Today’s challenge is to describe 3 legitimate fears I have and how they became fears. This one is kind of tricky for me. I have been thinking all day and have only come up with one fear so far, but I will do the best I can. It seems like my fears are all summed up in one statement.
Loss of control. More than anything, I fear dying while my kids are young. What would happen to them? Nobody can parent my children the way I do. Would somebody else let my kids play the sports they want? Keep in touch with their family? Remember me?
My other fear that I can think of is a fear of failing in front of my family. I love them all so much, but sometimes I feel like we have to have the best and be the best. There’s no real reason for it. As far as I know, we aren’t in a competition. Yet, somehow I feel like if we fail and admit our failures to our extended family, then we really are failures.
I guess these are the two things that I have come up with.
What are some of your fears? How did they become your fears?
I’m afraid of spiders, being stuck in traffic under a bridge/overpass for too long (especially if a train goes overhead), and running out of Dr. Pepper.
Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I forgot the stuck on a bridge thing. I am insanely terrified! My sister can attest to that, she thought I was going to have a panic attack when we were in Florida and got stuck on the bridge!
And you are too funny! I understand the Dr. Pepper thing though, I really do get it, although my drink of choice is Mt. Dew.
