What are you scared of?

There is this thing that I love to do. I love to ask situational/random questions! I love hearing to the answers people give. It's really funny to know how much we differ from one another in the way we think. So, today, since I don't have anyone with me here now to ask random questions, I shall tell you, my dear readers random things about me. :)
Today's topic would be on fear. We all have fear in us. Let me tell you what I'm really afraid of.
1)Heights. I'm so so scared of heights. I can't even stand in the top floor of my institute without this fear that I'll fall off! Its really scary to look down. Whenever I look down from a really tall building, I always feel like there is this magnetic force that is pulling me towards it. You know. Like I'm being lured or something. I have this fear that I'll die. My heart starts raising and I'll start feeling dizzy.
2)Darkness. I'm scared of the dark. I mean I can handle switching off the lights in the night and walking to my bed but i really cant walk into a dark room or place all by myself.
3) Ghosts. Ok. I know what you are thinking. Ghosts don't exist and all. Well, I'm not in the position to argue on the topic of their existence but I'll just admit that I'd probably be the first one to faint if I ever see one. And, that would probably explain my fear of darkness. :)
Anyway, its quite fun to have all this fears in me. Reminds me that I'm only human and I should not expect to be perfect. So, I'm celebrating my fears and if you ask me, I never want to conquer my fears. They make my life more colourful indeed! And, here is a list of really funny phobias that I found online.
