Yes, I was afraid of the dark and now I am not! My imagination would run wild as a child and so I needed a night light, but I still covered my face under the covers with just a little spot to breathe lol. Now, I can sleep in complete darkness without any fears no matter what. Guess, once my head hits that pillow, I am gone.
There was another time when I was young and my mother was driving our car and my siblings and I were all going somewhere special that day, until a drunk driver crossed the line and hit us head on. Praise the Lord, we were in a tank of a car and we were just bruised up a bit, especially my sweet mother more so than the rest of us. So, for many years I was so afraid to even ride in a vehicle. I grew out of that, and now I am fearless. When I was younger, many years after the accident, I even wanted to be a racecar driver lol.
