A picture of your biggest fear
While everyone knows that breaking a tooth is my claimed biggest fear, I have one other that might beat it to the punch.
Loneliness. No one likes to feel that way. I am not literally afraid of being alone, more just the emotion of being lonely. As Panda [mom] remembers, this started in about 6th grade when I moved to a new school. I was so shy, and really worried that no one would like me. For years I was too afraid to call anyone or try to play with anyone on the weekends. My mom would actually pay me to call people... sad. There have been a few other times in my life where I've gone through these stages of loneliness, maybe after a break up or a move. All I'm saying is that I hope there comes a time that loneliness isn't a factor in my life, and the fear can go away.
While being alone is a fear that many of us have, take comfort in a certain genius' wise words.
I will say that I'm very happy to be getting my bachelor's degree this Thursday, and I'm also happy to say that I've done it while I'm single. I feel like the past 4 years here in Provo at school have been such telling years for me. I am a complete different person today than I was 4 years ago. Instead of letting the "fear of being alone" play a role in my life, I get to learn and grow as a person, alone.
All the single ladies, put your hands up!
