What are you scared of?

DragonMasterDarrenDragonMasterDarren Member Posts: 636

Me personally, I'm scared of the ocean, not because I'm scared of water but because we don't know what lives in the ocean depths, not only that but just try and picture yourself under the ocean, you're in a personal sub or heavy diving suit, it's dark, you have no way of getting back up, you're running out of air, and slowly being crushed to death as you begin to feel the immense pressure of hundreds of thousands of gallons of water, you twist your head and hear a loud, feral roar, it doesn't sound like anything you've ever seen before, you realise it's the end of you, and you pray to whatever god you pray too that you die from suffocation before you become whatever made that roar's next meal



scary [BAD WORD] man

    I fear jewellery, in particular the feel of it. It feels like an electric shock whenever I touch it and it's the thin chains.. I just don't like them at all!

    Caves. Kinda similar to your reason tbh, mostly because you don’t know what’s in there. Plus the thought of getting lost and even stuck in an area makes me feel uncomfortable. Like imagine you go down further in a cave and somehow you get lost and don’t know how to get back up. It’s dark, you’re in a closed spot, bugs and bats, it could flood and a lot of other things.

    I just don’t like caves from all the stories and me getting semi lost in one when I was younger. 😅

    Pies with cooked fruits😒.

  • LowkeysaurusLowkeysaurus Member Posts: 50

    Huh, y'alls are really interesting fears because I'm less afraid of them and more so interested by them. Caves? I'd absolutely love to explore a cave. The ocean? I love swimming, it's relaxing, although I admit I stand at ankle-depth and am immediately terrified of potential jellyfish.


    Cooked fruit in pies... Ah, I can get behind that one. Fruit in general in any food that is supposed to be sweet. Like raisins in chocolate. Not a good look, yeah?


    But no, my fear is actually the dark. My mom and step-dad watched either Darkness Falls or The Tooth Fairy when I was a child (whichever one it is that she can't go into the light) and I happened to come in at a particularly scary part where it was revealed that if you stayed in the light you couldn't be hurt, and ever since I've been petrified of the dark.

    Walking across bridges. Being underneath one is fine but if I'm walking across, I have to stay in the middle and away from the edges. My twin brother likes to jokingly push me towards the edge or if it's a wooden suspension bridge, he'll shake the ropes just to freak me out. I'm not sure what it is about bridges specifically because usually I'm okay with heights, lol

    two main fears that i'd genuinely classify as phobias of mine

    the fear of being forgotten. this is one thats haunted me for years, and still does at times. used to be way worse at dealing with it though. i used to text my friends or partner every ten minutes to make sure they didn't forget about me. i know, i was probably very very annoying. i got better with it though. i got myself to wait between texts more. an hour, a couple hours, ect ect. now basically as long as i hear from them that day, or they've told me why i wont be hearing from them, i'm fine. it still gets to me sometimes though.

    and second is the fear of ghosts. now, im the kind of person who believes that anything could be possible, but without significant evidence then i dont have any reason to believe its real. and this goes the same for ghosts, spirits, poltergeists, yadda yadda yadda. i believe its possible they exist, but i dont believe that they do at the moment.... but watching videos of supposed ghost activities scare the absolute crap out of me. i don't know why they get to me so bad. sometimes i cant sleep for a day or two after watching one. and yet i still sometimes watch one out of curiosity.

    Death. Thanatophobia fits well here, I'd say ;)

  • DragonMasterDarrenDragonMasterDarren Member Posts: 636

    i also like swimming, but I wouldn't put on a diving suit and go deep underwater

  • LowkeysaurusLowkeysaurus Member Posts: 50

    I suppose that's where we're different. I'm pretty fond of the ocean and the creatures in it, and if I could I'd probably own an underwater house or stay in an underwater hotel or something.

    Being Betrayed


    I even keep my own Family at a distance sometimes. I'd hate to grow close to someone only for them to turn there backs on me at the worst moment. Ik it's a [BAD WORD] thing to do with your own Family, but recently I've been opening up abit more and learning to trust them more.

    Lots of different things. I'd say we all have many little fears but some have more major fears. Spiders and needles are some small ones. I hate anything to do with veins. I can watch any horror movie, with any gore in it. But if someone cuts their wrists or throat my arms pull tight into my body. It's like I'm trying to protect them lol

    Major fear is upsetting someone/disappointing them. I value my friends/family very highly and if I think I've really annoyed any of them it eats away at me. It may be something little but it really really bothers me. I genuinely can't sleep at night sometimes, worrying if I upset someone biased off something they said or the lack of saying something.

    I fear the united states of america and it's people. They [BAD WORD] scare me to death sometimes. Who thought it was a good idea to elect trump? The police are so 50/50, going to live in my attic in a few decades.

  • Pet_The_LizardsPet_The_Lizards Member Posts: 501

    Ugh... This made me think about the Neil Moss and John Jones stories... VERY sad incidents.

  • MerGirl2003MerGirl2003 Member Posts: 110

    I have pretty severe Arachnophobia, weirdly it seems to fluctuate in severity now and then. One day I can be in the same room as one as long as it keeps it's distance from me and another day all it takes is for me to see one on the outside of my bedroom window for me to almost have a panic attack. I played the Resident Evil remake for the first time recently not knowing there were spiders in it and almost started crying when I encountered the giant spider boss.

  • USELESSUSELESS Member Posts: 1,151

    I fear height, blood and future dbd updates. Also I used to fear spiders, but now I am less horrofield with then, but still scary

  • DragonMasterDarrenDragonMasterDarren Member Posts: 636

    if I so much as see a picture of a tarantula, I get chills

  • CheersCheers Member Posts: 3,426

    I've always had a fear of mushrooms...not exactly sure why.


    Additionally, since late Febuary / Early March I've feared death for...reasons.

  • GrootDudeGrootDude Member Posts: 14,127

    I have a lot of fears so I’ll just list some, I fear dogs that I’m not used to, I fear snakes, I have trypophobia (a fear of holes, primarily in clusters) and I fear going into water excluding pools and (obviously) shower or bath water.

  • Karl_ChildersKarl_Childers Member Posts: 669

    Centipedes. Spiders sometimes too, but to a lesser extent. I am unable to even kill a centipede, I just have to leave the room and hope it goes away. Interestingly enough though, I enjoy watching documentary type stuff on creepy insects or stuff like Kings of Pain. Outside of that I wouldn’t necessarily say I have a fear of elevators, but the first thing I do when getting in one is look up to see if I can climb out if it gets stuck.

  • SpookyStabbySpookyStabby Member Posts: 621

    You could possibly just have a fear of falling. Heights and falling are two separate phobias. For example, even if I'm on a tiny step ladder, no more than 3 feet off the ground, my legs get a slight shake and my palms sweat a bit. I have excellent balance but the fear is still there psychologically.


    Obviously, that's my fear. I love climbing trees but once I hit a certain point and then look down. [BAD WORD] that noise. LMFAO Call the fire department.

    Wasps

  • DragonMasterDarrenDragonMasterDarren Member Posts: 636

    funny story, I was outside one time, a wasp got underneath my jumper, I was on the floor crying for 2 minutes while my sis ran home to my mum, I haven't gone outside since (excluding walking the dog)

    Make that two of us although I do enjoy stuffed mushrooms with ground meat😀.But that is the only time I ever eat mushrooms don’t get me started on tomatoes😂 that’s another one for another day.

  • CheersCheers Member Posts: 3,426

    Love the taste of stuffed mushrooms 😁 Anything else though, I hate. And I can't even stand looking at wild mushrooms.

  • SmilerSmiler Member Posts: 119

    I'm scared of A LOT of things. I'm just a little baby bitch. But if you give me some time to prepare, i'll get over it for a while.

    There's one thing though that just fks me up and that's ghosts. Just writing about it makes me shiver. It's the feeling of being watched witout me noticing. that i fking despise. That's why you'll rarely see me not looking at somemone if he's looking at me.

  • NinjaDette1NinjaDette1 Member Posts: 1,289

    Potato chips😒.

    How do you feel about Hornets?

    I'm scrared of most insects, but I think Hornets are the worst because they are so big.

    Just one thing really.


    The unknowable cosmic horror of nothing, which everything comes from and everything goes away to. And the realization that this is where the prime consciousness that underpins all existence and permeates through countless fractured lenses in vein fleeting effort to understand itself comes from.

    Becoming aware of that ^

    Thankfully just thinking of it is like looking at a constantly shifting mental mirage. In it's unknowable nature our simple human sanity is maintained to perform its aforementioned task, an oblivious lens unto its greater self.
