Getting Complacent

There are still plenty of ways I can improve upon in both the professional and personal sphere, and lots of smaller and bigger goals to aspire to. There’s still plenty to do, and I’m afraid of the moment I stop pursuing them and say “okay, that’s enough, we’re good”. Ideally, that moment will never happen.

Achieving My Dreams

My biggest fear is never achieving my dreams. If you can’t stand the thought of wasting your time, and you’re scared that if you don’t get started soon, it’ll be too late to get where you want to be, then you are inside my mind. Guess what? You are your own worst enemy. You sabotage yourself because you don’t think that you deserve it. You don’t believe that it’s possible for you to achieve what you’re wanting.Here are a few things to consider:-You’re not alone. Many of us are standing in our own way of getting what we want.-Your thoughts are powerful. They can either create or prevent what you want from happening in your life. So if you’re thinking that something is impossible, it may very well be! You may have to change your thinking before anything else can change.-There are no guarantees in life, but there are many opportunities for growth and learning.

Becoming Your Own Enemy

Like a nightmare, one of my biggest fear is becoming the person I despise. Hate may be a strong word to describe something, but it is the perfect word to expound my feelings for this fear. Nothing strikes deeper in your heart than seeing someone you detest in yourself. The slow and agonizing pain of becoming your own enemy is the most upsetting thing one could imagine. Even imagining the idea and thinking the thought of it is gut-wrenching. The feeling of betrayal and disgust for myself and the person I became in that scenario sends me chills. With this constant fear in mind, I face every day with the mission to reinvent myself into a better version. A daily quest to become the complete opposite of what I fear.

Losing Someone I Love

The late Queen Elizabeth II once said that grief is the price we pay for love. Losing a loved one is one of my biggest fears. The void it creates lasts a lifetime and affects you in ways beyond your imagination. It is important to let our loved ones know how special they are to us before it is too late. Express your love and always make time for your loved ones.

Watching Your Parents Grow Old

I was studying as usual today. My father was seated next to me. I saw my father’s white hair when I saw him. This isn’t something I noticed for the first time. But today, for some reason, I grew emotional.My folks are getting on in years. True, time passes quickly. I’ll be departing for college soon and returning after a ten-year absence. I’ll only get to see them once or twice a year. They’ll be even older by the time I return.What is my greatest fear? It’s undoubtedly witnessing my loved ones age and realizing that no one remains with you forever. But, no matter how often everyone tells me that this is only a part of life, I always desire my family will be with me forever.

Everyone’s nightmare is different. I also have my own secret fears, but my biggest obsession has always been separation. My whole life, I know that no one can stay by my side forever, but every time I have to say goodbye, or fall into a separation situation, especially in case that person has gone to another world, I feel like my heart is being torn into small pieces.
