Still scared of the dark at 19, is that an issue?
It's only when I'm alone, when someone sleeps with me I can handle pitch black. I have a feeling it's a psychological problem I developed from fears of loneliness and trust issues with family. Is that a possible reason. I also have insomnia, which doesn't help, my mind races a lot.
I don't really think it's an issue. I tend to believe a lot of people won't admit they're afraid of the dark, but they are. It's natural instinct.
If you haven't already, you should find a close friend and talk about this with him or her. I find that talking about things helps you overcome them.
And, to close out my answer: Being afraid of the dark is much more rational than a lot of phobias people have.
I have the same problem. I'm afraid of being alone sleep at night. I have insomnia, too. I have no idea how to solve these problems. They seems to be unalterable.
Hi, from your little words i can realize that, you don't scare of the dark itself, you scare of the Unknown.
and yes, this can happen as a result of trust issues,
and if i right , you find yourself getting worry of many thing you don't have to worry about it...right?
that's why insomnia appears.
don't worry it's not a big problem
the real problem is in the trust not in the dark, if i have more information about that issue may i'll be more helpful..However, iam agree with (winterfate) to talk to someone you trust but try to chose someone doesn't scare of dark too .
if it effects your day to day life then it's an issue. the fear of darkness can be caused from many things and i think this is something you will have to figure out by yourself. as you stated , your not afraid when your with someone so perhaps loneliness is part of the problem. try to anylize your problem and i honestly believe you can get over it. good luck.
No ... its perfectly natural to be afraid of the Darkness ... Had it not been a Fear, we would have never learned.
