There is not much in life I truly fear. I have anxiety and worries much more than I should. But true fear… that’s different.
I suppose what I fear most is helplessness. The pest issue we’ve had over the last couple months makes me feel helpless but its becoming more tolerable knowing I’m doing everything I can do. And of course money issues make me feel helpless at times too, but everything has its way of working out most of the time. If my kids are sick or injured and there is nothing I can do to make it better it makes me feel helpless, even when they are receiving the best treatment or medical care.
When I am sick or injured and cannot help myself or my kiddos, its the worst feeling in the world. That would be my true fear… that depth of helplessness. For instance, if I was to lose limbs or become paralyzed, that would be the worst helplessness. I would rather die than deal with such incapacity.
