What Are You Most Afraid Of And Why? (Blogging Challenge)

Good morning everyone,

Welcome to the 3rd day of the 15 Day Blogging Challenge! As you may know, I have set out 15 topics across 15 days for us to blog about. If you would like to join in, please read more here.

What Are You Most Afraid Of And Why?

I am most afraid of my husband being in a car accident or passing away by any means. It is a true phobia, every time my husband is in the car I am absolutely petrified that something will happen to him.

He is the safest driver, but that doesn’t count for much when the whole world is always on their phones behind the wheel distracted. You could be doing everything right, and yet someone else could be an absolute idiot and put others lives at risk when they are behind the wheel.

Even if he gets a cold/flu, I worry and watch him like a hawk. I just want him to be happy, healthy and safe at all times. I love him far too much, and I just want to make sure he lives the longest and healthiest life as much as I am able to help provide for him. I am terrified of anything ever happening to him.

This has always been my way, though. When I was younger, I used to get off the school bus and have to cross a bridge over the highway on my walk home. If I didn’t cross the bridge quick enough, something would happen to my family. That’s what my anxiety used to tell me to make me cross the bridge quick enough! I used to have a huge fear of heights, and I still do. At least it let me cross the bridge sooner enough so that the fear was over.

My anxiety isn’t as terrible anymore, I have learned to manage it well enough however I still have those creeping up thoughts in the back of my head but I just have learned to shut them out. That’s what being an adult is useful for, you can have selective thoughts and memories! (And hearing, if someone is talking to you and you want to pretend you can’t hear them!)

There are the stereotypical fears as well like spiders and all of those scary things, of course. I can’t stand spiders, especially because I live in Australia the ones we get here are huge and can actually kill you if you get bitten by the wrong one. Imagine what gardening is like here for us Australians! My husband is from England and said the spiders there are all small and harmless, that must be so nice. I can’t even imagine that!

  1. I am so happy to read this because it seems that you truly worry for your husband… And I know that even a thought of something happening to people close to me…it is a terror.
    However, in couple of hours my day 3 is coming.

    1. Yeah the thought of what happens after it just breaks my brain! I don’t like the idea of leaving anyone behind. It’s just scary 😔 I feel like the thought of getting a lot older is also pretty daunting, like living in a nursing home and potentially being alone. It’s just… Weird to think about!

  2. Great post and a great challenge to make you think…To answer that question/challenge, I would say that I used to worry, like you stated, of harm to my family or of accidents but I’ve learned to do away with some things in my life and one of them was anxiety and stress. I realised that if I did not use those words to describe things or events or whatever is happening that I did not suffer their ill and devastating effects. Things are what they are, whether we are being born or dying, the world is indifferent…in any event I love your blog and the challenges. All the best to you and my greetings from Spain,
    FBC

    1. That’s beautiful. I admire that you have learned to control your anxiety and stress, it’s absolutely a large learning curve and it is a bit hurtle that you need to learn to jump in life. Well done!!

    2. That sounds all well and good on paper,Francisco,until stress and real life decides to pay you a visit. Once it does and it brings an life altering event along for the ride,I believe you’ll see things in a much different perspective.
