‘I was and am afraid of two things. The first was loneliness. About two years ago, I was in a dark place getting over a bad relationship. The only people I had at that time were my friends but, sometimes, when they weren’t around, that’s when it was hard being alone and left to my own thoughts. It was hard to think about how to get out of the hole I thought I was in. I’ve since learned not to care about being alone. I have my friends and family and there are a lot of people in my life now.
The other thing I’m afraid of is spiders. Something about their legs being too thin to support their bodies bothers me…the way they don’t seem to completely touch the ground just makes me shiver…and the arc to their legs gives off a creepy vibe. Ironically, hairy spiders don’t bother me as much as non-hairy spiders. Go figure.’
