    Probably only really heights/falling and very constricted spaces. Though...
    Not a big fan of parasitic helmniths such as long worms etc., or the idea of something hatching eggs inside me...

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

    Hey everyone , just wondering what is your biggest fear?
    death/parents dying

    general fear is slugs.any other insect is fine, and i would happily get in a bath filled with tarantulas. i don't understand the spider thing.and even snails are fine. but i get so scared of slugs they actually make me cry :')

    unfortunately for me this summer slugs have been somehow getting into the kitchen this summer on a daily basis,i've found them on the kitchen top, in cupboards and even in the freezer :/ and covering my shoes in slime. worst was when i went outside barefoot in the dark,thinking i'd be fine, and felt a slimy thing under my foot.cringe.i spent half an hour washing my foot that day aha

    when i was a kid i used to just pile salt on them, but i won't kill things now so i basically just have to live in fear

    Spiders is the biggest. There was a house spider in my room and I was frozen on my bed yelling for my housemate to come in and rescue me :sad:

    Other top ones include flying, the sea and assorted creepy crawlies. Oh, and space, but that doesn't really affect me a lot...:moon:

    So tempting to post some pics of giant house spiders

    My room is full of spiders for some reason. It's the thin bodied ones though. It's only the big ones with thick legs that freak me out.

    Haha, I'm like this. I refuse to smash a big spider with a book so have to use a cup/paper combo to get it out the house. So much risk :eek:
