But what is it that really scares me? I have two things.
1. Losing my family. The day I became a mother I began living for someone else. I'm sure most mother's would say the same thing. I would do anything to protect my children from any harm. As my two older kids approach their teenage years (my son is 13, oldest daughter is 11), I find that I worry more and more about that day when they will be driving/riding in cars with their friends and going out on *gasp* dates. I may or may not have considered locking them in the basement when they start high school.
2. Drowning. This is pretty self explanatory. I have determined that I must have died in this manner in a past life because my fear is that great. At 34 years old, I've never learned to swim. I love the water (ocean, beach, pools). I just can't get too deep into the water or the anxiety kicks in. This also goes to #1 as well because I freak out when the kids get too deep. I fear they will start to drown and I won't be able to save them. I know I need to learn to swim. I want to learn to swim. It's just hard to get through the wall of panic!
Do you have irrational fears? What are you most afraid of?
