Prompt 17: Your Personality on the Page: Fear; It’s an Age Thing

This assignment was troublesome for me. I have spent too much time in the last seven months dealing with fears, both real and imagined, and I needed a break, so this one is not my best, and it’s a little light on the development. But, since one of my fears is the failure to complete a task, here is the post.

Fear is an age thing – different fears for different stages of life:

Six years old – What lurks behind that door? Is that a monster under my bed? If I go outside in the dark will I get lost?

Ten years old – Will anyone like me? When my family moves, will I make new friends?

Fourteen – I don’t want to be dorky, but I need an A in math. What happens if I fail? What happens if the other kids call me a dork?

Twenty-four – I need this job. I know I can do it. Why are there so many people interviewing? What will happen if they don’t hire me?

Thirty-four – My kids are sick. I can’t send them to school. If I stay home, my boss might be angry and I could lose my job. What can I do?

Forty-four – I love my job, but I am so tired! I need time off. I need a life!

Fifty-five – Ten years until retirement. Will I make it?

They say we have nothing to fear, but fear itself. I disagree. There’s plenty out there to fear, and it will find you!
