  • Loneliness, fear of being emotionally alone, fear of being left behind, fear of nothing mattering.
    For me, at least, the older I get, the more I realize that no achievements in life are worth anything and no pleasure is derived from anything, if you can't share the experience with someone else. So, calling it a fear might not be completely accurate, but the fear of not being able to become happy due to a lack of people to share things with, seems very real to me.

  • Change and the future.

    My siblings will be moved out rather soon, I'll be attending college, getting a place of my own, etc. So much is going to start rapidly changing and I'll admit, I'm scared of change.

    • You would be insane not to, I'm 25 and I still have to wing it sometimes, dont be afraid of the big jump, just pick a direction when your feet hit the ground.

    • Changes can be scary or even overwhelming but just like the future, they are always rewarding.

      ••An example?••

      When we are opening our birthday presents we don't know what we will get.. or when we feel the butterflies before knowing our crush likes us back..

      ••(It's the same, really. )••

      We feel anxious and excited, scared but eager to see what's the next step!

      《And when we get that perfect gift or find out the guy likes us, it's a change that starts a new and exciting future!》

  • Displeasing GOD, missing Heaven, hell, the safety of my family during the coming times, being backed into a corner, my health, not finding the people I am looking for in this life, how to make ends meet.

    • You do not understand what happened or why, nor do you understand what is or is not wise.

    • Haha okay then

  • Nope. As you get older you fear less because of experience. You realize that you don't give a shit about what other people think about you. And that their opinion never mattered in the first place.

  • Two things:

    -Heights. I hate heights now, didn't care when I was younger.

    -Getting Axed from my job. As a high income mid life white male I know I have a target on my back for cost cuts. I also know that new jobs at a similar income are difficult to get as employers rather younger people that they can pay dramatically less.

  • After all these years i am finally pursuing my dream and passion i guess i fear of not succeeding but i am not really teasing that cuz i. realize i dont want to die knowing i didn't try cuz what else in life do we really have , being negative to myself is wasted energy , it gets you know where. None of us are perfect people are brains can easily Trap us into a. routine and make us feel stuck but are brains can also make us do Amazing things if we step out of that routine

  • An unfulfilled failure, living month to month in a precarious job that I hate - if I can get a job - while living a lonely, loveless existence in a shitty apartment as I watch the sands of time fall closer and closer towards my inevitable death.

    • You are very nice looking l understand

    • @laurenok Do you have a career that requires good and young appearance? It's really a difficult thing for us girls to see ourselves aging, noticing the first gray hair or wrinkle..
      However we need to remember fear of age is possibly a media influence... and that with the wrinkles come wisdom, success and RETIREMENT!🤣💋
