Let's face it. We all have fears. Even those of us who claim that we "aren't afraid of anything". Fear is a sign of humanity. I wouldn't be too quick to claim that you are fearless, because underneath it, you're saying "I'm not human."
No one can honestly say they are fearless. It doesn't have to be a big deal or major event, but when something, no matter how small, makes you jump or makes your heart pound just a little faster, it's fear showing its face.
Fear, however, can be masked. You can see something that scares you, but keep a straight face, even though your insides are screaming. Many of us mask our fear, because fear is looked upon as being a sign of weakness. I see fear as a sign of strength. After all, if we didn't fear, life would be simple, but we would be empty.
This site used to have a list of my fears, and I told everyone they could submit their fears as well. Well, I have decided to change it, because it got a little boring to be honest. Now, this site will have a list of Halloween/Horror related phobias, and their meanings.
