People always talk about there biggest fears and phobias, but I never really had one to talk about.
I have no real fear of an animal, I enjoy the creepy crawlers, I like all domestic animals, and I respect the wildlife. I don't have any odd fears or irrational things or the paranormal, or things that are harmless, yet some seem to develop a fear of. I have a basically faux-phobia of clowns... but I mean really... they can be creepy...
Over the last year I have finally been developing a fear, my biggest and only real fear. Growing Old. Now I know what you may say, no Scotty, that is a fear of death, but no, that is not the case. I am completely at peace with death, and I have never feared for a moment my the end of my life, even in the close situations when it has nearly been taken. No, death is not a worry. It is become old. Loosing my sight, growing weak, looks beginning to fade, memory becoming hazy, lack of energy. I know there are things you can do to slow these things but eventually they will happen.
And the biggest reason this is my one true fear, is because it is inevitable. You cannot put off getting old. Everyday brings you one step closer. Other fears can be averted and dealt with, but there is no remedy, no cure, no protection from age.
I know I have many youthful years ahead of me, but I know on the horizon comes that inevitable.
I plan to make a complementary video to this soon.
