fear Ok, so, I am completely, irrationally scared ****less of the dark. It doesn't make any sense to me, I know its stupid, that nothing is going to come out and get me in the dark, but the fear still hits me when there is no light. I've been dealing with it my whole life, and it really bothers me because to everyone I know I'm like that guy they look out to to not be afraid, to be steady and support people, and I'm completely out of my mind scared of something as simple and common as the dark. Lately its been getting worse, and I don't know what to do, I used to be able to convince myself to just walk like normal while berating myself about how there is nothing there and I'm being stupid. But now the fear seems to grip me so strongly that if there is noone else present I just have to get to the nearest source of light as quickly as possible. Anyone have any ideas for breaking this fear?
