People are afraid of all kinds of things: spiders, the dark, or being enclosed in small spaces. Tell us about your greatest fear — rational or irrational.
I’m considered a brave/courageous person, which I too agree with unhesitatingly (well one of the few good qualities I possess that is :P) But in reality, just like any other person, I too have some, rather big long term fears. And it can be incorrect to even put it that way technically, to put it bluntly what I fear is dying alone without being loved or remembered (I guess perhaps suicide is not an option for me anytime eh?)
Being in my 20s at the moment I know it’s a bit far-fetched thought, but well I always felt strange about that. To elaborate more on it:
– I fear what if I don’t have the courage to live the life true to myself? What if I don’t find it?
– What if it’s too late to express my feelings?
– What if I’m unable to find happiness?
This kinda points towards depression and loneliness, but in the end these thoughts are usually in the back of my head. Also this article helped me phrase my own, which I resonate with, Nurse reveals the top 5 regrets people make on their deathbed. You can see I mean exactly the same thing, with just the catch being I haven’t even begun living yet!
