My greatest childhood fear
Why do people have fears? Why do we let fears control our lives? I never thought I would ever get over my own fears. These fears made my childhood very difficult and hard to deal with. However for me as a young child, I was afraid of dogs, falling, and the darkness.
Being afraid of dogs was one of my biggest fears. One day I was walking down the street from school and I felt like I had walked upon one of the biggest dogs I had ever seen. The dog stood behind a gate taller than I. It looked at me standing there nerves and shaking. As I look at his sharp teeth and him foaming at the mouth as if I was a full course meal. As he started to bark
I felt something warm run down my leg. Every time a dog would bark at me I get scared.
Another big fear of mine was a fear of leaves. There are a lot of things out there to be afraid of, and there seem to be phobia about falling of the of the roof or a bridge.
As I got older, my parents told me to look down whenever I was surrounded by leaves and jump up and down and crash them all. And it would be just like killing them. It took me a long time to get over my fear but it worked. I am also afraid of the dark. I could not sleep in my room without leaving the light on.
When I went to sleep in the dark, I started to imagine things like monsters and other things that would scare me. To me a monster was something that would eat you alive and not care. I was afraid that it would write my parents a note with my blood on the wall, and tell them that it took me. I hated being all alone in the dark; it made me afraid to sleep in my room. I would run and get in the bed with my parents because I felt safer there. When I walked by myself in the dark, I started to think that someone might try to kill me or kidnap me.
