How to avoid of being paralised by your phobia?

Have you ever had a phobia? How you dealt with it? What kind of the phobia it was?

I think that phobia is something that is not easy to talk about. It's really very shame to say somebody that you are afraid of something. And may be it makes it even worst. 

Some phobias are very dangerous, cause you may live in your fears day and night. If it happens to be for a long period of time it really destroys your brain and in that case you would need the help of a psychologist or even a psychiatrist. I think it's not a big shame or something like this to ask these specialists to help you nowadays. Life sometimes is very difficult and may put you somehow in the deadlock situations

Some people are very sensitive and spleeny. They are not so strong to avoid many bad situations or information. They are not able sometimes to get rid of this quikly, they pay so much attention and energy for the things which others could forget easily. But everything has it's two sides. For example these people can feel the beauty of simple things that others may even not pay attention to. I think such people could be good writers, painters or something like this. 

But it's better not to be so sensitive and spleeny, especially nowadays. It's very expencive to have such fears.

Yes...It's so great that the points you have discussed here about "Phobia" as it is common to all. Great Job.

Thank you, Expector Smith! I also admire those strong people. Sometimes our phobia exists because we need to do some actions we afraid to do. If we do them the problem usually desappears.

Yes, unfortunately, so many poeple may be suffering from phobia, which can be so harmful.

And, nowadays people tend to lose their temper - I always admire those who are good-tempered or can keep their temper.

Hi, Achan! So happy to see you again! Yes, I agree with you. Sharing with friends is relivable when you have a phobia.

We can probably go and ask for help to our friends when we have phobia or something...

Great post :)

Thank you, Noaslpls for your comment. Right, it should be: "expensive".  I have found the word "spleeny" in google's translator site. This word means a person who is exaggerating the problems in their mind, they usually think in a bad mood and that is why their anxiety is also growing high.

I also fear the height. I guess, it's mostly because I live on the ground floor:)))

Well, I am a little bit afraid of height, though I won't call it phobia because I've been to many tall buildings and places. It's just that to take the first step to scale that height, it's terrifying.

Just an observation, I am sure it's just a typo, in your sentence "It's very expencive", the correct word is 'expensive'.

What is spleeny? If you are referring as a bad tempered person, I never heard that term being used before. Maybe it should be 'spiteful'?
