What are your fears?

Fears that you know will cripple any advancements that you have for the future, whether it be business or personal. How has this affected you? Why do you think you have these fears and what efforts have you taken to address the issue?

I've got a girlfriend right now, and she's starting to get to the age where she's thinking about getting kids, which is exciting...because we're going to have to break up. She and I worry about different things. The other day, I asked her, "What do you fear the most?" She said, "I fear you'll meet someone else, you'll leave me, and I'll be all alone." And she asked me, "What do you fear the most?" And I was like, "Bears!" A bear is an intimidating animal, although I found out that the hippo kills the most humans per year. I didn't know hippos ate humans; I just thought they ate those little white marbles. I thought that was the whole point of Hungry Hungry Hippos - that hippos were marblevores.

Siu, are you studying for a test? Practicing for a job interview?

Preparing for when I show up?

Now that that's out of the way, my next biggest fear is myself. I shan't elaborate.

I don't like heights.
I have a private pilot's ticket, and I'm ok in an airplane, but in a building not so much. I'm not getting near the edge of (insert precipice here) for love or money.

I'm also not hip on dying or dying alone. But I can rationalize inevitability, so I'm ok with it.

I fear everything at least a little bit. On a day to day basis, I think there is nothing more fun than riding a motorcycle. I rode one for ten years, and loved just about every minute I was on a bike, but when I was off the bike I often thought about my impending doom. I haven't ridden in about three years and I don't know if I'll ever buy another motorcycle.

WTF???!!! I was almost trampled by a hippo when I was on safari in Kenya. I had no idea they had a blood lust for humans. I thought they were herbivores, not marblevores or carnivores.
