My greatest fear

27 Feb

For as long as I can remember, I have had this fear.  This unexplainable, gut-wrenching fear.  Fear that I would be alone.  That no one would love me.  That I would have no one.

Now, I’m a strong person.  I know that I would be fine on my own.  And, I also know that being alone isn’t the worst thing.  There are situations that are far worse.  But, I am such a social person.  I live to talk to people and be around people.  I feed off of other peoples’ energy and I flourish in groups. It’s just how I was designed.

I also have other fears. Clowns, feet, and people who kill other people for fun, to name a few. And then there are the things that I’m not necessarily afraid of, but I actively dislike: spiders, mice, tattoos of faces. But, being alone. I’m horrible at it.

Thankfully, I have a big family. I have several incredible friends. I have an amazing husband and a couple of pretty awesome kids. I don’t have to face being alone very often. I’ve even found that I enjoy it, every once in a while, for short spurts. It gives me the chance to drink a cup of coffee and read a good book.

What is your greatest fear?
