My Fears

I would like to thank, Benjamin of Brothers’s Campfire for bestowing me with this honour. I am proud to be a Northwich Warrior. While writing this post I also realized that I am very bad with motivational write ups, I just can’t write philosophical advice (but I am good at giving it๐Ÿ˜œ).

Recently, I was considered for a membership to the Northwich Warrior Society by Nicholas of Northwich Watch from Brothers’ Campfire which meant writing a postย about conquering a fear, addiction, or vice. The topic itself seemed pretty easy in the first glance. So naturally, I started thinking about it in the back of my mind and tried to think of some experience or memory to do justice to the topic provided, but drew a blank every single time. I sat on it for days, but with no luck which means I don’t have a valorous story to share with you all (I have been a good, boring girl for most of my life๐Ÿ˜…). To compensate, I have decided to share with you all the list of things from which I am afraid of.

  • Fights/confrontations: This is one thing that I think I am most afraid from. I usually go to extreme lengths to avoid uncomfortable conversations due to which I end up suffering more than necessary. But recently, I am learning (with some help, of course) how to stand up for myself and not feel guilty about it. I’ve gotten better at it, but there’s still a long way to go.
  • Rats/mice/ most rodents: I can’t stand these, I will be the first to run in the opposite direction at the first sign of those. I am so disgusted by their sight that I can’t even look at them. (I don’t intend to do anything about this)
  • Then there are things which every human should be afraid of, things like terrorism, war, water crisis, global warming…you get the idea (I don’t know if something should be done about overcoming these).

I believe that our experiences shape us into what we are and what doesn’t kill us makes us only stronger!

You can be a Northwich Warrior too, visit Northwich Warrior Society and complete the task. If you are still reading then I would love to know your fears, things which you are afraid of. Your thoughts are very much welcome ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I am not afraid of confrontation and never was The only advice I can give is, if you fee strongly about something, you need to say it, so your feelings can reach others. If you feel strongly, you owe it to what you believe to stand up for whatever it is. Sometimes your voice will be the only one heard. Sometimes, your voice can change what others think, or believe. Even if you’re terrified, do it and you’ll find that it becomes easier and easier. What’s the worst thing that can happen? Nothing at all. People can laugh, dismiss you, never talk to you again (why would you want them to?) or keep arguing. None of those things can hurt you, unless you let them.

    I amore rodents and have had mice and rats as pets all my life. They are intelligent, loving, immaculate and playful. They make wonderful companions and they are more afraid of you than you could ever by of them. They are sweet and caring. But everyone feels the way they fell.

    There’s absolutely no possible reason to fear terrorism or anything else, since you have no control over what other people do. So, you would be afraid all your life when nothing might ever happen. I don’t understand that. You could get hit by a bus faster than you could be hurt by a terrorist. A million things we all do every single day are more dangerous than terrorism. Maybe if you just thought about it that way, you would no longer be afraid.

    Many years ago, I was afraid of siders, and since I never wanted to be afraid of anything, I let them walk on me until I saw how delicate and beautiful they were and how much bigger I was, so I had to be gentle with them, or I could accidentally hurt them. I was never afraid of them again.

    You can choose not to be afraid of anything. Just stop feeding your fear. You’re in charge of your life and you can play the game anyway you want to. ๐Ÿ™‚ Fear wastes time and that time comes out of your life. It stops you from being free, from taking risks and living full out. Just know that you don’t have to be afraid if you don’t want to be. It’s a choice. You’re already spending time trying not to get into a confrontation…literally thinking about avoiding something, instead of thinking about what you could say to the person in front of you. Think about that and how you spend your time…avoiding things, running away, or standing up for what you believe in and being a fierce woman who is not afraid of anything.

    1. Thank you so much, Gigi, for such thoughtful words. It really means a lot to me. โค๏ธโค๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ

      You are absolutely right about it, I am working on it for some time now and I have made some progress. Nowadays, I am ready to give a piece of mind much easily ๐Ÿ˜‰. There’s still a long way to go.

      I am sure that they are amazing there’s some problem with my brain because I love every single species including the bugs, reptiles, insects and never hesitate to get closer to them, I can pick up most of them. Maybe one day I will get over my aversion to mouse.

      That’s a great way to look at it, I will surely try to work on it.

      Wow! That’s so brave of you. Spiders are amazing little creatures. I love their sense of determination and the ability with which they make their webs, it’s so intricately designed. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™

      That’s so true, I really want to be a fierce woman who is not afraid of anything. โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ

      Thank you so much for stopping by and writing such a wonderful advice, it really means a lot to me and inspires me to be so much more. โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ
      I hope you are enjoying the festive season. Cheers, B ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. That is really something to be scared of. Sometimes our fears can only be understood best by us. I hope you can overcome it.
      Thanks for reading and joining me in my Bubble, hope you enjoy it! Sleep well tonight.
      Best, AS ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I do not like to argue but most of the time I am able to stand up for myself (when I feel it is necessary.)
    I have a sister is very prone to arguing and it is hard when a family member is
    quite confrontational.
    Bravo on your success on standing up for yourself!

    Those pesky little mice cannot hurt you . LOL
    My daughter has an aversion to mice and rats also and I remember her seeing one a long time ago and jumping on a table in our garage.
    She did not scream eek , though! Ha ,

    1. We all must know how to stand up for ourselves when the need arises. It’s good that you know how, I am seriously working on it.
      Tell me about it! I know what it is like to have family members who are ‘prone’ to arguing, I believe that it is the reason for my running away from it.
      Thank you, I have only started. ๐Ÿ™‚
      I know right! I am capable of hurting them more but I can’t stand them… I think it’s more to do with disgust than with fear.
      Your daughter is absolutely right to do so, I probably would have screamed! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thanks, Margie, for reading and engaging, I really appreciate it. ๐Ÿ™‚
