Fears you aren't willing to face


Have any fears that you aren't willing to face?

Have thought about how there are some fears that I have no intention of ever facing. Came up again today because I was thinking of creating a 3 month routine to make myself a stronger person. It was going to include working on a different fear each month, but I realized I'm limited on fears I'm willing to work on.

Fears I'm not willing to face

1.Sitting on a public toilet seat(even if it appears clean) without epic amounts of disinfecting
2. Heights - At least not sky diving, roller coasters, etc

Fears I would be willing to work some on

1.Social situations. Not including things like giving speeches
2.Spiders
3.The dark. Used to be able to do things like go night walking alone, but I've grown too nervous over the years. Some is for legitimate safety reasons, but a lot was caused by too many horror movies, books, etc.

Just social situations it seems, especially asking people questions

Singing dancing, public speaking. Literally rather plant a bullet in my brain than do any of that again.

Fears I won't face:

Being put in a coffin and filled with tarantulas and poisonous snakes.

Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.

My feelings around people. Working around people. Other fears I have I've faced but that one, for some reason even when I make myself be around people I can't face the feelings and face people seeing how I feel.

When it comes to things I'm not willing to do, it tends to be things I am firm about. For better or worse, I'm pretty much an all or nothing type of person.

Dogs, heights, social situations/ trying to get a social life, analyzing /thinking through marriage proposals .. I just refuse without meeting/getting to know the guy. Too scary for me.

I prefer the harsh , cold truth over a beautiful lie anyday.

My claustrophobia will never allow me to go spelunking, or spend any amount of time on a submarine. I think I can live without those things.

I'm not ready to face job interviews or getting/trying to keep a job right now, but hopefully this isn't a "never" situation... although it is terrifying. I'm also terrified of asking people questions or trying to start or keep up a conversation with someone I don't know very well, it's so hard. I need to work on that though.

I refuse to have a public wedding (if I ever get married). I refuse to do any public speaking, like at meetings or for school. I will not ride roller coasters.

FYI: My avatar is not a picture of me, it is a picture of Amy Lee from the band Evanescence. She's gorgeous, no?
