10 Day Challenge - Eight Fears


Eight Fears

one.
balloons
yes I know it's completely irrational.
but there are a lot of people who are scared of balloons.
Roy, from The IT Crowd explains it best.
"Balloons explode, Jen. They explode suddenly, and unexpectedly. They are filled with the capacity to give me a little fright, and I find that unbearable."

two.
big waves and stormy oceans.
I have nightmares!

three.
not being good enough.
this is a main symptom of my anxiety.
it leads to perfectionism and worse...
procrastination!

four.
running out of time to have children.
I'm 27 this year and never been in a serious relationship.
I have come to terms with the fact that I may never find "THE ONE"
but I want children!
But, you need a man to have children.
Unless I just buy some sperm.
That could work :)

five.
poisonous snakes.
I'm not afraid of snakes that aren't poisonous.
and being from Australia, I know that snakes are more
afraid of me than I am of it.
I know where they're most likely to be found
and avoid it.

six.
white tailed spiders & red back spiders
& other poisonous spiders.
If there's a white tailed spider inside I kill it.
if there is a red back spider outside away from the house
I leave it.
if there is a non-poisonoous spider in my room
I catch it and put it outside.

seven.
low heights.
for example, climbing ladders, or standing on chairs to get things
I'm fine with high heights.
I guess my reasoning is...
if I fall from low heights I'll hurt myself and be in pain
if I fall from high heights I'll die and then theres no pain.
yeah I know I'm weird.

eight.
Dinosaurs.
yeah.... hahaha just kidding!
