It's the only explaination.
I don't know what it is with my head, maybe it's just filled with too much corruption, but in almost any situation, I automatically think of the worst thing that could ever possibly happen, even with something simple and non-dangerous like walking on a treadmill or down the street. I don't think I've ever told anyone this, but I think I have a really bad case of paranoia; I live most of my life in mild fear.
When I cook I'm afraid the flame will jump and I'll be burned to death. If I so much as stand on a footstool I'm terrified I'll fall off and break something. When I'm doing dishes I'm afraid there will be a knife at the bottom of the sink and I'll cut myself. When I shower I'm afraid I'll slip and fall. And there's so much more it's SO not even funny... At school, I'm afraid someone's going to go crazy and start shooting people; which is probably the reason I'm typically REALLY nice to people.
But I think my all time, absolute biggest fear of anything is driving. I almost cry every time I even drive down an empty street. I'm just barely starting to learn and stuff, so I might overcome it, but in any case, once I have my licence I'll likely avoid driving at all costs.
