I was just curious about what everyones greatest fear is? Mine is smurfs. They're like scary little blue devils... I had a horrible nightmare about them being all over me in bed and biting me when I was younger... thanks!!

Well, if smurfs are like LilBlueSmurf, you have nothing to worry about

My greatest fear? I'm afraid to let someone love me I guess. Heck, or even like me for that matter! It's like I still don't believe someone could love/like someone like me. This is the only area I still have trouble with when it comes to my self image. But I'm happy to report I'm getting better. I'm about 85% complete again. (If that makes sense)

Oh I absolutely adore the smurfs. I can even sing the song.

My biggest fear is not being liked.

It doesn't matter if I know you or not but I get scared that you won't like me.

I read into every sentence, every word someone says and I get all paranoid about everything.

Trying my best to curb that fear but after 18 years of practice, it is tough.

Yes, i do indeed moderate this board ... but not for long

I love smurfs! And don't worry ... ThisGuy says all the time that i really am a smurf, but we think he's delirious (sp?)!!

Anyway ... my fear is of heights. And the dark, and bugs (any of them) and ... I could go on, but i have to go to school

unhappykoger,

sometimes one of the greatest fears in marital relationships is divorce. Once you are inside a happy marriage it can be hard to be outside alone.

You remind me of a friend who I grew up with in a neighborhood. She gave birth at 15 with her bf. It was unexpected. She probably needs some time to heal and I wished I could be there for her but it's been ages since we last met.

I guess I have those close feelings for her as a child. She has changed in some ways. She's quieter than she used to be. I think she has a hard time getting over them. I don't know if she is going through periods of depression, stress, or loneliness but...
she has been a real good friend.

I'm terrified of the dark. *hehe* Sounds silly coming from someone in highschool, but I really am! I'm also pretty afraid of bees and wasps- if somebody says "hey, don't move! You have a bee on you," you'd better believe I'll be up and running.

And don't even get me started on roller coasters....

well being afraid of the dark sounds fairly normal for a high schooler compared to a senior with a fear of smurfs.

thank you antonio but i was speaking more of the death of me and my husband not us splitting up. that is the last thing on my mind right now. we are quite happy at this moment (minus our few disagreements). even if me and my husband do split up these are our children and we will both see them grow up even if we are not together as a couple anymore.

I'm really afraid of being alone. I don't know why, but I always dream about people abandoning me, and I'm left all by myself. It scares me... A lot! I'm not sure why, though. Does anyone else have this fear?

I'm with Smurf and Lucky, darkness and heights. I'm also scared of ghosts. I've never seen one but I doubt they're all like Casper.

I'm terribly afraid of being alone. Not like alone physically (like I can be alone in my house and I'm fine) but I'm so terrified that one day I'll wake up that I have no one and I'm all alone. And if I'm in a place I know (like my house, some places at school, some stores at the mall) I can be alone but a lot of places I can't be. I just really really don't like it, I won't go someplace new unless I have someone I know and trust to go with me.

yeah, i'm afraid of the dark too. but only when i'm at my house. other places, i'm not as scared really anymore. it's weird...maybe i've just grown up with my fears here, and its easier to forget them when i'm elsewhere.

often when i was very small and sometimes still, i had nightmares about being very very scared, but not being able to scream. I don't know if it counts as a real phobia since i don't encounter it in everyday life, but i'm definitely afraid of it. being silenced, i guess.

I am terrified of spiders, I just can't look at them. I'm also scared about of anything dead, I can't touch anything deceased.

But for the strangest reason, I have a morbid curiosity about why people die. I read the obituaries looking for a cause as to why someone died!

I'm afraid of being alone too. It's definitely my biggest fear. Both that someday there will be no one in the world for me to talk to or love, which seems unlikely, and also that maybe no one is actually aware, or that there might never be any way of spiritually joining with someone for more than a little while, or any way of joining meaningfully with another without loss of the self. Maybe I'm really just afraid of existentialism...

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and I completely panic. It happens maybe once a year, maybe twice. When I was little I'd go wake up my parents. When I was older, I would call one of my friends, and now of course I wake up my partner. I'm not sure what I'd do if it happened and there wasn't anyone.

i'm super afraid of dying. i'm afraid of dying before i've accomplished everything i want to & made a difference in the world. i want to be able to see my future children and grandchildren grow up and theres so much more i want to do during my life and it just scares me that i might not have enough time to do it in.

In a way, I'm scared of almost everything. I'm very nervous, and I'm always worried about the littlest things.

But worries are different from fears, I guess. My greatest fears have to do with death, of course. I can't stand seeing decomposition, or really graphic violence (I hate scary movies!) I'm also afraid of mummies (and by association, many Egyptian things). I am afraid of dying, but more afraid of my love dying-- of waking up to find him dead beside me, or to come home and find his body. Sorry to be so morbid :P

Public bathrooms. Why? I don't know. In order for me to pee in one it has to be empty or have a bunch of people in it. I hate the fact that that someone hears me pee. If someone is in there with me I hold it till they leave. I'm so weird. I hate using them too. Eek! SOme people are just dirty and I hate it when they don't flush or don't wipe off the toliet seat if they pee on it. They just scare me.

Another thing, spiders! Even the smallest one sends me screaming my head off to another room.

driving.
everytime i get in the car, i start shaking and get very nervous.
i didn't get my license until last summer when i turned 18. i only got it then because i have to commute to college 20 mi. away.
may be because i've been in 4 wrecks in the past few years, but i wasn't driving in any of them.
if i don't absolutely HAVE to go anywhere, i don't, and if someone else can drive, they do.

I'm also parinoid about getting in a car crash. (I just got my license)

I panic if I think something might prevent me from breathing. I really noticed this a couple weeks ago during kayaking lessons. The most important things they teach is several ways to get yourself right-side up after you've tipped over. One thing we learned is we're suppose to bang on the bottom of our boats to get the other people's attention, then they'll bring their kayak along side our, making a T, while we wait upside down under water running our hands along the side of our boat feeling for theirs. Once they get there it's easy to grab their bow and push youself up, but the first several times I tried it I bailed out of my boat and swam for air in 5 seconds! It took a long time to learn to remain calm while upside down under water with my legs tucked in a kayak.

It didn't take long for someone to bring up pregnancy

Which is normal ... I'm terrified of that too. No matter how careful i am, it's still in the back of my mind.

And i've had nightmare after nightmare about me getting pregnant and miscarrying. Another big fear ... the reason i said i didn't want kids up until just this year

Could I just mention one more?

Rats.

I hate the damn things and I seriously have a rat phobia.

I'm sorry to those who like them but I think they are just dirty and gross. Especially the fat ones.

I'm starting to think it's coz of the Pied Piper Story.

Aww, rats are lovely!
I am truly terrified of fire. To the extent that I won't go into a room with a lighted candle. I couldn't do my GCSE chemistry coursework chemistry prperly because I was too scared to use a bunsen burner. I freak out if someone lights a match anywhere near me. And my little brother's a complete pyromaniac, which causes alot of problems! I suppose it's quite a sensible fear, cos it is dangerous, but it's getting out of hand. At least it's stopped me from taking up smoking! I have nightmares about the house burning down regularly and every time I go out I'm worried sick that there'll of been a fire when I come back. So that's my main fear. Other things, like spiders, and snakes and heights I am totally fine with, it's just fire.

Well, I realised that I hadn't posted to this topic, so I thought I would join in the fun

On the tangible level I'm terrified of wild rats (I mean rats that aren't pets) and cockroaches. Both of these make me cringe because they are such emblems of dirt and disease. Pet rats are fine, we had two in my grade one class and they don't scare me but the idea of a rat in a street or house (aaaah)scares me to death! Mice are cute and don't bother me at all. I am mildly nervous of heights but after focusing lights at 40 feet above the ground or something, I've almost gotten over that fear.

On the intangible level I think I'm afraid of rejection and loneliness (in the unloved sense). I think on a basic level that's one of the great fears of humanity, to be alone and unloved. I don't know anyone who likes being unloved.

My best mate is terrified of fish, which makes me laugh so much. She won't swim in the sea and she can't walk past a fishmongers. I don't know what it is about them, but they freak her out so much. I should be more understanding but she thinks she's really hard as well so it's funny.
