I was afraid of so much when I was a kid. I think the most prominent fear was being afraid of someone looking in the window at me. I have no idea why it scared me so but it was a real fear. I had to make sure there were no gaps in the curtains in my room.
Yes, I got over it and now we have some windows that have no curtains at all and I never think about someone outside looking, or rather it doesn't scare me - let me at 'em!!
