    For me I'm scared of everything going wrong. I like to plan stuff, I feel like I'm always five steps ahead of myself! LOL

    I'm saddened by how people let the world become so dangerous and full of corruption. :C

    Oh and right now I'm scared of my 34 hour bus ride from Florida to Texas. Go Greyhound! Going alone kinda sucks. X_X

    Most sadden by the deaths of my grandparents...they were the world to me...

    I'm not scared of anything really. I learn from my mistakes, and move on. If you let things scare you then you won't ever have the courage to face up to your fears.

    Sorry about the busride though...did that once.....and I say once...

    What makes me sad is the way the world ignores major problems due to laziness, vested interests and greed :(

    What makes me most sad is that I'm not Mark Zuckerburg... under 25 with multi-billions of dollars at his disposal...

    If I had one snake in front of me and a village of zombies behind me, I would choose the zombies.

    I am most saddened by greed and everyone's tendency to fall victim to it to some extent (including my own).

    Spiders scare the hell out of me. I'm arachnophobic. :(

    What saddens me most is that there are SO many ignorant people when it comes to homosexuality. It amazes me how misinformed people are... particularly the religious nuts and politicians. One politician's reason on banning the discussion of homosexuality in schools in Tennessee was because it's a "learned behavior". I also find it equally saddening that people believe that being homosexual is simply a choice... yet not one gay person says it's a choice. Ignorance ignorance ignorance.

    Death scares me...it's the one thing that could really upset me and make me go mad thinking about it. It's a deep rooted "thing" I have had since being very young and it's worse since I have had my kids, and I try not to think about it cos if I do I lie there and get so worked up and it can make me have a panic attack thinking of it.
    I think it's cos no1 can do jackshit about it, its GOING to happen, and its the "forever and ever amen" bit, if I can't sleep it will come to me the idea that THIS, everything I have, my family, my life, one day I'll just not be here, and its not just for a day or week, it's the idea of eternity....
    God it makes me sick thinking of it...

    Thunderstorms scare me. I always think lightning is going to come through my window. And weird things, like losing control of my body and doing something destructive or socially unacceptable.

    I am saddened that we were given this beautiful planet that meets all our needs, and it is slowly dying.

    Right, as if we heterosexuals chose to be the way we are. Nope!

    There was a time when I thought girls were icky. Then they grew breasts, and all of a sudden they jumped all the way to the top of the list... right past legos, BMX bikes, bb guns, all the way to the #1 coolest thing on earth! I had no say in the matter. It wasn't like I looked at a girl and a boy and said, "ok, I'll go with the girl I guess". I was just naturally attracted to them.

    For those who think it's a choice, or who can't empathize with the life of a homosexual because they think it's disgusting and therefore can't understand why they don't just settle down with a member of the opposite sex and live the way nature intended, it's actually a lot easier to understand than you would think. Whenever I come across someone like that, I give them this scenario...

    Say we were born on a planet where homosexuality was the norm, and heterosexuality was the abomination, the target of religious damnation and social disapproval. If we lived on a planet where in nature men were with men and women were with women and I was born the way I am, could I settle down with another man just to escape social ridicule, teasing, hazing, harasement, being disowned by my parents, and having the church tell me that my lifestyle goes against Gods will???

    Nah, I'd have to come out of the closet and let everyone know that as disgusting as everyone thinks it is, I'm attracted to other women. And it's not only that I'm attracted to women, but I'm also thoroughly put off by the thought of having intercourse with another male. So in a world where gay is men loving women and women loving men... I'd have to be gay.

    Because I didn't make this choice to crave women, it's just the way I'm wired. Beat me up, call me names, kick me out of the church... do anything you want to me, it isn't going to convince me to enter into a relationship with a member of my own sex. It might be a hard life for me, but I really wouldn't have any other choice. Because being with another man would be the worse choice of the two paths to take. I don't even know how some gay men get married and have kids with a woman, and then sneak around with men to fullfill their desires. Because under the stated circumstances, I could not get married to another man and sneak around with women to fullfill my desires. I just couldn't be with another man period.

    So to anyone who thinks it's a choice, answer me this... if you were living in a society where heterosexuals like yourself were unnatural, could you 'choose' to be with a member of your own sex just to fit in and not be labeled "GAY"???

    As in you understand the feeling or you think its sad someone thinks like that? Wish I could change it but its a fear Ive had from a very young age. Always wanted to beliwve in afterlifw etc so that the eternity bit doesnt exist. I dont let it affect how I live my life but when I am alone its a thought I try to ignore.

    I am scared of being unhappy.

    I am not scared of death itself, as my life will end (there won't be any (useful) chemical reactions between the molecules that previously formed my brain-cells). So the atoms that formed my body will simply be a part of something else, maybe even another living being such as a bacteria or some kind of mushroom. ;) The thought of losing the people I love is saddening though and so is the thought of their sadness if I were to die.

    Suffering scares me too.

    I'll end this with a bit of optimistic humor. ;)

    :D Yeah. Thing is in the cold light of day, it doesnt really bother me, I can have discussions re death/afterlife blah blah blah....but it's when I am on my own...maybe at night when you can't sleep and everything is quiet...

    I'm afraid.... i'm afraid of not caring. When bad things happen, people die or are suffering, people i am close to, related to. I'm afraid that i just don't/won't care. I really don't how to explain it.

    I'm afraid of emotions and i think that a huge part of my problem. I LOVE my daughter (she's 13)without a shadow of a doubt, apart from that I can't really say. Sometimes i just dont care about anything else and that scares me

    I dont think you are on your own there nightangel. Ive heard people say that unless something directly affects them then they dont really care. I think your peception changes when you have kids anyway and yes the love for your kids TENDS to be the deepest. I think maybe though its a case of not knowing how you will feel until it happens. I dont think you know how you feel about something or how you will react to a situation til it happens. A case of you dont know what you have got til its gone.

    My biggest fear is also my greatest joy. Fire! I love working with fire. I have taken some firefighting courses. I've also taken a pyrotechnics class to learn about making fireworks. I however have the worst fear of someday being burned alive. I mean completely consumed by fire resulting in death. It's weird that when I'm playing with fire the thought never crosses my mind. It's when I'm not that it comes up. I get goosebumps and clam up just thinking about it. Anytime I see someone burning in a movie I have to look away.

    Ironic I know to have such a love and fear of something.

    i am afraid of my wife and daughter getting hurt/killed/anything bad. i would love to put my two year old in a bubble and make sure that nothing bad ever happens to her, but that is unrealistic and stupid. and seeing the news on how women and children are getting kidnapped/ raped/ murdered, its a very scary thought..
