Phobias are very real for many people, be it a phobia of heights, planes or even something as simple as the colour yellow. Phobias can paralyse people in their tracks.
When I stop and think about what I am scared of, I really have to think hard. I have no single fear. I have moments of discomforts, but I can’t say I actually fear something to a point of a phobia.
We need to assess our daily lives and although there is a medical excuse for just about everything today, being paranoid on a constant basis must not be good.
So, for those of you who have a fear, I am glad I don’t live in that world. But for the rest of us a little fear now and then, I would think, is healthy because it keeps us on our toes.
