering if what I do and what I say is good enough. I want to please people around me, and when I fail to do that, ugh it's the worst feeling to me.
    Also the fear of being rejected - not necessarily by guys, but by people in general - being left on the side etc...
    oh and I hate crowds too. And missed calls from my mom scare the fuck out of me lol x)
