I am afraid of losing myself in the chaos of this world. I am afraid of losing the vision that I can make a difference one day. I’d like to take one step at a time but reach my destination.
I am scared of wasting this precious life and not being able to recognize the purpose of my existence as a human (like why I was created a ‘human’ – to serve a greater purpose? what purpose?). Sometimes, I think I can try hypnotherapy but I rather keep it as my last resort and wander in search of my purpose at the moment. After all, I should give myself a chance first.
I am afraid of the ‘insecurity of future’. I have everything today and I might have nothing tomorrow. I have my loved ones today and they might not be with me the next day and I wouldn’t even be able to say Good-bye. I know how you all would be like ‘live in the moment’ but I can’t help thinking about tomorrow.
I am afraid of ‘Age’ but not ‘Death’. Probably, the cycle of life. For instance, when I see and touch my mum’s hands, I notice the wrinkles and rough texture of the skin of her hands, a result of years of hard work. I see the ‘old-age’ approaching. My mother is a woman who is sixteen at heart but watching her grow old sends shivers down my spine (Just to clear it, I am not afraid of aging myself).
I am afraid of not being able to fulfill my parents expectations. My parents have always given me the freedom to follow my dreams and do what I believe is right unlike the majority of Eastern parents. I can’t be who I am today without their support. Hence, one of my biggest fear is if I’d fail them one day. Worse off, what if I fail myself?
I am scared of the ocean — even more after the airplanes disappearing. I have read that around 70% of the ocean remains undiscovered, I can only imagine the miracles of this mysterious Nature underwater.
I am scared of animals. I really want to over-come this fear as it was developed because of a tragedy in my childhood. I was around 3 and these kittens were playing with me when I was walking to my aunt’s place which was a block away. Suddenly, I lost my balance when I tried to not step on the kitten and tripped over and fell in the drain. It became quite serious and since then I can’t get over this animal-fear. Also, when I was a kid, I used to dream snakes a lot. It’s just a few years ago when it stopped so I got quite paranoid with the crawling and wriggling creatures. Even the thought of snakes make my body tense.
I think that’s it for this post. I am sure there might be bulks more but I won’t bother stressing after such a long flight!
Until next time, Live, Love, Inspire & (don’t forget to) Smile. Believe in yourself and you can conquer all your fears.

I’m afraid of dying and living my handsome son in this world without protection.
I know the feeling, God bless you and your son! ❤
Reading about these fears, reminds me of ‘The Alchemist’ (a great book by Paulo Coehlo).
Every one with such fears should atleast for once read that book.
That’s my favorite book! I love everything written by Paulo Coelho. Thank you for dropping by and sparing the time to read and comment.
Thats really great to know. Even I have always enjoyed reading Paulo Coelho.
Naima, trust in God, and know you are a wonderful addition to the world, let go of your fears and live life. We share two bodies in life, the one of flesh and the spiritual one. The flesh will fade one day, but what is alive inside, your spirit, will last forever! You said your mother is changing outside but she is still sixteen at heart, that is the beauty of life, though we change outwardly daily, inwardly we blossom always…our spirit came from Gods spirit and will return to his presence , he is love, and so that love will last forever. I have always loved your mind, and your selfless heart…you are amazing, and you have no need to worry, just live, share, love and be kind to all and you will overcome all things. Love, hugs and blessings my dear sister!
I can relate to paragraph 3 because of our daughter’s health and paragraph 4 because I’m getting older. 🙂 Older not old, though. Heehee! I have always had a fear of spiders but that has mellowed over the years and I save them now if I can. Ironically, saving them comes from my daughter. 🙂 I hope you learn to conquer your fears as time passes, too…hugs and blessings!
My prayers and well-wishes are with your daughter and family. It’s always so good to hear from you. Thank you for your wonderful comments.
By the way, I love clouds! They are beautiful! 🙂 ♥
Thank you Lauren ❤
