    I was wondering, do any of you guys have any fears which you know are stupid?
    Not like claustrophobia but something small like fear of the color blue....

    I never got over my fear of the dark [​IMG]

    Well... I don't like cotton!

    I just don't like the feel of it, I don't freak out when I see some.

    Over there.
    I actually fear blue foam mats, cuz when I was doing tae kwon do my toenail split open and all this blood was everywhere and I was so freaked out. Now my right toenail is busted, like this big split down the middle. But I didn't quit because of that, I quit cuz it was a bit too much money and I had other things like school to concentrate on. But it was fun. [​IMG] But damn those blue foam mats! [​IMG]

    I'm still a little scared of the dark when I'm outside, but I live in a pretty dodgy area. It's more a case of wanting the light so I can actually see who's trying to get my money, lol (and, of course, getting it back D:)

    That's weird, because I have no nail at all on the right big toe, because of a very, very similar incident.

    Okay so, when I was little, my parents usually brought me shopping along with them to this store next to us. Inside it there was a door, and it kept moving cause of wind drafts. My dad kept telling me some monsters lived there and shit, and to this day I do NOT want to go in that store again.

    Have you thought about confrontational therapy?

    Just get yourself some pliers and a fork ...

    I'd rather try some traditional therapy methods first.

    I am really scared of poisonous gas, land mines and gun fire. I'm not afraid of death that much, but what scares me is the method. I am also afraid of the stability of this world (see my signature), and trust between people. I think they are all stupid fears, but I can't get over them.

    The first time my teenage daughter brought a boy home, I made sure I was sat at the dinning room table, oiling a chainsaw [​IMG]

    Though not necessarily irrational, I'm afraid of eternal life.
