Things that I would label as a fear would probably be re-labeled by a mental health professional as something else. Anxiety. Insecurity. Abnormal.
I say, if something gives you that feeling, and you know what I mean, it's a fear.
Here are mine:
- Ironically, success. (more on this later)
- Things I can't see. For example, the ocean. I will get in until I can't see the bottom anymore, then I back up. You won't see me in a lake, either. Nor will I stick my hand into a box.
- Electricity. But not to where I'm not able to plug in things, but not to be able to do any repairs or additions in the house. Exposed wire? YIKES!
Don't judge, O.K?
