There are dozens of types of FEAR we humans can experience at any time.
The acronym of FEAR is False Evidence Appears Real.
FEAR is defined by the American Medical Dictionary as a feeling of agitation and dread by the presence of imminence of danger.
Three of them plague my life.
1. Since I live in Florida, I have a FEAR of roaches. I know they are small and scurry from area to another. I’m scared to death of them. Of course, there are the Palmetto bugs. They are Texas size roaches, Big and Ugly. Maybe this is it. Orginally in the north west, I believe roaches are dirty.
Whatever size they are, I jump scream for my knight in shining armor to come and smash the breathe out of them. Don’t pick them up and take them outside while they run down your arm before you open the outside door. Kill the suckers and send them to roach heaven.
2. Another FEAR is non acceptance of my peers and judgment by them. Now this can get in the way of living. One thing about getting older is one grows a thick skin.
3. The third FEAR is a fear of failure and new things. I remember as a student nurse, my first injection I gave I needed to explain the whole procedure to him. Well at least this was for me, so I looked like I knew what I was doing.
The needle appeared to have a mind of its own and moved back and forth like the pendulum on a clock. My legs felt like cooked noodles. I performed the injection- the patient didn’t die. I walked out on wobbly legs, with a happy smile.
This is what I compare my first blog to. I’m shaking on the inside. Yet, here I am. I’m going to push through all this. My new blog concerns the various issues we women face in life from young girls to older women and the world we live in.
What are you afraid of? What are your fears? Have they changed since you were a young girl? Have you managed to not let them hinder you in your daily life?
Leave me a comment. I loved to read it.
