This site will feature Bible-based articles some days, silly posts and quotes at least twice a week and facts about Jack the Ripper-to begin with.

Hello, kiddies!  It is Thursday and time for the FWT prompt.  If you would like to join us, please do.  Just click on Andrea’s beautiful picture and add it to your post and send it to her comments box.
This week, the prompt is: What is too scary to write about?
Well, I have several things i am afraid of.  My whole life is defined by fear-I have lived in fear for a long time.  In my house, I learned to fear, fear making a mistake-those were bad and not easily forgivable.  I fear doing something wrong or making someone mad.  I hate it when people get mad at me.  I feel terrified they are going to leave me.  My biggest fear is being abandoned and when someone is mad at me, I feel like they think I am the worst person in the world and will leave me.  I even hate it when strangers get mad at me.  I’m not sure why,  Maybe one day I’ll figure it out.

Let My Words Be Few…


Comments on: "Fewer Words Thursday-Too Scary" (14)

  1. […] go and visit HOLLY @  , my faithful FWTH partner, and show her some […]

  2. I understand completely! It was like you wrote down the memoire of my past. Holly I am here to tell you, that when you are ready you will figure it out…I wrote a bit about that here:
    Thanks again for partnering with me, I enjoy your blog very much.
    Have a blessed day – night.

  3. You and I sound a lot alike. My husband describes me as “very cautious”, but really there is a lot of apprehension, anxiety, and downright fear. It may be a lot of the reason I’ve been a people pleaser for most of my life. At 56 I am just now learning to live my own life, instead of the life everyone else wants me to live.
    You should write more about this Holly. It will help you figure it out.

  4. I suffer from Anxiety Disorder so some of my fears are completely irrational & really don’t make sense. Since I’v had this illness for about 10 years now I get claustrophobic in crowded places very easily. And I can’t handle being in social situations very well either. Those things never really bothered me much in my pre-anxiety days

    • Wow! I never would have guessed. I felt like I would be alone in this and thought maybe I would lose viewers. Thanks for your honesty.

      • Holly, the more I express who I really am the more I’m finding that there are MANY people who can relate!

      • I find the social-phobic/anxiety the hardest for people to understand especially when we get invited to various get togethers with friends & I don’t really want to go because of how I feel.

  5. Tony, do you know whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert? I know that you said that this all started about 10 years ago, and that it’s a change in your personality, but for me, its just part of being an introvert. For years I exhausted myself trying to be a social person, but the fact is that some of us, (about a third of the population), don’t need very many friends, dislike large group functions,( such as parties), hate talking on the phone and NEED some solitude every day. It takes a lot of energy for us to be with people, and we recharge in solitude. Extroverts are the opposite…it takes a lot of energy to be alone, and they recharge by being with people…the more the better. For years I didn’t know what an introvert was, let alone that I am one. But now that I do, and maybe also because I’m getting older and FINALLY maturing, LOL, I’m better able to lay other peoples expectations aside and just be who I am. Some days, (not all), that means giving myself permission to eat lunch by myself instead of in the faculty room. It usually means not answering the phone, and only going to those functions that I actually want to go to. I make exceptions for my extrovert spouse, because I love him and don’t want him to have to live his life as if I didn’t exist, but he understands me, and after 35 years, we’ve struck a balance. Do you blog? One of the ways I’ve helped friends and acquaintances to understand is to explain it on my blog.

    • Definitely an introvert & have always been like that. Just been worse since I’ve had the anxiety disorder. It doesn’t bother me keeping to myself as I prefer it but others often don’t understand when I’d rather be on my own. I prefer to just spend my time at home with my wife rather than being overly involved with other people.

  6. I like to go out because I need to be around people but I also need to be alone sometimes.
