What are Your Fears ?

Recommended Posts

Are you afraid of dying alone or like @Devil-Dick Willie you have Venustraphobia the fear of beautiful women ?

What are the things that are you afraid of ? Can be a short term thing like not finding a good job to something like an Alien invasion in the future.

Interesting thread Azeem.  A true anxiety breeding ground! 

A few things scare me:

1. The logical extension of the current trend of political correctness and the supression of freedom of speech.

1a. Cotton wooling people, and telling everyone we cant say anything that might offend someone else.

2. The degradation of the attention span that is happening with a social media obsessed society.

3. My kids, - wanting them to be successful, happy, healthy, etc.

4. A prosperous economic future for a debt fueled society

 

The kids one is a good kind of worry I think. It motivates me greatly in parenthood. In some respects its marvellous worrying about them.

Spiders. 

Irrational fear of driving down a road and then having oncoming traffic randomly swerve in to me and being in a huge crash.

This probably more than anything, I wouldn't say I have any true fears personally about things in general that I can think of like dying etc or being alone, My biggest fear is for my kids and Grandkids really, for my kids I just want to know if they go out anywhere they return home safe and I do fear for the future where my Grandkids are concerned with the state of the world environment and nature etc... I wonder what kind of a world they will be growing up into the way things are going...

I have a fear  of needles, in general don't have fear of any animal or insect.

Only pussies have a fear of spiders. :219_fisherman_fishing_at_a_lake:

It would be hard o give a shit about snakes in Europe. But in Aus any snake you see is 99% likely to be in the top 10 most deadly.

I’d rather not step on one.

Move to Ireland or New Zealand then mate... You could also move to Iceland where some believe is a thriving  population of Orangutans..

I find peacocks creepy and evil and would be uncomfortable if i was locked up in a room with a male.

You're building Room 101 or something?... :P 

Anyway, the only thing that really scares me is getting a debilitating disease or a serious disability at some point of my life and not being able to take care of myself. Other than that, nothing much really. Can't think of any irrational fears; there are a few things I dislike or don't feel very comfortable with (e.g. flying, being underwater, etc.) but not to such a degree that it causes anxiety.

Heights but it depends on what it is.

If I'm on a rollercoaster sitting down and the track is underneath me, i'm fine. if the roller coaster was with my legs dangling and the track above me... nope.

Being seriously physically maimed in an accident.

A close relative dying.

Jack Hendry playing for Celtic.

Being judged or excluded by my peers.

Bringing a child into the world that might be forced to live through the collapse of global order as we know it.

 Spiders.

Edinburgh buses are surprisingly straightforward.

Losing my hearing. As I get older I have started to realize that all that loud music from my younger years and the fact that playing in a band automatically puts you in positions where you are exposed to lots of loud music does degrade your hearing ever so slowly.

Going deaf. I think I'd miss hearing music and people talking way too much and my hearing is kind of going already.

Clearly missed that one. Now I am adding old age and lack of comprehension skills to that fear list too

Heights, if I stand on top of a building I can't look down, simple as that yet when I was a kid I would climb trees etc no bother, spiders or insects don't bother me but as I mentioned in other thread was I hate ear-wigs with their bloody pinchers on their backs.

I am not afraid of dying as we all have to die someday and I have been lucky in my time doing duties in the army as being shot at, nearly blown up but I am still alive and kicking, when I do pass away I will make sure I come back as a TalkFootall365 Poltergeist and change @DeadLinesman team he likes into Liverpool and see all the mayhem it will cause. xD
