Yes ... that, @j95!

 

Now that we have spoken about recent things fear stopped us from doing, what do you think you are afraid of happening?

 

Although, just quietly, I think @Ben-RO already has this covered.

Ages ago I used to work a 5 minute drive away and if I hadn't left by 12 minutes to the hour I would start stressing out

Ah I'm so bad at being late too, even when it's really important.

I think there's lots of things that have been mentioned already for this one. I think we can all be afraid of things like embarassment, rejection, getting hurt and more specific stuff like thinking you could fall from a height.

I'm still late to things! Still not used to public transport running on time! It is crazy, who knew such a payment system would be so successful at making buses run on time?

Depending on what type of fear it is, I think we're afraid of things because of potential negative consequences. Like I am afraid of spiders in case I get bitten or one crawls on me or appears somewhere I don't want it. On a bigger scale, certainly for me, a lot of my fears and sometimes avoidance is because of perfectionism and insecurity and a fear of messing up and not being good enough. I'm so afraid of doing something wrong that sometimes I don't do anything at all.

@stonepixie well kind of although i am really interested to hear about fear when the fear doesn't quite make sense when you stop and think about it. Like for example I am irrationally scared of Leaches. Like.... just nope. Even though i know that really if i ever did get a leach on me, i'd just use a bit of salt and then I wouldn't have a leach on me anymore. But the level of fear i have of that happening would make you think that i was going to lose a leg a leach got on it... I know that won't happen, I know I can just deal with it, but that doesn't stop me being terrified. It's weird.

@Randomness I have dealt with that fear in the past too. Not fun, huh.
