For today’s The Daily Post :
How would your life be different if you were incapable of feeling fear? Would your life be better or worse than it is now?
(Thanks, Nique Lektra, for inspiring this prompt!)
my immediate thought was, fear what? I’d have a hard time thinking up something that I fear although after today, I had no trouble coming up with “I fear losing my children”.
I honestly can’t say that my life would be better or worse – if I had no children I wouldn’t have this fear. If I didn’t fear losing them but still had them, well that would never be but if I didn’t fear for their safety I’d be careless with them and that would be a worse life….and probably a case for Child Protective Services?
If I didn’t have kids to fear losing I wouldn’t necessarily know what I was missing but since I do have them I know my life wouldn’t be as rich and full and meaningful as it is —-I seem to be having a hard time with this question – am I the only one?
