My biggest phobia is tall buildings..I often imagine them falling down and sometimes they appear to be falling. Sometimes I’ll walk past one and think that I will get hit by a broken piece of roof from one of them. It’s silly I know but since I was a child I had this problem.
However, over time this fear has lessened to a degree.
I’ve been to San Francisco five times this year and each time I experienced new tall buildings. I’m from Sacramento, there’s not much here in terms of buildings like this one. On these trips, I’ve been able to slowly curb my fears and now I am much better. I believe it’s due to age and me working on my mental game. However, when I walked past this tall and highly decorative building I can’t think a piece of concrete was going to fall off and land on me. I fought my fears and kept on moving.
Instead of sinking in fear to my phobia, I challenged it head on by riding roller coasters, taking trips to larger cities, and simply breathing and not panicking.
Just alittle tidbit that I wanted to share.
