Braving Fear

It is natural for people to be afraid of something. Some people could have the silliest fear like the fear of taking a shower or for some, something more serious like fear of terrorism or death. Before going in depth of phobias, let me share something with everyone, just for laughs.

Technically, with creatures like cockroaches and house lizards, that's basically how things are. But what about something like being claustrophobia (fear of small spaces) or acrophobia (fear of heights)?

Did you know that phobias like claustrophobia can be treated? And did you know that phobias are always caused by something? For example, some people are aquaphobic (fear of water) because they might have gone through something traumatising in the past while swimming. The most important thing about phobias is that, one should never force a person to do something if they fear something because it could physically, mentally and emotionally hurt the person which could lead to depression. It also comes down to respecting the person’s fears.

Remember friends, nobody can force you to do something if you do not want to or have a fear for it. Do not be ashamed to tell people of your fears if it mentally or emotionally disturbs you. Talk it out to someone you trust, and try your best to overcome your fears.
