You are not born with a phobia – it is a learned response. A response that you have simply programmed into your mind, when confronted by the phobic stimulus and sometimes, even the anticipation or thought of the situation is enough to provoke the response, the person then begins to experience the classic symptoms of panic attacks.
Almost all children live with this kind of fear. Recent studies shows that about 90% children have certain kind of fears, and fear of darkness is the most common fear encountered by children from a wide range of ages. When children are unable to overcome their fear of darkness until adult, the fear can become phobia that may be a hindrance in people’s lives that can cause stress and reduce people’s productivity.
Being afraid of the dark is nothing to be ashamed of. There are plenty of people who feel the same way you do when the lights go out. Are you going to let your fear of the dark control you, or are you going to take a stand and control your fear of the dark? Darkness is not something you can spend your life avoiding. The sun sets each and every day of the year – there’s just no way around it. If you want a life that doesn’t involve constant fear of dimly-lit hallways, and unlit rooms, you need to vanquish your fear of the dark once and for all.
