Conquering Fears

My biggest fear is REJECTION!! I have avoided situations and tasks because of fear of rejection. I have done it so much that avoiding has become so comfortable and the thought of facing the fear has almost been paralyzing. Giving into fear has caused me not to have as much progression in life as I would like. But today was different!! Today I took a huge step in conquering one of my biggest fears and it was not as bad as I thought it would be, in fact it was kinda easy. ...more

I Don't Have Blogophobia, But I Fear I Have To Write This

People don't like to be told they are 'phobic'. It doesn't matter what the phobia is; if you tell them they are something-o-phobic, they will immediately go out and try to prove you wrong. I think they are Phobiaphobic, but I'm not a doctor, so I can't diagnose.

New Santa: Same Old Fears

I cannot be the only one…who has noticed how much better the “mall” Santa's are looking lately, gone are the days of red polyester suits, cotton masquerading as fur, and those weird shiny angel hair beards, the current Santa’s are bringing it.  Although, even with Santa's modern make-over, the kids standing in the crowded lines, between the red crushed velvet ropes, have the same terror in their eyes I remember from my time as a kid waiting to step up to Santa's throne. ...more

Being Afraid of the Dark Is for Amateurs

Everyone is afraid of something. But for me, I like to go big or go home. I don’t fear the dark, or heights, or snakes. Wait…actually, I do fear all of those things. But then I also fear completely irrational things on top of your average, run-of-the-mill phobias. I have already confessed my propensity for irrational fear when it comes to my children in my Instagram Diary of Anxiety. But I am not new to this game....more
