What Frightens You?

What the title asks.

Hm... well for me I have two.

The first time I drove on the freeway was kind of scary for me because, well it was my first time, I didn't know what to expect. And I was really worried about merging on. But now I've been on the freeway quite a few times. It's not scary anymore, in fact I like driving on the freeway now.

The second thing is, my biggest fear is heights. Especially the heights on theme park rides. As much as I love theme park rides... being up so high in the air scares me. I hate that empty feeling my stomach gets Been trying to get over that fear since I was 9... have I gotten over it at all? Nuuupe.

So answer away!

Re: What Frightens You?

Well, diving head first was probably the most dangerous and scary thing I've done. That, and leaving my eyes open underwater in chlorinated waters. Not very healthy.

As for fears. The only fears I think of are the excellent Toad the Wet Sprocket album, and Tears for Fears. I'm not fearless, per say. I just don't know what I fear.

Re: What Frightens You?

When I was in school, my friends convinced me to join a Future Teachers thingy (I forgot the exact name). They wanted me to follow them to Anchorage, and hang out with other people from the state that also joined.

Well, right off the bat, all of us were in a room, and they MADE us get into random groups. It felt weird being with people I didn't even know, we had to do a presentation and all, in front of a lot of people.


I'm terrified of heights, my friends joke around all the time about it. For some damn reason, I still climb ladders that are probably at least 30 feet high (which is high to me). The scariest part for me is actually going down, and also looking down from a high place, scares me badly

Re: What Frightens You?

Driving! I hate it. I hate the fact that even one small mistake while driving can cause a huge disaster! I really want to learn how to drive on the freeway, though, but, unlike you OP, I cannot get over my fear of merging. I wish we all had little scooters instead of cars, that way we wouldn't die as easy

Also, public speaking. I have a Speech class in college but I am glad I'm taking it so that I can get over this fear early on in my adult life.

Re: What Frightens You?

A neighbor kid who was off his meds tried to break in my house once. Nothing's as scary to a little kid as two little girls having to brace a door against intruders save perhaps abduction.

Re: What Frightens You?

There was a swarm of bees that made a nest INSIDE my house. BEES. INSIDE. MY HOUSE.

I'm not afraid of most creatures. I will save a spider from getting squished by cupping it in my hands and letting it outside. I have gone out of my way to catch lizards and snakes and such things. Heck I have to work with some scary dogs and cats in my job and I just deal with it if they scratch at me or bite me. But bees. No way.

I tried to lock myself in my room and put a towel under the door so they wouldn't get in, but then I saw them coming out of the electrical sockets. It was like a horror movie.

I left the house and called my parents from the entrance of my neighborhood telling them that I wasn't going home until the bees were gone. I wasn't kidding. I waited till 7:30 to start heading home, long after they had already gotten frustrated with me saying "There is nothing to worry about! They are probably all gone!" They don't understand. I swear I could still hear them buzzing inside the walls while I went to sleep. Nobody else could hear them but me. Terrifying.

Re: What Frightens You?

When I get called up in front of the class to answer questions.
In college, I had a math teacher who liked to do this. Everytime I had to solve a problem on the board, I would freeze up and just sit there. She would have to tell me what to do.
It annoyed me that she kept having me go up there. I guess she thought I would beat my fear. Not even close.

Try having that fear as an adult in college, while presenting something that is 50% of your final grade. x_x I freeze up, and stutter and I don't look ANYONE in the eye, I sweat, turn red, and do pretty much everything stupid BUT pass out XD

I just can't get over it.

Another fear of mine, is fear of rejection. Honestly, I'm lucky to have any sort of boyfriend, lol. I don't like putting my heart on the line anymore. I've been hurt too many times, and I don't think I deserved it.

I also have an unreal fear of the dark. Why the dark? Well, I've watched waaaaay too many horror movies in the past, that dealt with murders in or near the woods. GUESS WHERE I LIVE?! Middle of the f-ing woods... I always worry about a creeper in the woods.

Re: What Frightens You?

Seeing another car who was overtaking someone coming right towards me on my side of the road is probably the scariest real experience I've ever had.

For the scariest thing that never actually happened to me; Silent Hill 2.

And for what I'm afraid of; dying.

Re: What Frightens You?

I have a really big fear of any eye injury or trauma. I can't stand touching my eyeball, which is why I choose to wear glasses and not get contacts.

I'm also afraid of spiders ;_;

Re: What Frightens You?

I have an irrational fear of bees. I'm not allergic and I've only been stung a few times, but I'm still horribly afraid of them. ._.
I also hate using phones. I don't know why, but I'm scared to death of calling people. I really need to get over it. =/

Replace "bees" with "wasps" and I've got the same deal. Bees are bros, they won't bother you unless you've done something to them. Hell, I've had a bee land on my shoulder and ride on it for a bit. He was all, "sup, bro", and I replied, "nothin' much, man", and we went on our separate ways.

Wasps are dicks. They don't give a ♥♥♥♥ what you're doing. They just want to ♥♥♥♥ your ♥♥♥♥ up. So they sting you just to be a dick about it.

Plus, bees can only sting once. Wasps can sting multiple times and do not die after stinging. So one wasp can sting your ass as many times as it can before you kill it.

♥♥♥♥in' dicks.

But I'm sure a lot of guys can relate. Especially when a lot of girls in your high school aren't that known for modesty.

First, I feel guilt. Then I feel pride. Manly pride.

Scariest thing I have ever done was perform in the 8th grade talent show. I wrote a poem, which was kind of suck-tacular. And the performance was even worse. Of course, I was extremely awkward back then, so I thought that I did a fine job...until the creeping realization that my entire class watched me spout some cheesy lines for a few minutes dawned over me.

Not that much for me to feel proud of bro.

EDIT: This was my saddest post ever.
