am not afraid of nightmares.They are just dreams and I appriciate dreams. I
feel nice when I am dreaming,even if I am awake.I don't want to confess what
i'm afraid of because I'll realise that I don't differ from anybody else and
all people want to make a difference.I guess I get sad because deep inside I
know that my dreams won't come true and soon I'll be sucked in the reality that
covers us all.I am so afraid that I won't be able to live my life the way I
want it and I know that I'll hurt people I love if I try to do so.

much freedom scares me. The feeling that you can do anything ties my hands,
my feelings. If you where in a room and somebody told you that you are free
to run out of there, in to: everywhere and nowhere...would you run? or stay
in?. I'm staying in looking out of the window...

worst nightmare would i guess be confronting my father who is actually dead,him
being in a state of need and me not being able to help him.Or in a totally different
case having to deal with a paranormal or supernatural power of which origins
or intentions i have no knowledge
--Maira, Femlae, Greece
afraid i have nothing to say. I feel like i'm wound up and empty inside. I'
m afraid of meeting people, take part in discussions, i think they will laugh
on me. Fear is prison and i'm afraid i'm a prisoner...

am afraid of the fact that time will never stop and it goes so quickly that
soon i will be old. The thing is if we didn't have time we would'nt beable to
do anything at all. Things can be over in a second and then all we have left
is in our memory.

I afraid of something? Being ill I would consider as being the worst! In that
case death is considered to be a relief!! While living in good health reminds
me of my big fear: misery!!!

Fear is a block to our creativity, it hinders us from living life to the absolute
max, from experiencing everything, from feeling fulfilled. Fullfilment is a
state we seek, we always want to be happy, and do not want sadness, we fear
it, we attempt to escape it because "its not fun". Understanding that the human
experience has all stimuli in store for us, we perhaps might be able to get
over our "fears". We fear unwanted situations, but its only an emotion. Try
to erase that emotion, erase expectations and live life in the present moment
only. As an artist, this has made my mind travel further into the depths of
conciousness, as dark and as light as it may get. I know myself, and I have
somewhat proved to myself that any fear that I have only limits me, my existance
and my taste of the human experience. There exists no reason to live with fears.

having no real friends and most important the possibility of not finding the
real love between a man and a woman.
--Matina, Female, Greece
* That I will one day wake up and realize that I married the wrong person and
that I can't leave him (due to children or other factors). * Realizing that
moving back to Greece was the wrong decision / being "stuck" in Greece. * Being
envious of what others have and realizing that I could've had those things too,
if I had chosen a different path in life. These are my fears for the moment.
Hopefully in the future these fears will be irrelevant.

am afraid of earth... this closed system that you cannot escape, the endless
plains where there is no way out.... the regurarity and predictability of all
things.... where there is nothing to explore...and nothing to wait to happen
to you... I am afraid of myself when my feelings overwhelm me and I wanna find
a drastic way out of all my trivialities... I am afraid of everything restricting...even
if that is an elevator or a marriage or the commitment to a child for all your
life... I am afraid that I will be trapped into some kind of arrangement that
will sap my freedom and creativity...I am afraid of logical people....

afraid of hurting the persons I love. Which I do very often.
--Nassia, Female, Greece
like your topic, and I love the graphics you have selected. I also like the
opening statement on your web cite. Here goes what I can tell you about my fears:
I am afraid not of people or places or circumstances most of the time. What
fears me the most is my self. Precisely, I am most afraid of the sins that I
may commit in the future. Not unintentional sins or harming others without intention,
but sins that I commit willingly so very often. I believe in God, so I believe
that no one can harm me, if harm is considered to be sins of the heart or of
the body, unless I, with my free will, commit sin. In that sense I am the only
one who can harm myself in a Christian sense. Thus, I fear my sins more than
anything else, for they alone can harm my body and soul. Good luck with your
search. It is surely an interesting quest. I hope it ansewrs questions about
your fears. I hope it opens windows to your art work.

afraid of me! I'm afraid of me, being so dreamy, not being able to land in the
real world. I get afraid when I see all the people around me, so much different
than me .I am afraid that all my dreams will be an obstacle in finding happiness
because I always feel so unsatisfied .when I do something or when I am somewhere
I wish I could be somewhere else .I feel that my life is boring ...I fear of
not living the way I wish. I fear that I won't be able to change that! I love
life and there are so many things I wish I could do and hope that Iíll do!!!
--Alex, Female, Greece
greatest fear is the chaos that will definitely come if those of us alive today
continue as we are and leave behind a world uninhabitable for our children -
for my son. My personal responsibility for that catastrophe - however tiny -
would be unbearable to carry.
--Michael, Male, Greece
afraid of loneliness and I'm afraid of illness. My worse nightmare is finding
my self in pain, lying on a bed with no one around to hold my hand and tell
me that I'm not alone. I'm afraid of loosing the people that I love. I'm afraid
of letting down the people that love me.
--Alexandra, Female, Greece
I am afraid that one morning I wont be able to wake up. I fear that this might
happen really soon. I believe that I will die very young without enjoying the
"good" life. Sometimes I feel that my surroundings won't help me to live more...
--Annie, Female, Greece
i was a kid i used to have the same nightmare all over again:it was a strange
feeling of loosing the sense of porpotions in a way that things around me used
to have uneven sizes comparing to real life.Well it may sound kind of strange
but it is difficult to explain since it was more like a feeling than a real
life experience.If i tried to think about my biggest fear today maybe i would
say that what i fear the most is actually to disappoint myself and loose my
self respect. This disappointment may be due to the fact that I failed to give
the best of my love to the persons who deserve it. I also fear the fact not
being able to give myself the best that I deserve.Well these are my fears today.I
you ask me tomorrow i may have different things to tell you!!!AU REVOIR everybody.
--Alexis, Male, Greece
things that come to mind for me: fear of flying (sweating palms and feet during
takeoff, landing and turbulence), fear of falling (I could never find the courage
to bungee jump or parachute), fear of needles (I can look at the most gruesome
scenes on tv but I close my eyes when a syringe shows up - and I faint when
somebody takes blood from me), fear of suddenly realizing in public that I am
naked (this was only in my childhood dreams, may be this is why I turned out
an exhibitionist, to fight my fear), fear of being in a free-falling elevator
(also a childhood dream with no apparent manifestation in adulthood), fear of
talking to the public (which I overcome after few minutes of talking to my audience),

stand in a white room with a lot of people. I'm wearing black and I'm beautiful
but nobody sees me. I speak but nobody listens.
--Zoe, Female, Greece
completely terrified that I won't be able to get everything done and find funding
for this exhibition.
