It’s time for Question 2 of the 30 Questions!! I am really LOVING these!!!
Question 2: Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears…
This is a tough one. I can think of silly ones…afraid of spiders and snakes but a legitimate fear?? Hmmmm….
1. I am afraid of being alone for the rest of my life. As that dang 30th birthday draws closer I am seriously afraid that I might wind up the crazy lady with 50 dogs. I always imagined myslef finding my prince charming in college, getting married, and having a baby or two by the time I turned 30. Not how it turned out At. All. I met many prince charmings but none that swept me off my feet for good. Now I am truly afraid of ending up alone and having nothing but my Sophie puppy. Sigh….
2. I am afraid of dying young. Both of my parents died before 45. That’s scary to me. I am always afraid every time I get sick or notice smething different about myself that is something serious. I will cove my parents in Question 3…so more on that later. But before you think I’m totally CRAY I do have an awesome step-dad I call Dad and his wife I call my step-mom. My family is interesting…….
3. I am afraid of my car. Not of the car itself or even of driving but I am afraid everytime a light comes on or it makes a funny noise. I just know it will be something serious and will be expensive to fix and my insurance won’t cover it…that kind of stuff FREAKS. ME. OUT.
So there you have it. My fears. Weird ones but they are mine after all….
Wow, I would be really afraid of the second one two if I was in the situation. I’m really sorry about that, but I’m so glad you have a “step-in” family that loves and cares about you just as much! Those are some legitimate fears!
I can relate to your first fear, apart from that I’ll be a crazy cat lady rather than a crazy dog lady.
I hope your weekend is bright.
I can also relate to #1. I’ve always told myself it would all just work out someday, but now, at 25, I’m worried that I put too much faith in that. I’m going to try to actually make an effort to meet new people, instead of just expecting it to fall into my lap. I hate when people say “You’ll find it when you stop looking for it.” Yeah, well, I haven’t been looking, and I’m still alone. New outlook, starting now.
Also, I’m so sorry about your parents. Life is so precious.
That’s a tough question and your answers are so real and honest.
I’m so sorry about #2.

This post is so real – it’s really refreshing. I’m so sorry about your parents. I have a fear of being by myself, too… I feel like Prince Charming is never going to come. I have to remind myself that God has a plan!
