Mine personally would have to be spiders. I HATE spiders i can barley look at them and trying to crush takes me a lot of strength. My sole reason why is when I was young I crushed one and it had babies on its back which made hundreds of them flee across my house. What are some things you are truly scared of?
Someone close to me dying.
Being alone my entire life.
Large bodies of water.
Wrecking my car.
Probably a million other things.
Losing whomever I love. What could be worse? It's also a very visible fear. I wear it on my sleeves, it's knit into my knickers and makes my hair more wavy, hipster-wavy, whatever shampoo I use. It's in all the little gestures: holding a cup, passing by, tying your laces. I fear to jump from a high building with laces untied. It would mean I lost my love. I'm dead either way, but a dead lover: that's worse. It's readable in his every piece on the pavement. Poor passers-by.
I'm actually completely fine with spiders. The one thing that I do hate is bees. I live in Seattle and once it gets over 75 degrees it's WAY too hot for my blood. In a situation like that, most people would keep the windows open. I can't because bees are attracted to me for some reason. So, basically, I'm living in a furnace and bees suck. That is all.
Heights, I hate them so much. It peaked after I went to the Sears/Willis Tower and went into that damn "Sky Box" where the only surface you have beneath you is a piece of glass. If that thing breaks, you are good as dead, but apparently it can hold alot of weight, so I decided to give it a try. I'm never doing it again >_>
Reasonable fears or irrational fears?
Reasonable fears would include great heights, big spiders (small ones don't phase me, it takes about an inch in diameter to frighten me, unless of course it's a black widow or brown recluse), being trapped in a small space (claustrophobic), burning alive,
Irrational fear would be crazed maniacs with power tools trying to murder me, and torture in general
being savagely murdered
being "left behind" (I don't even know what that's supposed to mean, but I've had several dreams where I'm "left behind" and they scared the shit out of me)
babies in utero
Contact with other people.
Nah, just kidding. Truthfully, I'd have to say the ocean, mainly because I almost drowned a while back when I was on holiday, since I tried to swim out to an island while I was heavily drunk. Totally my fault, but yeah.
Damn, spider and really most weird bugs in general. I can handle common insects like ants or bees or stuff like that, but when you get into beetles or cockroaches and stuff like that, I just can't leave it alone. I have to kill it because I don't want to leave it there to multiply or bad stuff like that in my house while I'm sleeping.
Lol at the above spider picture. I shit myself however because the song I was listening to randomly knocked and I thought it was the spider :/ Fehh I just got out of bed.
Mine has to be - Clowns. I used to have a weird (really gay) fear of blood :P Though I grew out of it.
Im not really bothered by spiders but if one tried to get on me, that would be it :)
(Fears of death and losing people you love are normal, unless you have panic attacks about it daily and stuff :/)
