I’m playing along with the “30 things my kids should know about me” challenge and wanted to share with you my latest scrapbook layout. So here are 3 of my fears and how they came about…
1. Heights – I don’t know where this fear came from. Maybe it’s because my Mother has always been afraid of heights. But for as long as I can remember my heart beats faster when I’m up high, or near the edge. Which just makes me afraid when I see my children near the edge. I’m always scared someone will fall.
2. Being underground – as a teenager we went on a jeep driven tour through a cave. As we got farther into the earth I became more and more panicked. The thought of the weight of the earth being above me just scared me to death. I could all to easily imagine the sensation of being crushed. Ever since, I have been afraid of caves, and being underneath things…even a bed. Sends me into a panic.
3. Being Abandoned – I think this stems from a life-long struggle with self esteem. I am always worried that people will leave me. As I’ve grown older and come to trust the love in my relationships this fear has morphed into a fear of losing those I love. Strange isn’t it? For someone that is energized through alone time to fear being alone most of all.
