How do you get over your fear(s)? -
Share either something you were once scared of and how you got over it, or how you're working towards getting over your fear(s).

My irrational fear of zom zoms ...
I have an irrational fear of zombies. So to get over that I have been overloading my system by watching zombie movies, and trying to think logically. ... Also by constantly thinking what I could use as a weapon in case a zombie did pop up in front of me ... I'm making progress ... I think.

My fear of the dark ....
It's not so much that I'm scared of the dark. It's more I think I see things (that move) in the dark. Very creepy. Bad eyes, bad you shouldn't play pranks on me. Oh yes, back on topic. I have been trying to stay calm and get use to being in rooms with a small amount of light. For example at 2 in the morning I'll sit in the living room reading manga or something on my laptop with just the light from my laptop. (Which makes a very dark living room). Yes terrible for my eyes, but it's making me get use to being in the dark ... to an extent. This is still a working progress.

My fear that something under my bed is going to grab my ankles ...
For the longest time I kept thinking someone or something would grab my ankles and drag me under the bed whenever I got up, when my room was dark. This had me running to the light switch. How I got over this silly fear ... ummm I don't think about it. I actually say in my head "there's no one there" and walk over to the light switch. ... Most progress I've done with my fears. biggrin

I know I have more irrational fears that I have gotten over, or working on, but for another time.

-Sidenote: For those that may have noticed I haven't been making many posts or threads ... it's not that I got more busy. I just slipped more into stalker mode errrr I mean a quiet mode. smile wink grin
But most would probably say didn't notice, and still don't care. Ahhh I feel the love.

Yes yes, I know I make longwinded comments, but that's just me >.<
I should proof read my comments more, but I won't...
So keep in mind I'm filled with typos

A man who fears nothing is a foolish man, a man who face his fears is a courageous man.

Well, I'm a foolish man, I had gotten hurt badly because of my lack of fear of the consensuses.

Also, I practice Parkour (for escaping) and have both a hatchet and a big machete next to my bed in case of a Zombie apocalypse.

Oh shitt, you serious man, wouldn't wanna mess with you in your sleep..

Whenever I'll get frightened, I'll just mutter some curses and be done with it..
But there are Times that I just get scared, like when at night and I'm walking to my room and I already turned off all the lights in hallway, I always get the feeling that there is something watching me behind my back, I try my best to ignore it and just speed walk..

I've learned to respect the things I fear, rather than fear them.

My grandmother told me "God rules heaven. the devil rules hell, and she runs her house." So if any ghost, zombies, and etc are not gonna pay rent they must listen to her. My grandma is a little crazy and easily angered so...yeah...
I usually either talk about it or ignore my fears. Sometimes I forget my fears when i'm emotional. Sometimes reality cancels out your fears especially if they're mild and you're preoccupied. I never thought of flooding myself, because where am i going to get a bunch of insects? I also have a fear of the dark, but I'm okay if I keep myself occupied. It really depends on how i feel

Face them or be reasonable. Paranormal stuff can be reasoned with. Fears born of your mind might need some deeds. The fear of shame for example can only be overcome by doing whatever you're ashamed to do. Some fears are biological and can't really be beaten, like the fear of losing your children or any other fear that exists in all animals for self-preservation. I haven't got much things to be afraid of at the moment, as most stuff I've been afraid of has already become reality or I've grown out of and some things I still don't know of.
