People Share Their Biggest Fear

There is nothing to fear except fear.... yeah right. Not True! Fear is real. Fear is a thing that is disturbing and scary and it's totally fine to have it. You don't need a big 'Braveheart' like speech to avoid it. Because you can't avoid it. In fact, we must embrace it. We all have the things that strike our cores the most. So let's chat about it.

Redditor u/BoobySponges wanted everyone to own up and discuss all the things they want to hide from by asking..... What's your worst fear?


For reals.....

Giphy

Losing grip with reality. Racing_in_the_street

For reals. The idea of onset schizophrenia or dementia is absolutely terrifying. I have nightmares about this. OiTheCats

Worth It....

i think for most of my life it's been that i won't end up doing anything that i think is really worthwhile. not necessarily leading a bad life, but sort of a meh life. that's a really sad thought to me. Reddit

Me too, me too.....

Being alone. depthstrider117

It's already killing me, TBH. And the fact that the more you're alone makes you more alone is something I just can't get my head around. TheHater4936

Me too, me too. BoobySponges

From Within..... 

Getting eaten alive from the inside out by wasps. inomenat

There is this moment in the Witcher game where you are talking with a ghost woman who paralyzed by a potion and then was eaten alive by rats while she could feel everything but couldn't move or scream or anything. That certainly is up there on the list of bad ways to go. fail-mail-ninja

Watered....

Drowning in a trapped space. smogdoggie

The Cycle....

That my son will grow up to be like his abusive father, despite how much I try to teach him differently. I worry it won't be enough. claricia

Man, breaking those family MOs are tough...even more so to identify and figure out how to get out of it without going crazy. Its great to hear others that have made it though man, congrats, truly, I know how difficult it can be. jhans22

Losing It....

The thing that scares me most is losing my mind. I see dementia in everyday life more and more and it terrifies me. It could happen to any of us and indeed probably will happen to many of us. The downside of longer life spans is our bodies will become less able and the part that I fear more than any is to lose my brain, who I am and all the memories from my life. If I think about going deaf, becoming unable to walk or even losing my sight, I could imagine dealing with it. But to lose who I am, nah, that's truly, truly terrifying. TannedCroissant

I imagine if I was insane.....

Being locked in a mental hospital while sane.

Several jobs I've had involved being in and around these units. I've had interactions with the patients that left me scared of being in there for good.

I imagine if I was insane I wouldn't care as much. Wowiejr

After Me.... 

My biggest fear is that my wife will be depressed when I am gone. She is 6 years younger. Im caucasian and she is asian. I also used to smoke and drink a ton. Many factors suggest she will live much longer. I have made sure that financially she will have a better than average situation but she has always said that when I die she wants to die.

I am hoping that we can start a family before we are too old so she will have a reason to live and be happy when she is old. blazingeye

The Future.

Turning into one of my clients. I'm a hospice aide. I know exactly what its like to die slowly from a horrible disease. I'm in the process of changing careers, I think I've had enough. Huxeley

Comedy is in a very tricky place right now.

There is so much to NOT laugh about in this world.

So what do we do?

We tell inappropriate jokes apparently.

Let's hear some...

Life can change in an instant.

It can always change for the better.

Just ask any lottery winner.

Sadly, life can also take a turn for the worst and leave people shattered beyond repair.

Watching someone's life fall apart in a short amount of time is difficult.

You have to wonder if there really is such a thing as karma, bad luck, or Voodoo.

Redditor OkImagination5852 wanted to hear about the times we've been witness to personal disaster. They asked:

"People who witness a person's life crumble in a single day, what happened?"
