#BEjunechallenge – day 2

2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.

Clowns
I have been scared of clowns for as long as I remember, and I absolutely hate the circus. And after seeing IT at a young age, just cemented my fear of them.
It’s not as bad now as the years go on, but I used to get get sweaty palms and increased heart rate when I saw one. I always remember my friend bringing a wee clown home from her holidays for me as a present. I tried to not let it bother me and I did leave it on my bookcase but it scared the hell outta me!
I see clowns as anything but funny, and actually do find them quite freaky and scary. It’s the whole painted smile and the big red shoes. I look at them and wonder what is going on behind the painted fake smile – as they never ever actually smile… It’s all an illusion.
I’m rambling now… Next!

Other than clowns I wouldn’t say I have any other legitimate fears as such. I don’t like creepy crawlies but I don’t have a fear of them just don’t like the buggers.

Death of loved ones

Since having kids this has become more apparent fear, I don’t know what I would do if I lost one or any other family member for that matter

Every other “fear” I have isnt really legitimate like I said before so will leave it at these two.

One thought on “#BEjunechallenge – day 2

    Sorry to hear you have a fear of clowns. I’m neither one way nor the other about them.

    A few years back, I took a job working with adults who had mental retardation and/or developmental disabilities. When I got my actual house assignment, I would be working with ‘high-functioning males’ – and was more than a little concerned, as the probability was high that I would be injured at some point. Then somehow, and don’t ask me how because I still don’t understand it myself, I ‘made my peace’ with that fact and the fear dissipated. Of course, I did wind up at the hospital 5 times in 6 months – so a little fear never hurt anybody.
