What was your greatest fear when you were a teenager?

My greatest fear as a teenager:  failure (to accomplish anything (of value) in my life).

By the time I became a teenager, I was sure that the way I was being reared was wrong. I was determined to have a family, and “do it right.” I was raised in a household where my father worked extremely hard to provide for the family, but we never had enough money to get by financially. We went without food at different times, and there was no extra money for anything. Money (or the lack of it) became an important part of my definition of success. I had no idea how I was going to accomplish my rendition of success for myself. I was full of energy, but had no idea what I needed to do to accomplish any of my dreams.
