My fear is that I will always be this way and never get to see the me I have always imagined being!

I am afraid of dying and not existing anymore in any way, shape or form. I am also afraid of being like my mother and losing the respect and love of my children.

That I will not loose the pouch on my lower belly.

Me too ! The wait is killing!

I wish I had a better answer but it basically boils down to the fact that we always expect the worse .... and most of the time, it isn't worse the anxiety!


If I don't know to swim,I'll drown in deep water.
Since I don't swim well I'll tread water until one day I l be able to do a few strokes and from then on, I'll progress.

See! Look at all of us ! we are all afraid of something..

Sometimes it is justified, sometimes it is just mundane , sometimes we are chasing after our own tail, and most of the time, we are just looking for a friend, who is going to share our anxieties and ease them by simple understanding.!

To all of you , who have answered this thread, I have a suggestion: Find your "kindred spirit", from all the former answers, bare your soul as to why you are afraid of that particular fear and solve it together.
What is that english saying: "A friend in need, is a friend indeed ( or is it a friend In deed)?
There are no fears, which cannot be blown to naught !


One more of my own: I am dead scared of...... obscurity...and I know why/!

I fear quitting on myself and not going the distance, regaining what I have lost, and dying too soon.

Your goal is not to see how strong your will is, or how much you can persevere. Your goal is to figure out how to make it as easy on yourself as possible, to set up your environment so it pushes you towards success, to stack the deck in your favor.

Pretty much nothing. I've survived an aneurysm and three brain surgeries--it's hard to really be afraid of anything after that.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, cumba Mexicana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, danzón, Cuban rumba, ballroom rumba

I don't know if I would call it fear, but more dread. I dread what I know lies ahead with my hubby in his fight against cancer especially since his options of treatment are becoming less in number all the time.

Not being able to zip line with my mom because I'm over the weight limit.

Be stronger than your strongest excuse.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.ďż˝
