1. The phobia of losing someone you love.
Why I love this word:
I guess I have had to learn this the hard way. Losing someone you love is probably the most heartbreaking experiences I have tried to come to terms with. You never really heal. And that really sucks. My conclusion: life is too precious to be lived on your own with all of your emotions kept to yourself. If you love someone, tell them. If they don't say it back...well I haven't thought that far yet. I guess if they don't say it back, give them time until they realize they are letting someone who loves them unconditionally go. Humans are a funny bunch, they always have to be reminded of what is good for them. And that, I think, is the best you can do.
