30-Day Blog Challenge: What Are You Afraid Of?

What are you afraid of? It’s a question I’m going to answer today for the day 06 of 30-day blog challenge I launched a few days ago. Here, I won’t be talking about phobias – fear of heights, snakes, spiders or cockroaches. Instead, I’ll be diving a little deeper and talk about fears to the core.

what are you afraid of

Cha, what are you afraid of?

1. Giving up on the right things.

We are taught to believe that the best approach to a life of success is to not give up. Although perseverance, persistence and grit are the essential ingredients of success, so is knowing to walk away. However, when you finally do so, what if you realize you give up on the right thing? You never really know until it is done.

2. Leaving words unsaid.

Communication is an important cornerstone of relationships. It’s through our words and actions that we share our true selves with others. I believe that we all have the desire to be understood, but it can only happen if we speak our mind. What if you choose not to express yourself authentically to a person just because you think there’s always a time for that – only to regret it when that same person passes away. As much as possible, express yourself now to your parents, siblings, friends and even enemies. The more honestly you share yourself with, the more peaceful and fulfilling your life will be.


3. Fear of mediocrity

A lot of people are happy or contented being a mediocre. It may sound crazy, but it’s true. It’s either they choose to be like that or they are left with no choice. These people, I believe, once had dreams and goals for themselves but they allowed their environment to limit them. That’s why now, they are swimming in the sea of mediocrity. This is what I fear of to happen to me. I also have read somewhere that to avoid this, focus on what you want, give it your all and never give up.

4. Living without a purpose.

Sooner or later, we will depart this place. If you ask an average person what life is all about, it’s common to hear answers such as love, family, wealth, influence, success and development. Suppose, life is about these things, would we really be fulfilled if we have all of these? What about these people – front liners, war heroes? What about the stillborn babies? Does this mean that their lives are without meaning?

Life is never without meaning, and according to the source of the only truth – the bible, life should revolve around the Maker of all these things. What I really want is to live a life enjoying His gifts at all times – a life where my eyes are fixed on the eternal things and not on this temporal world. I want to live a life that is pleasing to His eyes. I am only human and my greatest fear is falling short of God’s will for me.

I really connected with this – especially your last two points. Fear of mediocrity and fear of living without a purpose are both struggles that I live with. I often second guess decisions I make in life trying to figure out if I’m falling into the trap of mediocrity or if I’m actually doing enough to find and follow my purpose. Furthermore, I find that I often question myself on that purpose and whether it really is my purpose, or if I’m allowing myself to be misled yet again. It’s hard, sometimes, to follow your heart and trust that you’re… Read more »

I belongs to the area where peoples are counting the days of life so we don’t aware about living the life. The aim of life or the meaning of life is one another thing. We are living with series of fears including social, cultural, traditional, economical and after all that PERSONAL fear of living without aim/vision/strategy and continuous struggle.

Admitting what we are afraid of is the first step to overcome those fears. I think a fear of mine is not living up to my parents’ expectations when it comes to my professional career

I love the bravery of this post. Not a lot of people will openly talk about things that scare them. Kudos.

I think living without purpose needs to be really scarry. I’m not sure what’s the most scarry thing in my life I think I would choose possibility of loosing the closest family

I have many fears and I need to face some of them. This is a good way to look at things

Losing someone dear to you in life. A family member or a friend is one of the thing I am afraid of. Because facing a reality that they will be gone forever will be the hardest thing to do. Although time heals the wound, this will really take some time.
