Re: Something that used to scare you, but no longer does?

Little lizards. At first they startled me. Now I can calmly catch & release any that get into our lanai. As for snakes, they still spook me. No poisonous ones, but creep me out when I come across one in the yard.

Surgery. I had a Hysterectomy in January of 2017. I was in therapy for two years before I got it to work myself up to it. It's still not something I would look forward to, but it's not something I shake in fear thinking about now.

Re: Something that used to scare you, but no longer does?


so many things!!!!....

 

when younger( in my 20's and 30's  I thought  root canals, mercury fillings, fluoride treatments and X rays were all  so dangerous and out to kill me....

 

 Well now into my 60's , I have a mouth full of root canals.... the mercury that was in all my teeth as a child did not kill me.... nor has the floride in my water or the floride in the Tooth paste I use.... I have a million Xrays since having had both hips and knees replaced .... still alive a kicking with excellent health.

 

 I figure that if I survived my childhood with: 

 

no helmets when riding my bike...

 

no seat belts in the cars..

 

. ate a ton of candy and dairy and ate lots of meat..

 

 Nothing scares me now( except perhaps a huge earthquake or something like that.)

Spiders and ants. Not afraid, just a little creeped out.

Snakes and spiders used to scare me, but no longer do.  I still have a fear of fire after a few incidents as a kid.

Dying....I used to be terrifed of dying. Now, it doesn't bother me. I know I'll be in a better place.

Re: Something that used to scare you, but no longer does?

As a teenager even into my early twenties, I was really scared thinking about having

a child, but years later when I grew up I realized I could do this.

 

So glad that I conquered my fear.
