Prompt: Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and describe how they became fears.
Haunted houses, ghosts, evil spirits, etc.: I've always hated things like this, which is why I dread Halloween. I think this especially became a fear for me when I watched a funny but creepy movie when I was 8. I've never been able to be undisturbed by things like this ever since.
Pitch black dark: I'm not especially afraid of the dark anymore but I always get nervous when I have to go inside a really dark room at night. I think this one is pretty self-explanatory.
Sharp blades, poisonous/venomous animals, animals that tend to attack: Don't get me wrong, I love animals. I'm not very afraid of big poisonous animals such as snakes anymore after I went to a snake emporium in Florida, but they still scare me a little bit, only because they feel threatening. However, there's something really beautiful about every animal, even when it is threatening or scary. I think sharp blades safely fits into this category too, because what I'm really afraid of when it comes to attacking or venomous/poisonous animals and sharp blades is the possibility of pain. I think we all have some fear of that nature at some point in life.
What's amazing about all these things is that I have no reason to fear them, because of God.
Question for the Reader: What are your secret fears?
