What is your greatest fear?

Post by Donnavila Marie01 » 03 May 2017, 00:08

Kailey and Sammy were threatened when they learned that a new animal will join them on the farm. In real life situation, we have our greatest fear. What is your greatest fear? My greatest fear is to realize in the feature that I spent my life for nothing.

I don't know if I have a greatest fear. I want to make sure I'm living life to the fullest, but I think my husband and I are doing pretty well with this. So, I'm not sure... :eusa-think:

That is my greatest fear as well. The fear that I haven't accomplished anything in my life or the fear that I'm not doing anything meaningful with my life. Both of these fears bother me greatly.

Not achieving anything meaningful - but I seem to be living all my greatest fears anyway.

My greatest fear is losing my family in a horrible accident. I love my family and I would be terrified to lose them.

Ditto! This is my greatest fear as well.

It's quite difficult to pinpoint a "greatest" fear. I think it would be the most terrifying occurrence in a specific circumstance. Fears can range from things like phobias to elements in a dream, but I think the non-tangible fears like not leaving a legacy in your lifetime or having no one miss you when you are gone really give you pause for thought. In saying that, watching movies about possession scare the daylights out of me! And if I'm being honest, being in an accident where I lose my senses like sight or hearing and having to rely on someone to take care of me. I'm not big on change so that would be terrifying. Or being burnt to death (oh my gosh I'm being morbid today!).

I think I might have to agree with this fear. I was having trouble thinking of anything specific, but this one resonates with me.
