21 May fears and phobias
As children growing up, we know no fear until we learn it. You have seen over the years anxious parents watching their child on a slide or climbing frame oblivious to any danger that the parents see. Some fears of course are important for us to learn, helping us to avoid what is dangerous, but so many other fears are irrational but fill us with the same dread. When a fear starts to disrupt your daily life, it’s possible you may be suffering from a phobia.
