What's something you were afraid of as a child?
When I was a kid I don't remember being afraid of much of anything. If I was, I probably wouldn't have done as many crazy things as I did. I was quiet and very shy around new people though. My sister was generally the instigator of any crazy we did.
As an adult I have a disturbing list of things I'm afraid of. I'm assuming it is because I have an understanding now of pain and mortality and consequences. It could have a lot to do with the fact that anxiety seems to be a family trait. Who knows?
