a feeling of anxiety concerning the outcome of something or the safety and well-being of someone.
the likelihood of something unwelcome happening.
I fear anxiety itself. I dread moments when I feel anxious, empty, or lonely.
I fear the future. I fear not knowing if and when we will return "home" wherever that may be.
I fear having children. I fear that I am responsible for a small person's life, faith and well being.
I fear not having children. One of my worst fears is that my dad may not meet his grand babies, or watch them grow up if we wait around to have kids.
I fear leaving New York and the relationship we have developed here with each other.
I fear having to leave our church family here.
I fear the idea of having to live here forever (fickle I know).
I fear the world we live in. The people, the violence and the self entitlement.
I fear that bringing a child into this world could be a disaster.
I fear being alone. What if God one day took Joe away from me. I would be so, so lost.
I fear looking weak in front of my peers.
I fear the death of others, but not of my own. It's selfish really. I fear the sadness it would bring.
I fear that there are dark times and worse moments in my future.
I fear all things out of my control.
Fear is the burden we carry on our shoulders daily. It is fear that forms the wrinkles around our tired eyes; and fear is what ages us. Fear is stressed without spelling desserts backwards.
What is fear for you?
Does it motivate you? Does it encourage you?
Fear is something I take to my creator. When I cannot handle it anymore, I leave it with someone who can. My fear evaporates as I am still instead of worrying.
Won't you sit still today?
