This is very true, as well. I also have a fear of obtaining some type of serious illness in the future...

Everybody wants a successful life. I also am struggling to attain my dreams, and I have to admit that my fear is not attaining such. I believe in Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs. I fear that I might not attain the apex which is self-actualization.

I think it is an unfortunate struggle for everyone. Everyone wants to be successful and attain their dreams. It's a hard pull to swallow when people realize how much work needs to be put in it.

My biggest fear is falling into the water and not being able to swim back up to the surface. I'm scared that I wont be able to kick my legs and move my arms. I'm also afraid that I will run out of oxygen and that I'll be unable to see which way is up and which way is down.

I'm afraid my partner's health problems will be progressive and we'll never figure out what's wrong or how to control it.

I try to live without fear. The bible keeps telling me not to fear. At times I might worry but making a fear great isn't something that I would do,
