    Default Eliminate one fear

    If a genie granted you one wish that you could use to eliminate one fear, which fear would you choose? Why did you choose that fear? What other fears were you considering? Walk me through your thought process, please. None of the "I like myself just the way I am" evasion.

    Tough question. I have a fear of heights, but I want the feeling of accomplishment of eliminating that fear by myself one day. A year ago I was afraid of everything, but now I only have a few. I suppose if it wasn't an evil genie, I would ask him to take away my fear of losing everyone important to me. I don't know if it would be a wise fear to lose, but it is the one that keeps me up some nights.

    I don't remember clicking this posted but now that I have I shall answer.

    I would eliminate the fear of talking in front of people. I have to this all the time or I will and I often freeze, it's really bad. I can't explain why I'm so terrified I know majority of everyone else is terrified. No matter how much I tell myself this I still can not talk in front of people. Maybe I feel judged, maybe I don't ever have much to say, or maybe I feel like everything I have to say has been said before. That's the only real fear I have (besides being anally probed by airport security)

    I think I'd eliminate my fear of fears.

    Fear of not keeping my body healthy enough that I'll be too weak to handle some unexpected challenge and get pwned. (Note: unrelated to my level of health lately. This has always stressed me out. I always way over-pack for canoe tripping, for example, out of this fear.)

    I do this even for exam studying. I'm too worried to stay up really late to mess up my sleeping habits and then I'll crash during the exam. I don't have anxiety about writing it but I do about studying

    I wish I didn't care so much about what others think or how I'm being perceived. Originally I was going to say I would like to rid of my fear of public speaking, but I think that fear stems from extreme self-consciousness. This is not an everyday fear, it happens in waves...just enough to get on my nerves and it prevents me from being who I really am.

    I believe it's getting better as I age, so maybe I won't need a genie.

    Fear of [being judged by] people.

    I'm sure the reasons are obvious.

    Fear of trying new stuff, which seems to be thew source of a lot of other problematic fears. I have the logic to handle the obviously stupid stuff.

    I suspect this may be why I fear public speaking.
