Thanks for asking this question!
I am a born again Christian, and as so, I believe that "eternal life" is for everyone who believes that Jesus is the Son of God and choose to serve Him, on this earth. My greatest fear is for others. Those who have convinced themselves that there is more than ONE way to Heaven. OR that there is no life after this one.
If THEY are right, they haven't lost a thing...If I AM right...they have lost EVERYTHING.
Thanks for letting me share!
I am 55 years old and divorced, I live alone away from all my family. I am afraid of losing my ability to work and provide for myself and what my future will bring. How am I going to keep working and existing for another 20 years? That is my biggest fear.
Simple enough, really, I'm scared of death.
My worst fear in life, is not to be able to see my daughter grow up, go to college, get married and have a family of her own. With the way the world, and society is today, it's pretty scary for our younger generation.
My worst fear in life would probably be the fear of not succeeding and being a total failure.
Ending up in one of those old folks homes where I would probably end up dying in my own filth! NO I've promised myself I must have some sort of savings so I can at least pass on in my own home-if I live that long! Lol
Being alone, like dieing alone. No family, no husband, no nothing, just me sitting on my porch yellling at kids to get off my lawn.
My worst fear is that something drastic...like rape or death .....will happen to my daughter. I want only a good life for her without her becoming someone's victim. If something horrible would happen to her, I would go to unusual boundaries to rid that person from this world. If she died, I would lose my heart, mind and probably lie down until I die. I would NOT want to live without her on this earth.
I was 33 yrs old when I had her and nothing is more important to me. I could lose my home and everything...be homeless, a bum and survive. Without her, I am NOTHING. I would want to be nothing...
I'm going to have to go with the unknown. A broad answer that covers everything from death, to supposed afterlife, to whats going to happen in our country tomorrow. I don't like not knowing things. Suspense is worse than disappointment.
That the economy will get worse and i will have to work the rest of my life instead of retiring. If the economy had not tanked i could have retired three years ago. Instead i am setting the alarm, getting up and going to work tomorrow. :(
