do you feel like you're less afraid of things alot of the time, now that youre older

or do you just have a different set of fears. what fears did you upgrade to/from

do you feel like things get even more fear-inducing for you. do you feel like conquering those fears are way more satisfying b/cuz of it

are your fears healthy or do you resent em

were the fear video games ever any good

i didn't like the fear games

i'm mostly afraid of not making the most of life and dying with regrets
i think it probably gets unhealthy because that fear can be so strong that it's paralyzing

fear is good if it's like stress about complacency from my perspective
as long as it doesn't get neurotic i guess

I think it's pretty normal to have your fears get more intricate and deep so to speak as you get older. Like you, as you begin to understand the world, your fears (as well as aspirations, etc) are naturally going to change and grow more complex.

As long as one's fears are reasonable, having some is definitely healthy. It's just part of being human. Doesn't really matter if it's a more physical fear (death, etc), or more psychological (regret, being forgotten, etc). Key word here is "reasonable" though.

And you know, fear leads to anger, anger leads to....

havent been genuinely scared by anything in a long while in terms of media. im talking like good dread inducing horror not fuckin jumpscares. thats not being scared thats being startled by LOUD NOISE

when i was younger the only driving force behind my artwork was a deep fear of not being technically good at drawing. so yeh it certainly helped me get better

When I was a child I used to be scared of riding my push bike down the hill too fast. Now I ride a motorbike.

When I was a child I used to think the government was here to help me. Now I am scared of the government's ever increasing censo-

When I was a kid I was really anxious about human extinction but five years in the workforce changed my mind.
