    I fear being common, average, pointless, weak, small, incompetent, etc... I have to be a magnificent, powerful, and brilliant human being. (Not in the eyes of other people, or in any way that is only measured by external success, but in my own opinion.)

    So, in many ways, I'm afraid to fully try to reach my potential, because I might fall short and destroy my self-worth in the process. It sounds pathetic, but it's just like any other fear. When you have an unhealthy outlook, it controls you and holds you back, and when you have a healthy outlook, it's your greatest motivation.

    I don't have any desire to live a life that seems small to me, but I don't want my "magnificence" to be achieved through pathetic means of a bloated ego, narcissism, or megalomania. I simply want to live the most amazing life I can imagine.

    Things like rejection, loss, and pain are barely comparable to my main fear.

    I haven't dwelled upon my fears for so long, I've forgotten what they were. Even if I had one, I strongly trust and rely on my ability to figure out a solution.

    Two of my recent primary concerns are health and financial security.

    With that in consideration, my focus on poor health would be the closest thing to fear at this moment.

    In the flesh, lack of control.

    In the spirit, nothing.

    - Losing loved ones.
    - Seeing people and/or animals suffer.
    - The eighties. (I don't know, they just seem so creepy, the ugly fashion back then which is becoming totally hot again, the time when Madonna sounded the way Britney Spears sounds right know, the horrible music and especially "I'm walking on suuuuuuuunshiiiiiiiiiiine, Oo0oOoOO0OoO00OoO0OOOoo0"a song that is still being sung by thirteen year olds that are way to happy and who I just want to smack in the face)
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    I think we've threaded on this before, but I'll repeat:
