Just Curious...What are You Most Afraid Of?

Good morning! As this month is Halloween and typically filled with spooky ghosts, witches, and other assorted scary things it got me thinking what are you/I afraid of. It could be anything like scary creatures but it may also be that you are afraid of aging, or trying something new and failing or perhaps it is the dark or spiders, mice or thunder. 

I am afraid of scary movies, books and photos and if I see them it is like they are imprinted on my brain for a long long time. 

I am not afraid of aging but I am afraid of getting Alzheimer's and every time I cannot remember a word or a person or where something is I am convinced that I have early onset. 

I'm afraid that if something happens to me no one will care for my two dogs. 

I do not have children and sometimes I am afraid that if something happens to my husband I will have no one to care for me when I am old. 

I am afraid of my parents passing away. Obviously I know it is the cycle of life but I hate even to ponder it. 

I am afraid of doing inversions like handstand at yoga because I think I might break my neck.

I am afraid of big dogs especially pit bulls. 

What about you? Is there something that you are afraid of? If so please share and I would love to know that I am not alone with my fears. 

Have a wonderful day!



  1. I am afraid of heights and steep down escalators. I'm even getting a rapid heartbeat from typing it. Have a great week.

  2. I fear the idea of ever going back to the lowest point in my life.

  3. Heights, Clowns, Getting lost while driving by myself not be able to find my way. Losing my husband and what would happen when I get old, would my children take care of me.
    Wishing you a good week and I love you blog!

  4. In my younger years, I was afraid of failure. I still am to some extent, but as an artistic person, I have to say that I am afraid of being ordinary!

  5. What a great and thought provoking posts. I once was a real scaredy cat... I was the one who would jump from my own shadow. I feel like I have had to confront most of my worst fears. Now my fears are emotional, though I am unreasonably afraid of anyone wearing a mask.... I would never ever go into a "haunted house". I am afraid of my husband/daughter/grandchildren being hurt. I am afraid of letting people down.... disappointing them...not doing enough. I am afraid if I continue to think about this I will discover I am still afraid of my shadow. Ha! Ha! Hugs! I hope you week is going well.

  6. thanks for your vulnerability. it's so beautiful here. i am not halloweeny whatsoever and never enjoyed it. i am doing really well in the fear department, and aging seems to be a big help with that. i cannot watch horror or violence as i am way too sensitive and easily overstimulated. i fear mice and cry like a baby if i encounter one. i feel fearful about coping when my mom dies, and that is simply a testament to how close we are...just goes with the territory. thanks for reminding me how far i have come in the fear department! there was a period of time i was paralyzed by it! xox

  7. Such great reminders for us all! Happy Thursday, Elizabeth!

  8. Such an interesting post! I am afraid of heights - I cried when on my first trip to Paris someone forced me to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower. And, I am now afraid of falling down...and of anything bad happening to my loved ones. I love these "Just Curious" posts - keep them up! xoxo
