2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.

1. Gerascophobia - Fear of Growing Up

Probably since I've became a senior this year, I've been afraid of what's to come for my future and life after high school. I'm going to college and all that jazz, but I just have anxiety about it for some reason.

2. Entomophobia - Fear of Insects

Something about seeing bugs(mainly in real life), makes my skin crawl. I can maybe handle them from a far, but don't bring them anywhere near me or I'll probably freak out a bit.

3. Atelophobia - Fear of Not Being Good Enough

Temporarily removed
Often times I compare myself to others, and it makes my self esteem lower. I try not to, but it can be hard not to especially when it seems like another person seems to have a much more "glamorous" life than you. I'm trying to learn to love myself and my imperfections.
