    afraid to x afraid of

    I want to go out, but it's too dangerous. So, I'm afraid to go out. I don't want to lose my job. So, I'm afraid of losing my job. Are the sentences right? Are they ever interchangeble? Thanks a lot

    In English do not start a sentence with "So". It is not used in this way.

    Yes, they can be interchangeable.
