Day 2: Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and describe how they became fears.
Fear 1: I have a fear of disappointing people I care about.
I know, I know. I should be all "why should I care what they think?" But, no matter how much I want to be like that, I'm not that person. I do care what people think. I care if they approve. And, I care if they're proud of me. I will admit I am my worst critic, but I also seriously care about what other people think of me as well. I know not everyone will agree with all of my choices, but I seriously try to make them proud of me in the end regardless of if they approved of my initial decision or not.
Fear 2: I have a serious fear of clowns.
HATE. CANNOT STAND. REGARDLESS OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES. I realize that at 21 years old I should probably be over this fear. But, I'm not. And, I'm okay with it. I've never been to the circus. I have no desire to go to the circus. I didn't ever like the Ronald McDonald man that used to sit outside our McDonald's. There were clowns that used to come to the Southern Christmas Show. I made sure to walk very fast and not make eye contact with them. I don't know where this came from. For as long as I can remember I haven't liked them. I think they're creepy. Those painted on smiles are not smiles. I don't like the fact that they try to act like they're the best thing I'm gonna do all day. False.
Fear 3: I have a fear of public restrooms.
I have no idea where this came from either. I just don't use them. I never went in high school because if you go in there you'd come out smelling like smoke. And, although I knew my parents would believe me if they asked why I smelled like that, I just hated the smell altogether. I chose suite style living in college, because that was the style with the least people sharing one bathroom. If I had been an RA on a hall-style dorm, I probably would have had multiple anxiety attacks. I don't know if it's a germs thing as much as an awkward thing. I've just never been comfortable being in the bathroom at the same time as another person. I'm real weird. I know it. No need to dwell on the subject.
So there you have my three fears.
