Subterranean Terror – repost

Homer's Scream

The first human emotion after the fall was fear - Genesis 3:10

The first human emotion after birth is fear.

The most common biblical command is 'Fear not'.

Which gives you the idea that fear is a major part of our emotional life as fallen creatures.  But of course, we hide it under a thousand pseudonyms.  Here are a few phrases we say all the time.  In italics is what we really mean.

I'm not mechanical/sporty/mathematical

I am insanely threatened by this challenge to my competence

.

I'm not really a people person

The thought of others getting close terrifies me

 .

I'm not much of an admin person

Facing up to daily responsibilities fills me with dread

 .

I'm not that tactile

I'm terrified of human touch

 .

I don't like people making a fuss over me

It feels intolerably dangerous to have attention

 .

I'm more of an ordered person

I must protect myself from the chaos

.

I'm just shy, that's all

One wrong step in public and the embarassment could kill me

.

I don't go for flashy clothes

I'm petrified of having the eyes of others on me

.

I like to look good

I'm afraid of being invisible

.

I'm quite competitive

I can't bear to be a loser

.

I don't like all that competitive stuff

I can't bear being appraised

.

I like to chew over my decisions

I'm petrified of doing it wrong

.

I tend to decide on the spot

I'm petrified good things will be taken away

.

I'm just a practical person

I fear mystery

.

I'm not really a practical person

I'm terrified of being shown up in the 'real world'

.
