My Fears

I am afraid of failing as Gwen’s guardian.  I want Gwen to be a happy and fully functioning adult.  What I teach her or don’t teach her now will help determine her future.  That’s not something to be taken lightly.

I am afraid of losing my loved ones.  I have lost a lot of people in my life (family and friends).  I’ve attended way to many funerals.  If my mom sleeps late, I check on her to make sure she is still breathing.  I’m not ready for another funeral.

I am afraid of cockroaches.  I am fine with snakes and spiders.  I don’t have any problems with mice or rats.  However, cockroaches are another story.  If a roach comes near me, I will scream like a girl and start shaking all over my body.

What are some of your fears?  Let me know in the comment section.

  1. A thought provoking post Lynn. My greatest fear is losing my mind. They can take away the rest of my body, but as long as the brain is still creative and functioning I will be happy. Have a great day 🙂

  2. My Fellowship Friend would say that fear is not an option. GOD has not given us a spirit of fear, but HE has given us a spirit of power and love and…a sound mind. I’m not sure if that applies to cockroaches…lol…Accepting the plan that GOD has can eliminate a lot of fear. Again…may not include cockroaches! Do what is good and right and just squish those roaches!

    I’m afraid of doing new things, talking to new people, anything out of my ordinary routine. But once I do those things or talk to those people, the fear is gone…and I wonder what I was so afraid of??

  3. Hmmm, don’t like spiders, snakes, mice, rats, or roaches. Interesting enough is that roaches lived over thousands of years ago. So what makes us think we can eradicate them.
    I am also afraid of drowning ( never learned how to swim), being caught in a burning building, and probably a couple more scenarios.
    So, I think about funny and crazy things instead which keeps me in fantasy land.

  4. Those really giant hornets give me the shivers. I imagine I’d scream if one landed on me, and I have certainly been chased across the yard a time or two. I’ve never been stung by one, but judging by how mean they look, I imagine it would be a pretty nasty sting. Just being near one gives me the shivers and makes my hair stand up.

  5. I am afraid of myself, but Myself says he is s good man. I don’t believe it so every morning when I look at the mirror I say: I know you…I know you…
    Sometimes I am afraid of my dog. She stays looking at me for severals minutes while I’m watching the TV and believe me, she intimidates me ! She doesn`t like movies about monsters perhaps, so I turn off the TV. 🙂
