Cockroaches? They are disgusting, but I am not afraid of them at all.
My real fear is to lose my loved ones in consequence of a desease or urban violence.

Ailime,

Only one minor suggested improvement here, change in to as a resulting in, "... as a consequence ..."

Before long you will be correcting me.

This is an interesting interrogative sentence, especially since I am not afraid of almost anything physical, or even death, although I do have a large degree of respect for many things and am not inclined to do anything that is very foolhardy.

Having spent most of my life as a solidier, who tried to do his duty as professed by General of the Army, Douglas MacArthur, in his farewell speach to the Corps of Cadets of the U.S. Military Academy. In that speach his erudite and famous plea to the Officer Corps of the Army was to always strive follow the meanings of the sacred words, "Duty, Honor, and Country". Therefore what I, like most professional soldiers, fear most is dishonour, and would actually prefer "Death Before Dishonour."

And that is the full monty of what I fear.

I forgot, I am also afraid of my wife when she is angry at me. ;)

Hey,

I have a had fear it's in my mind since two or three years ago... it isn't about ghosts or spirits.
I'm afraid of losing good chances in my professional life because of a knowledge that I didn't give enough importance.
I guess it's a normal feeling to a young... At least, I'm studying and becoming better in other to in the future maybe don't have headaches.
I´m afraid of dying and I´m afraid of lost my family.

Rafael,

Please read my rewrite of your post and see if you can ascertain why I made the changes, them please let me know if you need help on the reasons for any of the changes.

For the last two or three years I have had a fear of loosing professional opportunities due to a failure on my part to devote enough time and energy towards a portion of my studies, thereby not being properly prepared. I guess this fear is normal for a young person to have, however I am studying very hard in order to better prepare myself for the future, and maybe I will avoid this headache.

Again please let me know what you think, because your feedback is important to me.

Thank you,
