    Fear of loving someone and having to watch them die, yet not being able to do anything about it.


    No answers how to get over it.

    Yes, that's what I'd say too.

    And what's the deal with that? We'd think that Ti people would just be able to assess someone else's opinion as faulty and shrug it off.

    With me, it can be debilitating, though. Even when I know the criticism is unfounded or irrelevant.

    Actually, I really think the thing that sucks about fear is not the experience of it as much as the exhaustion and effort used to avoid the feeling. It's a fear of fear.

    You should always follow your own rules.

    Once you explained yourself, your choice made a great deal of sense. (and yup, I agree with the logic... it's the running from fear that kills us).

    Fear of death
    Fear of rejection
    Fear of success

    Yes I can count.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I'd eliminate my fear of plants with large leaves!

    (I'm quite serious there- I won't even buy heads of Romaine because the large leaves freak me out- I also refuse to leave the path while hiking if there are plants with large leaves along it *shudder*)

    You fear approaching them confidently?

    What do you think is at the bottom of that fear?

    Interesting fear. Any ideas where it's from? (If you care to share...)
