The biggest insecurity and fear in his life was that according to him, his achievements didn’t matter. That is simply because his family before him had achieved them all. His grades didn’t match Percy and Bill, and his Quidditch skills weren’t as good as Charlies’. Hence, he doubted himself constantly and failed to believe that he was as good as everybody else.

2. Being Harry’s Sidekick

Ron was always worried that he is Harry’s sidekick and never the star of the show. However, that wasn’t true. Throughout the franchise, Ron has had his moments where he displayed his intelligence. Of course, he wanted to get credit for his achievements. For example, beating McGonagall’s chess game, fighting off Death Eaters at the Ministry, and so much more. But he was always worried that his peak is to be Harry’s sidekick.

3. Feared His Mother Didn’t Love Him

To make it clear, Ron never hated Ginny or discriminated against her. But Ron always thought that his mother didn’t love him because she always wanted a daughter. However, that wasn’t the case as Molly did love his son. But at times she overlooked him due to her overachieving sons or because of Ginny being the youngest child.

4. He Believed He Didn’t Deserve Hermoine

Ron had straight-up believed that he didn’t deserve Hermoine. As mentioned above, he had doubts about him and considering that Hermoine is a gifted witch, Ron believed that he would always fall short. However, Hermoine never thought like that and even made a move by inviting Ron to the Slughorn party which Ron obviously didn’t understand.

5. Ron Believed Nobody Took His Opinions Seriously

To Ron, he always thought that people never took his opinions seriously. However, he was the one who suggested using flames to defeat the Devil’s snare, and also figured out that Lockhart was a fraud. But these moments were played down due to Ron himself. This is one of the reasons why he blew up at Harry in Deathly Hallows.

6. He Was Convinced He Was A Terrible Wizard

Right since the beginning he was convinced that he was a terrible wizard and even told Harry right off the bat that he is afraid of failing at school. But the truth is that he was never a bad wizard but was only kept in the fog by his own fears.

7. He Feared That Harry & Hermoine Were Having An Affair

One of the worst fears that Ron had was that he was convinced that Harry and Hermoine are having an affair. As mentioned above, he had a fear of always living in Harry’s shadow, so his fears were understandable that Hermoine would fall for the famous and talented Harry Potter. But that wasn’t the case.
