What's Your Greatest Fear?

Pillow Talk Feb 12, 2021

In a game of truth or dare, someone asked me this question. “What Is Your Greatest Fear?”

I wasn’t prepared for such a question, the seriousness of it stood out in the midst of such a fun game. It was a question that requires a deep thought yet, asked in a game that required quick answer.

“To just be,” I said. Yes, to just be!

I realised soon after I gave that answer that it was the most honest answer I had ever given to that question. In the past, my answer had always been that I was afraid of failing. But failing at what? I’ve never seemed to know, until then.

My truth is that my greatest fear is to leave this earth, having just been ordinary, having just passed through without a mark that would forever be etched in history.

But that day, while the game went on around me, I also realised that my ability to actually find an honest answer to that question comes from my now better knowledge of myself, and what I want from life. To know yourself truly, is to know your true fear.

So, do you know your greatest fear? Or are you still finding out?
