    I personally am scared of being in the center of attention, especially if I have to give a speech. I have social anxiety and don't like socializing with other people I don't really know. I just want to be in my corner alone and not be noticed. What is something you're scared of?

    Yeah the drowning simulator is intense if you haven't tried it yet I would hate to be stranded out in the ocean.

    i have severe anxiety so this is a pretty big question, but:

    • i'm deathly afraid of spiders anything similar to spiders (centipedes, large ants, daddy longlegs, etc).

    • i'm scared of looking stupid (social anxiety basically, i hate being in the public eye or in places where my input is needed. i hate group calls or group chats, meetings, giving advice to someone even).

    • i have the best mixture of claustrophobia and agoraphobia. i'm scared of being in large spaces, but i will immediately hyperventilate if i'm in a tiny, enclosed area like an elevator. being stuck in traffic is hard for me, too.

    • i'm scared of being lost or stranded. my brother used apple maps on his phone one time for a trip and it sent us 30 minutes off course and we had no idea where we were. that wasn't a good day. :p


    • i also have a fear of going blind. that's mainly because i'm already half deaf. :p

    the list is huge, but those are a few of my worst fears.

    Yeah I'm basically the same when it comes to social anxiety. I also don't like being lost but thankfully Google maps does a great job in keeping me from getting lost mostly lol. I also don't like being around birds. They're fine at a distance, but up close I freak out. Going blind or deaf would also suck. I don't like being in tight areas while driving, otherwise I'm fine.

    Yeah my mom owned cockateels and parrots. They're fine in cages, but I'm not a fan of reaching in there for food and water bowls. I also don't like them being out of their cages and flying around the room.

    on the contrary, I'm the one who craves the spotlight. Performer and dancer kinda guy IRL. There's no such thing as stage fright for me.

    As for what I'm afraid of? Well not living a meaningful life, or what I do is just leaving behind waste. I want to impact others in a good way :eek:

    i am scared of..
    • cockroaches, spiders, centipedes, moths, beetles (bugs, arachnids, etc.)
    • absolute darkness
    • great heights
    • doing or being forced to do things i'm not comfortable doing
    • doing or being forced to do things i'm not comfortable doing in front of other people (on some occasions, i would get so nervous that i'd kinda tear up up to the point where i start crying </3)
    • losing someone who is absolutely important to me in any way, shape or form (losing a friendship with them, death, replacement etc.)
    :oops:

    Being alone in the woods at night. Used to have to walk a trail like that when I was younger, to get back home from a friend's house.
