This is what fear looks like. Fear rooted in pride (“I hope no one finds out”) grows this way.
Don’t ask me how I know. Or why I am an expert, able to spot it a mile away.
1 John 4.18 amp “There is no fear in love [dread does not exist]. But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgment] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love].”
