What is your most rational fear?

There are a couple. I have a healthy fear of dying (the unknown). Along with that, I fear ignorance; it can be a dangerous thing!

My fears are generally irrational.

tornadoes, heights

Of losing my temper and saying exactly what I think.

Heights - if I'm climbing up a ladder there is a real risk I will fall off and injure myself. Although
sometimes it is an irrational fear too - I am still scared if I'm stood on a balcony or something, even if I know that really I am in no danger.

That my husband will lose his vision.

Rational? Like mice because they carry disease or dyuing from being hit by a car, or never finding someone to love my whole life through?

Keri-Jade, 23

I prefer not to answer that.

Karen, 24
Ames, IA USA

Never finding a job I actually want and being a stupid admin assistant all my days. Might as well just up and die now if thats how its going to be.

It's fear that I'll make a mistake. It's very rational because I make mistakes all the time.

A living death.

My most rational fear is not being able to have children. Being diagnosed with PCOS I may never have the priviledge of feeling life within me grow. Also being adopted, I may never see
someone else with my geneitc make up, I will never be really related to anyone. I fear being childless.

Disease - ill health.

my most rational fear is my parents being totally run over by my family. i stay home because of that as a protector. i am the only one who cares. my parents are so nice and giving and they get taken advantage of by everyone. its like they know but they dont say no when they need to. so i get involved and cut off most of the crap. people in my family dont like me but i dont care. i love my parents and they are getting old. they shouldnt have to worry about taking care of and paying for grown people.

i dont let my parents pay for almost anything for me. i dont pay rent but i pay for everything else i need and i make sure i keep an eye out for everyone else. its like i am a manager for them.
now its all falling apart. i have put so much of my life on hold for them but its not showing any worth. i dont know if i can keep it up but i am scared that if i back off the wolves will attack.

but then again my parents are grown. they know right from wrong and if they choose to let people walk over them then why should i keep breaking my back over it? i cant find a reason anymore.
