BLOGTOBER #24: My Fears and Phobias

As Halloween is in ONE WEEK, this post is dedicated of all the things that I am scared of.

I am afraid of quite a few things and I do have a few more deeper fears for example, losing a family member or loved one. But I’m not going to talk about these because I don’t want it to be as dark as that. I just thought in this post I could share my common fears that you guys could possibly relate to.

To be honest, there area few to chat about, mainly because I’m a scaredy cat and don’t like a lot of things!

1. Being in Deep and Open Water

I love being in water and I find being in the sea very relaxing, as long as I can touch the bottom.

I think this fear stems from the fear of the unknown. I don’t like the thought of not knowing what’s below me or close to me that I can’t see. This could be anything from sharks, to jellyfish, to seaweed brushing against my leg. I just don’t like the feeling of not knowing.

The only exception to this is if the water is clear enough for me to see and if I’m with somebody, then I tend to be a lot more calm. But if not, then you probably won’t see me getting in.

2. Heights

This is a weird one for me. I really like being high and appreciating stunning views. I just don’t like being high and near an edge or being high and hung from something.

If we ever went walking up a mountain or hill, when we get to the top I would be fine as long as I wasn’t near an edge.

It’s the same kind of thing as to when my Boyfriend and  I went to Barcelona last year and we went on the cable cars. The whole time I had to look out at the views because if I looked down it would not be good. Another thing is that when the cable cars would move about and swing slightly I would become very tense and nervous too.

Luckily, my boyfriend knew all of this and kept me as calm as possible the whole way and back.

3. Driving

I know this sounds a bit strange and before you ask, yes I do have a full driving licence. But I think driving makes me very anxious down to the fact that I have been in 2 rather serious car accidents, and the thought of this happening again really scares me.

When I know I have to drive somewhere I make sure I know the exact route and how to get there other wise I’ll panic and stress out behind the wheel, which I don’t think would ever be a good idea.

I’m fine driving around my town because I’m used to it and know the way to a lot of the places I’d need to get to, but anything other than that I become quite scared. I know it’s not good to be a nervous driver but once I get going I talk to myself and put on some quiet music to calm down. This helps me a lot and makes sure that when I am driving, my nervousness doesn’t affect the cars around me.

4. The Dark.

I’m not sure how this one developed, I’m pretty convinced that I was born with it. It’s always been there as I remember falling asleep with the light on when I was a kid.

I just feel as though I’ve never been comfortable in the dark. Like, ever.

I don’t like it and I never will.


Let me know in the comment section below what you’re scared of!

Thank you so much for reading,

Love you all x

  1. I’m the same with the dark! I’m not sure what it is, I don’t think I’m scared of it but I’ve never liked falling asleep in the pitch black – I do it now because of my partner next to me, I guess he helps me fear it less for some reason. But when I’m walking by myself in the dark I always turn around to look behind me a lot.
