Most of us are scared of something. Some of us are scared of more things than others. In the world of paranoia, I am the queen.
My fears range from high and low to big and small. I'm scared of heights like most people; I don't like getting on ladders, looking over edges, and being anywhere near a balcony is not an option for this girl.
I'm terrified of most bugs, especially ladybugs. There's something so evil about ladybugs: they are quiet, they can fly, and they aren't afraid to get up in your business. They smell terrible, too. If a ladybug flies anywhere near me, I become a mess.
I fear knives. I think this may have something to do with my longtime fascination with Michael Myers from Halloween. I think he is the most terrifying character of all time, and he tends to have a knife in tow. Because of this, I even get wary around the knife at the dinner table.
But I think the biggest fear I have is my fear of change. I don't like things to be different. I don't like routine to break. Unfortunately, that fear has affected me the most. I try to avoid it and make big decisions, but usually I end up crawling back to the way things were. Because of my fear of change, I hardly try new things, and sometimes don't make progress. It's something I can definitely work on.
