Blogtober, Day 10: My Top 3 Fears

  1. Flying: Kind of a generic one really, but I really really dread flying. Not necessarily because of heights, in fact I find looking out the window and admiring the views calming. Instead, I have the fear that the plane is going to crash at any given moment, and although plane crashes are very uncommon, every minute of a plane feels like it’s going to be my last. Dramatic I know. I just have to keep telling myself that it’s the safest form of travel and to fantasise about the destination. Usually, I find travelling one of the most exciting parts of a holiday or weekend away, but not when it comes to flying whatsoever!
    It probably doesn’t help that I’d never experienced flying until I was 18 years old and my first flight was to Paris, so a very short flight and therefore a smaller, more turbulent plane.
    To this date I’ve only flown 3 times and have never had to endure longer than 4 hours on a plane. However, as the years go on and I (hopefully) travel further and wider, I’ll stop worrying about this very unlikely idea. It hasn’t stopped me doing anything as of yet though.
  2. Spiders: Again, another generic one. I think this fear was learnt through classical conditioning when I was a child. I know the spider is probably more scared of me, than I am the spider – but I can’t see anything appealing about the way they look or move, plus just seeing one makes me feel sick and itchy. Pretty sure that’s common though.
  3. Losing people close to me: Family and friends are so important to me, and I am so lucky to have some amazing people in my life. I dread the day I lose anyone close to me, as anyone would.Tomorrows challenge: If I was an animal, what would I be?
