The sea and things that lurk within.

frogs, ghosts, losing my loved ones.

My current fear during this time is not a very practical one per se, It is the fear of potentially losing (literally or otherwise) two people I call friends from the United States due to the pandemic.

The first lives in Phoenix, AZ and works in behavioral health. He personifies resilience, being a kind and gentle individual despite the hardships he has experienced in life.

The second is a New Yorker, and a graduating(ed) medical student studying in Boston, MA. She is the warmest and most curious individual that I have ever met.

When all the bad news came around, it was difficult emotionally. To know that they are at risk, and at a higher risk, due to what they believe in. A myriad of emotions - a sense of loss, grief, and helplessness also came when I thought, and think of them.

Many things, really.
I'm afraid of heights, of automatic doors, of being left behing or
alone. I'm afraid of running out of the things I like, failure and
not living up to expectations.

I fear if I die before my children;
I fear if my father who has dementia forgets me soon..

being left alone and losing my loved ones
not achieving my dreams and goals

Losing love ones
Texture: nil
Colour: black

I am afraid of not being in the moment, worrying about the future, but then that would be missing the moments we are living in. Irony.

I am afraid of clowns because of the layer of masks and make up. But then people do have those hidden layers too. So I can’t decide if I’m afraid of people or fiction / non-fiction.

Seperation

Fear of weight gain
Not being good enough

I am worried about people not loving or caring for me such as them leaving me out of activities and not asking me if I want to join them. I always have the sense of abandonment, feeling unwanted and left out. there is also this sense of emptiness inside me, always searching for something which I don't know what it is.

My lousy drawing

1.Failure
2.NOt able to cope with caregiving

I am afraid that things will change and not be as good as it was, people will change and feelings will change. I am afraid that eventually I have nothing to grow or improve in, and I am just stuck in here without anything to look forward to. I am afraid the future is bleak.

Relapse

Noises in the dark
Drowning
Not being able to provide myself
Spiders

having my heart broken,
people being better than me, not being the
top, caring too much,
my parents

I am afraid of how people see me, the dark, being bullied, fearing that I am not good enough, that I am a disappointment to people, that I am not what I appear to be and that I am deceiving others. That I will do the wrong thing, making the wrong choices and end up failing in life.

Shades of darkness
Blood flowing from body
Explosion in the dark
Shifting shapes in dreams

I guess it takes up all your energy because you keep thinking about it. And every time you think about it, or the possibility of it, you get chills, and you feel like crying from (stress???) I don't know but it's just this scary feeling and it eats you up.

I'm afraid of death. I don't know what it's like to not exist.
I'm afraid it won't be like anything. I'm afraid nothing like
spirits exist, and everything is just forgotten by everyone
after death. I'm even more terrified of imagining time
going one without "me". Millions and millions of years. The
universe may collapse and restart again and I will never
know any of it. It's the same as a blink to me.

Being useless

When things don't go as planned.
Big health problems

death and leaving things without preparation and goodbyes. then again, even with goodbyes i am still afraid. i fear disappointment and i fear hope. i fear letting people down and giving them false happiness. i fear leaving people out unintentionally. i fear thinking about bad rude evil sad redundant generally just bad thoughts... i fear being someone i am not but i am unsure of who i really am.

Unfairness
Suffering

- Being in a large group of people
- Being asked to talk to a large group of people
- Being asked to impress the large group of people
- Bugs – anything that flies or is bigger than the standard house ant creeps me out
- Low temperatures – not being able to maintain a comfortable body temperature even after wearing layers or clothes
- Losing someone important forever, more drifting apart than death because everybody dies
- Unfamiliarity
- Racism – being pre-judged and misunderstood

I am afraid of deadlines and small things that don't seem to matter in the long run (yet make me feel very scared nonetheless). I am afraid of my own lack of emotional availability to my friends haha. I am generally just scared of making a fool of myself to others and not being there for them I guess!

I am the most afraid of people who take advantage of others for their own good. I think people like Donald Trump are scary. I hope I don't get in trouble for saying that. I don't know what else to write. These people are scary to me.
