People Get Real About The “Normal” Things That Scare Them (20 Posts)

Part of being human is being scared of things. Weird things, normal things, things that can’t possibly happen, things that we have to do every day. Whether we have an irrational fear of pillows or are deeply worried about being bitten by a werewolf, there is a fear for everything—so you’re not alone in your tower of anxiety.

On Reddit, people are sharing the “normal” things they are afraid of. From teeth to public speaking to overflowing toilets, there’s a phobia for everyone! 


“Aging. The thought of getting to a point where I won’t be able to take care of myself anymore scares the living daylights out of me. I’m much less scared of dying than I am of outliving my ability to do anything.” — DeathSpiral321
