List O’ Fears

As part of my plan for changing my life and reinventing myself, I know I must overcome certain fears that I have (and that’s quite a few.) Following is a list of fears that I have that stop me from doing the things I want to do and need to do in my life. This list is by no means a comprehensive list, and I will therefore be adding items to it from time to time so check back often.

I would certainly appreciate any comments that you wish to leave giving me tips or pointers for conquering any of these fears. At some point, I am also going to be giving myself “assignments” which will, more or less, force me to face some of these fears.

  1. Driving on highways
  2. Driving at night
  3. Driving at all
  4. Parking in crowded places
  5. Going to the gas station
  6. Being rejected by prospective employers
  7. Being rejected by prospective clients
  8. Being rejected by people in general
  9. Airplanes
  10. Germs
  11. Failure

  1. Your question makes me wish I could remember where I found another blog entry I read this morning, about facing fear head-on. The blogger was talking about how doing so allows us to take it on our own terms instead of having it slosh around and spill over into other aspects of our life.

    As one of my friends says, “Fear is just a feeling.” Feelings are but a small part of who each of us is, so I’ve tended to approach my fears by doing the things I’m afraid of. Doing so has helped me see them for what they are instead of what I anticipate they’ll be. The first example that jumps to mind is my fear of my own blood being outside my body. It remains, but it was diminished by my giving blood repeatedly despite the lightheadedness that ensued.

    I wish I could be helpful, but I am rooting for you!

  2. Hi! Thanks so much for your comment, and you ARE being helpful – I think I’ve told you once before how much I appreciate YOUR blog. I know what I need to do is to just face my fears so I can see them for what they are – I’m just hesitant to take that first step. Until I do, though, I’m not going to get anywhere (literally, since my biggest fear is driving!)

    Thanks for rooting for me – it really means a great deal to me!
