What makes you afraid? Fills your chest up tight with dread? Is it death? Spiders? Mold? Is it being alone, the dark, deep water?

I'm afraid of driving. I suppose specifically I'm afraid of *getting lost* while driving. Yesterday I wanted a frappuchino, but instead of getting in my car and driving down the street, I walked with little berry. In the heat, for two and a half miles! Just for a cold coffee drink, then two and a half miles back. Imagine what I'd do for groceries!
I've been trying to untangle my fear. I'm not afraid when I know exactly how to get where I want to go. But I'm afraid somehow I will miss a turn and not know exactly where I am
anymore. Before little berry, I was adventurous. I would drive to see pappa starbucks in the big city, I would take wrong turns just to see where I wound up. I've always been terrible with directions but this is ridiculous. It feels suffocating. Confining! There's this big huge fun city at my feet and I am going to
learn my way around.
So tell me. What are you afraid of? And what are you going to do to start overcoming it?

  1. I'm terrified of drowning... But that said, I float wonderfully so maybe this won't be an issue for me. :-) I still swim in the pool and the lake. I wear a life jacket in the lake... just in case.

  2. I am afraid of heights, maybe more like the feel of falling. I live in a medium sized height rise with 16 floors and we are up there one one of the high floors.... Not fun at first, but now I can look over the balcony... Not down though I get ill from that.

  3. Oh this is my fear too- I'm terrified of being lost in the city. I think it stems from this one time when I got terribly lost in an unfamiliar city when i was 17- I drove around for hours!
    Anyway my advice- get a GPS....my life is so much more fun since I got one and I never get lost or worry about getting lost.
