Fear of the Uknown - double meaning -
You know those scenes in scary movies where there's a demon/monster behind someone and you can see it but when they turn around they can't see it? Do you ever think that's actually a reality? That they're on another plane of existence and can see and even reach into our world but we have no idea their's exists. Maybe that's what's happening when you trip or someone has a heart attack, it's just some unknown being messing with us. I always think about that when I open my medicine cabinet, like they're showing themselves for a split second and then are gone by the time I close it and am in view of the mirror again.
I've always had this constant fear of the unknown all throughout my life. It's mainly where all my anxiety comes from. I overthink everything: finances, friendships, other people's perception of me, death lurking in every corner (shit, that kinda fits with The Lighter). It's with me everyday and it's a constant battle to talk myself out of these ever continuous negative thoughts. I've begun to look at each bad outcome and think of the good in it. Mainly, I'll have Bry and the kitties with me, to come home to and to support me no matter what. That helps lighten the load, knowing that I'm not alone. Knowing I'll have someone there no matter what life throws at me. Know that you are not alone. Look around you at the ones who love you, push you, support you. They believe in you and the great things life will bring to you.
Okay this was long.
