? Homophobia - Fear of Homosexauls

The Contenders

11 Eleutherophobia - Fear of Freedom

I have this usually when at school. It's caused by extreme lack of trust of yourself. This can be caused by doing things wrong a lot, overthinking about the things you did wrong in the past a lot, or an extreme case of general bullying. People with this fear usually have a fear of being imperfect that causes them to overthink the wrong things they do. This can also be caused by extreme indecisiveness. I don't trust myself to do anything right, as long as it's offline. I overthink everything I do too. And I am very indecisive. So, this isn't really as weird as it seems above the water. I way prefer having extremely specific tasks to having really open ones. It takes a lot of time to get the confidence to do an open task and when I do it I have more hate towards myself after because I am sure I did it incorrectly. This fear is a b#tch at school. - LemonComputer
