Blog Every Day in May [Day 7]


Day 7, Tuesday: The thing(s) you're most afraid of.

No pictures, because then I'll scare myself.

1] Death
Thinking about death, scares me to death, figuratively. Being a Christian, I believe in Heaven and I believe that accepting Jesus [along with other things] is the ticket to those pearly gates. However, I have not met anyone who has gone to Heaven and returned to tell me about it. The unknown of our spiritual world scares me to know end. I have faith, but that doesn't make it any less scary.

2] Snakes
This fear is almost to the point of a phobia. I am so scared of snakes. Not, I don't like them, not they give me the heebie jeebies, I LITERALLY FEAR THEM! I even hate cartoon snakes, I look away when they show up in Disney movies. Don't even get me started on nature channel snakes, ugh! Friends like to play tricks on me, and I've almost fought someone because they tricked me. I'm pretty sure if I were to see one in real life, I'd have a panic attack.

3] The Dark
I don't like not being able to see, so the dark is not my friend. When I sleep I LOVE the dark, but walking a dog in the dark, coming into my apartment in the dark, no thank you. I know nothing is hiding in the dark to hurt me, but the childish fear has stuck with me to this day.
 
4] Family members passing away before me
I have awoken in a dead sweat and unable to move after dreams of my family members dying. I know they are just dreams and I KNOW they hold no truth to what actually happens in life, but that doesn't make the thought less scary. I literally think I would die if something were to happen to those I love.

I fully understand your fear of snakes. I can't even look at them either.

OMG. #1 and 4 are the same for me. Is it weird that I think snakes are cool? :S

You and me both on the fear of snakes - I can't even see one, I will have a panic attack!

2 & 4 scare me so much. I seriously don't know how I would cope without my loved ones. My family is what I live for!

Snakes don't bother too much me but bugs... eek!

I am afraid of death, too, but losing family members before me is much more terrifying, I think. I don't want to be the one left behind...

I second everything on your list! And just thinking about snakes gave me chills! Yuck!
