Yes Pixie isn't as fearless as you think

So most people think that with my love of horror movies that I'm pretty much not afraid of anything. Well actually there is this one fear that scares the crap outta me and so here i go with my confession:

Hi everyone! my name is Pixie and I'm an arachnophobe! 

And yes that means I haven't watched the movie Arachnophobia or Tarantula though i did think i would face my fear by watching Eight legged Freaks which was the most STUPID mistake i have EVER made i mean if i can't stand smaller real-life spiders, what would make me like monstrous sized ones. 

To you a spider looks like this:

To me it looks like this:
I don't know if that means i have an overactive imagination but thats how i see them and i can't help it. I always feel that they are about to pounce on me and suck my body dry and i think they know I'm so scared of them because wherever i go they always just seem to appear.My dad always told me not to be afraid of them because I'm actually bigger than them so what is to fear? Well dad here is some food for thought I am bigger than guns,knifes,axes and bombs does that mean I shouldn't be afraid of them too?

I don't care what anyone says i don't think i will get over my fear very soon but hopefully one day i will be able to sit down and watch Arachnophobia without twitching and scratching the skin off my body in fear. So the question for today is what do you fear the most and why?

We are gonna call this Phobias Anonymous, so start off by saying your name and what your phobia is and explain why you fear that particular thing...

Love, Peace and Bloody-coated hugs *decided to change it bloody,sugar sounded too over the top sweet*


  1. My name is Emma and my phobia is sharks. Why? Because I live in Australia, and we're surrounded by oceans full of them!

  2. Hi Emma! don't worry this is the circle of love and protection the sharks won't get you over here haha :)

  3. My name is Justine and I used to be petrified of knives near my throat. I actually got over that through my art and a fairly disturbing self-portrait. Whatever, it worked! I'm glad to say I don't have any phobias at this time. :)

    You're actually not alone at all with the spider thing. Lots of people have that fear! Maybe you can do what I did and work through it with a little art therapy. Sit down and draw a giant scary spider. Hey, it might work!

  4. Hi Justine! this is a no-knives circle of protection :). Hmm never thought of getting over my fear that way, i will definitely try that thanks but uhmm does that mean i have to keep the art work or can i throw it away?

  5. A no-knives circle? Sounds good to me! Yeah, I wasn't even painting that picture in hopes of getting over my issue, but it really did work. I was actually assigned to do some art that represented what I was most afraid of. It turned out to be one of the best things I've done, so I kept it. I think the picture really surprised/disturbed some people. Anyway, I'm sure you could do whatever you wanted with the art. I don't think there's really a rule on that. Just get it out of your system. You could even draw yourself stomping on the spider or something else empowering. :)
