Day 10

Something I’m Afraid Of

There’s lots of things to be afraid of: Death, losing a loved one, falling terribly ill, the end of the world. We all have those fears, or at least it’s safe to say that the majority of us do.

Then there’s the little things. Some people are afraid of snakes, some people are afraid of spiders. These are the little irrational fears that we develop over whatever reason. I don’t have too many irrational fears, but there are a couple that I’ll mention:

  • Spiders. I hate them with a bloody passion. My preferred method of killing them is with the bottom of my shoe or with something with a long handle. Generally, I’ll kill them with anything I think that won’t let them crawl on me.
  • Semi trucks. There’s something about their size that scares the crap out of me. They have huge blind spots, they often drive like maniacs and they can kill you in an instant. Morbid, I know, but I just don’t like driving past them on the highway. It takes all my might just to pass them without freaking out. Now, I know not all truck drivers drive poorly, but I’ve seen enough to know that there’s a lot of bad ones.
  • Being alone. I like my quiet alone time, but the thought of actually being ALONE alone doesn’t sit well with me. I’m just glad I have an awesome family and a few great friends I can depend on.

So really, there’s not much I’m too afraid of. Heights don’t bother me, nor do snakes, the open sea or birds.

What are you afraid of?
