چالش رایتینگ - ترس

Hi there!

Welcome to this week’s Writing Challenge.
Today, we want to talk about “Fears”.

Fear is a blessing and a curse.
Sometimes it helps, sometimes it limits you and your vision.
Sometimes it’s rational and sometimes it’s nothing more than a crazy phobia!

Now, let’s get started.
I want you to write about your views and opinions on this matter.

First of all, please remember, try not to let it exceed 200 words.

Secondly, if you have no idea what to write about, don’t worry. You can simply answer the questions but again, don’t forget to include your ideas too.

Next, if you want to receive feedback, let me know.

And finally, the number of likes will be counted for each essay. Each like equals to a point. So, the more likes your essay takes, the more points you will have.

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

–Dale Carnegie

Hey man, thanks for this interesting topic. :+1:

I do scare of “arthropods” that are living on the ground like spiders, centipedes, scorpions and such. Why? because they scare the hell out of me. and there’s no way to deal with this kind of fear someday. :))

Once we were camping in a forest park in east of Tehran. It was almost after midnight and all of a sudden I felt something is behind me. But, before I realize what the hell it was, my dad took care of it and killed it instantly. Later I found out it was a frigging Tarantula. :expressionless:

I’m a huge fan of Horror and Slasher movies. And my favorite movie is Halloween 1978.

I try not to. :))

I’m not afraid of death, but I’m afraid of dying!.

I’m afraid of the only animal that is a snake. They are really ugly and dangerous, and it 's scary for me to think of touching them.

And about horror movies, I saw a movie called “Summoning the Soul” with my friends that I did not sleep well for a week.

My biggest fear in life is death. I know this is a fact but I am afraid of it

And I strongly believe in this sentence:Fear of suffering is worse than suffering itself

And I hope that the day will come when none of us will be afraid of what people will say

Thanks for making this challenge

Hello there every one
Hope to have good afternoon :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Pretty well :innocent:

As matter of the fact I afraid from lizard :grimacing:
It was disgusting animal that I know :nauseated_face::sneezing_face:
And on the other hand I don’t afraid from snake
Moreover they 're lovely and beautiful. :snake:

Did you stick in bad situations?
We’d gone to mountain with my family before the dogs followed us .
Fortunately they 'd smelled wolf’s smell and they barked .
Whereas we ran toward the cars I saw the wolf
Thanks god we rescued. :grimacing:
It was terrible experience that I 've had.

I’m not keen on terrible movies.
But once I watched ‘‘eat’’
Maybe I’m wrong but it’s about a crown .

Unfortunately if I see lizard just I can shout
Till my family vacuum it or kill it .:anguished:

Nevertheless I think about it but I realize that I have any biggest fear in my life .
Generally I 've understand that this life doesn’t have value to afraid and destroy your valuable time.

Thanks a million for reading. :herb::shamrock::four_leaf_clover::seedling::leaves:

Hello there.

We face fear every day. Some are small and momentary. Merely automatic reactions to our surroundings. Like when a car passes you in a flash of a second and barely misses you which usually is followed by an intake of breath or in some cases an exclamation like" oh my god!" Or a couple of swear words.

Some are lingering and so large that tower over us. These are rooted fears. Fears which are the ever- present subjects of our minds.

We think about them, dread them and make them much much bigger than they really are. As I always say, we go through our fears more than ten times before we actually face them.

When we are kids, we fear fictions and movie monsters. Unreal things. Things we never really need to be worried about or go through them.

As we get older, our fears become more real. We fear defeat, disappointment and loss. We fear to speak our mind in a crowd of people, to be ourselves, to take actions and dare to risk. And that’s when we need to be brave and dauntless.

I’m reading" the five second rule" which is a wonderful book to read and it teaches how to perform acts of everyday courage. I liked it so much and I highly recommend reading it.

I would be very thankful if you would give me a feedback.

Hi there Giso :wave:

As far as I’m concerned, there are no grammatical mistakes in your essay (Except title capitalization and some missing commas which are not that important here).

Enjoyed your views on the matter :blush::rose:

Thank you very much for participating :pray:

AJ talks about this one a lot :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: I’m not a fan of self-improvement books but I’ll try to read it :v:

I’m not either. They are dead boring. But this isn’t. I promise.

It made me cry in one of its last chapters though it shouldn’t have because it wasn’t a novel, for crying out loud! :joy:

Exactly! And they’re not always scientifically accurate.

Wow, I guess that’s something :sweat_smile:

Thank you for your suggestion, I will definitely read it :ok_hand:
