A List of 56 of My Biggest Fears

So the other day I was really anxious and started asking my boyfriend whether every worst case scenario in my head would actually come true. It took an hour. I realized that a lot of my fears are irrational, some normal, some disturbing, some odd and some hilarious. I thought I would share them with you guys and give you a laugh and see if any of these ridiculous things in my head are stuff you guys think too. Just warning, not all of these are funny. It’s a mix.

Lifehacker actually just released a video this morning about how all fears are basically about one thing: death. It’s a really cool video. You should definitely check it out.

I have to say, most of my fears are death related. Here is a list of all the fears I can currently think of:

1. Dying

    Wow, that’s quite a list. I watched the Lifehacker video on phobias, thanks for sharing. Interesting premised.


  2. Nice. I guess my biggest fear is facing the fears or accepting my fears as fears!


  3. Oh man! So many of these are my fears, too. I’m not sure how never having an orgasm again relates to death, though. Haha! One of my strange fears is slightly ajar doors.
