The Fear Hierarchy

Jan Pettit’s list of fears, ranked from childhood through parenthood. I’m currently somewhere between 13 and 17:

13. Fear of selling out
Deserting dreams.
Embracing capitalism.

14. Fear of the dark (continued)
Parking lots at night.
Deserted streets at night.
Apartments at night.
Houses at night.
Bedrooms at night.

15. Fear of rejection (continued)
By lovers.
By bosses.
By friends.

16. Fear of being unloved
