At first I was afraid, I was petrified…

People are afraid of all kinds of things: spiders, the dark, or being enclosed in small spaces. Tell us about your greatest fear — rational or irrational.

I have three main fears.

The first one is being deserted by everyone I love. This isn’t my biggest fear because I would be able to handle it. I would also be able to understand why, if it ever came to that point in reality.

I am afraid of screaming that I can’t understand. This is kind of ironic because I like listening to some metal bands, with Crown the Empire, Attila, Bullet for my Valentine, Escape the Fate are the ones I listen to the most. Those are great, but they don’t scare me like french screamo… Have you ever heard french screamo? Mon dieu… 

My biggest fear took me a while to understand. At first I thought I was afraid of ghosts… then I thought it was a fear of the dark… but now, I know that I am actually afraid of going blind. I remember seeing my brother getting glasses the first time, and I wanted some (I regret that now, haha). Over time, my eyes started getting worse, even though my understanding of what I see is increasing (I can see the slightest difference in color). I really started to realize that I was afraid of being blind when my friend blindfolded me and told me to try to find her. I felt lost, and even though it was a lot brighter than it could have been, it was still pretty dark. I am still really scared of the dark, but now I know that I am just terrified of being blind.
