I have been thinking about this question after coming back from my company Off Site Meeting in Malacca.
This is one the questions in a questionnaire for a wonderful activity planned by the organizers. Apparently my answer to this question is ‘NOTHING’.
We had only few minutes to complete the entire questionnaire, meaning that time is a constraint. At the moment, when I read the question, my brain started to spin (like a hard disk start looking for the answer from the sectors). After a few seconds, I decided to skip this question first because I really had no idea about the answer.
The answer could be as simple as just an insect or as deep as a life’s philosophy.
The possible answers that actually first flashed in my mind were cockroach, rat, snake, spider…
Emm… may be it could be a situation for example exam, presentation, losing trust, losing relationship, losing friends and family, death, paralyzed, no money, no woman, can’t get married, etc…
Or it could be a feeling like loneliness, darkness, depression or whatever…
Or may be it is someone who having terrible attitude, bad behavior, or personalities that you can’t stand for…
How about unknown creature?
Seriously, this is a super tough question!
I have been thinking and analyzing all the possible answers that I could think of after the trip, for example:
Do you fear to death? (人总会一死，或轻于鸿毛，或重于泰山If I enjoy every second in my life, if I treasure everyone in my life, if I do everything good without regret in my life, why should I fear to death?)
Do you fear if you find yourself can’t do running, climbing, cycling and swimming anymore? (If my legs are broken, I still have my pair of arms to take over my leg’s function, if I’m blind, I still can do sports with guide…)
Do you fear if you are infected by AIDS? (AIDS patients just like a normal human, sometimes they can perform better than a normal person, what do you fear about?)
Do you fear if you are poor? (Life still going on…)
Do you fear if you losing your beloved family member? (You already know they can’t be with you forever, love them as much as you can before you regret.)
Do you fear if you are a single mother? (Single mother is a great mother though…)
And so on…
What was in my mind simply 'no matter how bad the situation is, there is a way to overcome it'.
My dear, there is nothing to be feared.
Every threat is an opportunity.
There is a hidden force inside our soul,
Unleash the power when the time has come,
Stand up and fight back.
So my friend, what do you fear the most?
