5 Things That Scare Me

Driving Up Hills

I’m so scared of driving up hills. I have a ‘98 Toyota Camry and I probably need new tires, but every time I drive up a hill, my tires scream at me like I’m crazy. Sometimes Charlie my car just sits there screaming at me for climbing up a hill. This only happens if I stop on a steep hill and I have to keep climbing. Now when I’m driving straight up without having to stop, I can feel the strain. I just hope that we make it up the hill. Yes, I probably need to flush my engine and get an oil change, but let’s be real. Even with that, my car is old and I’d probably still be scared. I’d say it’s in pretty good shape, but remember 1998 was 18 years ago. That’s 40 in car years lol. I’m scared Charlie will get mad at me and roll back down. But so far, he just screams at me.

Losing Someone Close To Me

My family has been very fortunate to not have lost too many people. And because of that, I am extremely scared to lose someone. I know it happens and it will eventually happen, but I can’t handle it. Just writing about it makes my heart heavy. Last year was the first time I’ve experienced grief. My grandpa on my mom’s side passed away from cancer. It was a long battle and we all knew it was coming but it was all new to me. New to my cousins. New to my family. We lost someone close and there is no amount of preparation for that. Since my grandpa’s passing, I’ve noticed my fear of losing a family member (mom, dad, sister, etc.) has deepened. I try not to think/talk about it because I instantly start to cry.

Closed Confined Places

Ok I wouldn’t consider myself claustrophobic but I could easily freak out if I think about being in tight places for too long. Let’s take an airplane for example. I’m not scared to fly. I’ll get on a plane right now. But if I think about being in the air for so long with no actual fresh air, breathing in people’s farts and morning breath, not being able to walk outside, sitting in one position for so long and standing up to a ceiling that’s not that high freaks me out a bit. Then there’s the part of knowing you’re 10,000ft in the air with nothing but land or ocean below you. Oh my! Sorry if you’re reading this in an airport lol. You’ll be fine and enjoy your trip!

Disease

I’m so scared of falling sick. I’m scared of these super diseases. They’re getting stronger and more powerful. We’re always hearing about some new virus that such and such. I want to talk about STDs though. It’s scary how common STI’s/STD’s are and how many different kinds! Some are curable, thankfully. But there are some that aren’t curable, that’s the scary part. What’s even scarier is that you can be as cautious as possible but there are some STD’s/STI’s that you can catch even if you’re being careful! When I say careful, I mean wearing condoms and checking your partner. Your partner may not even know they have something. That’s why it’s so important to get regularly tested for EVERYTHING anyway. Even then sometimes false negatives occur and people can be a carrier of something without showing signs or symptoms. It’s so scary. Honestly, just thinking about it is the best birth control, sex control, everything control!!

Failure

I’m scared of failure. I’m scared that I may be dreaming too big and I’ll jump and fall flat on my face. How do you know if your dreams are too big? Or unrealistic? Do you find out after you fail? I’m not scared enough to quit though. I refuse to quit. I try to redirect my thinking because your thoughts follow you. I watched this documentary in high school and it changed my life. It’s called The Secret. It’s on Netflix and Amazon. It’s pretty much about the Law of Attraction. What you surround yourself with, the people, your thoughts, will attract the things that happen in your life, the people you meet, and the way you feel. So anytime I start having these doubtful or negative thoughts, I redirect my thinking to something positive. After watching this documentary and seeing how true it is from my own experiences, I always tell people to speak things into existence. It works. It’s the Law of Attraction. You guys should watch it and tell me what you think.

What scares you guys?
