Not A Typical Teenager: Fears

Fears

Everyone is afraid of something or other. Getting over it shouldn't be that difficult should it?
It doesn't matter what the fear is is. Spiders. Dogs. The dark. Whatever. It really doesn't matter. I know this because I have spoken to a lot of my friends recently about being scared. I didn't think I had a real fear. Everyone had told me about their fears but I had just assumed that I had none. I was always telling my friends to stand up to them and get over it. I didn't understand what the issue was.

That was until I was offered to go on a trip which was 8 nights and an amazing oppurtunity to go on a boat to France. This sounded amazing, and I accepted. However, later that day I realized that I would be away from home for 8 nights. 8 NIGHTS!!!! I couldn't do that. I couldn't. That was when I realized that I do have a fear. I can't sleep away from home.

I then said that I couldn't go on this trip as I'm not ready to get over my fear.

Everyone is afraid of something or other. Getting over it shouldn't be that difficult should it?

It really is, and no-one can force you to get over it. You have to be ready. Be proud of your fear.

Stay un-typical
