Fear of being attacked

Sometimes I have a strong fear of being attacked while I’m trying to successfully finish something.

I feel like this is an emotional sign that I’ll make a long term goal in the future and I should be willing to sacrifice it if it means possibly ruining a life and making a fatal enemy.

Who are you afraid will attack you? I have anthropophobia so bad from all the abuse my mom gave me and the bullying I faced that I'm afraid people will attack me! Do you think people will attack you? I hope you can remain safe regardless of the attack you fear. :hug:

Someone on the sidelines who’s determined to stop me from succeeding and feels like they have a good reason behind stopping me.

I have a history of making big decisions that result in upsetting people badly. Sometimes to the point where they make threats against me. Some of those decisions have been disrespectful towards other people so maybe part of it is a guilty conscience.

I hope you are safe. It is scary especially when they are so much stronger than you. Can't you get a restraining order? :hug:

The only person that comes to mind when I have this feeling is my brother. But he’s doing well so he should be the last person I fear. It doesn’t makse sense.

And I know he won’t attack me.

Maybe my emotions are telling me I should communicate with my family more. *shrugs*

Try this, helps if it does! The fear of it is illogical. If somebody makes that dark decision that he/she is going to attack you, most probably it's gonna happen without warning, right? So it will come without time to accustom to the idea that there it comes, right? And it does not matter how nerve wreck you are going to stress because of it, it will happen if the person makes the decision. It is not up to you. If you are not part of "underground"-lifestyle, I can assure you, the chance is minimal!
