Do you have any phobia?

14Views

I never knew I would overcome certain fears in this life(I’m telling you) How some of them fell off eh I can’t tell but the ones I remember, I will share with you.

Fear is a torment. Fear kills faster than the things we are even afraid oAs a child I was noctiphobic( afraid of nights) I couldn’t move from a particular place to another alone at nights without shivering in fear. I had the mindset that something would eat me( childish reasoning) The day this thing stopped I can’t recall. I knew I overgrew it. This is one of the proofs that phobia can drop with time. One can overgrow it. Yes

The second observation: I consciously faced the fears face to face. I was acrophobic too. I consciously began climbing heights. The first attempt wasn’t easy at all. I almost felt like I’d already fallen with broken ankle buh nay i didnt fall. I was encouraged to do more . Yea! with time I discovered it got better and that’s how the fear started dropping.( Acrophobia is the fear of heights)

Would you try facing yours?

I feel we can overcome phobia by trying out these things that instill agitation and anxiety.. Are you afraid of heights? Try climbing heights, afraid of anything, try changing your mindset tell yourself it won’t destroy you and mean it…
