Try NLP courses in your city. Or read some Dale Carnegie's books (Public Speaking and Influencing Men in Business, Public Speaking for Success, etc.)

I am afraid of water. I feel dizzy when I am in front of the sea or on the bridge. In my hometown, there are many "monkey" bridges. I cannot be over these bridges.

it's very strange. I think few person are afraid of it. What happened on you?


Thanks. It is okay, there is nothing happened. I am still alive.

There are some people afraid of something oddly. It is normal.

So true to me. I'm afraid of so many things.
Firstly I can't stand staying alone because I'm afraid of ghost.
Secondly I'm afraid that someone especially my family members or my friends angry with me or leave me no reason.
Thirdly I'm frightened of darkness, cats, and snakes.

In what concerns me, I am phobic about more than one thing, first thing that frighten me is high places, I feel dizzy and like I am going to fall down, second thing I am afraid of is darkness, my last phobia is about dead people, I know that is crazy because they cannot do anything to anyone, however I get scared by thinking of them :s :s

I don't really know if my changing fears can be classified among "phobias". I can discover my real scares after every situations in my life. So, my current fear is about taking decision. And I wonder why it gives me so much anxiety.

Phobias do exist but once you learn to handle them, they no longer scare you. When I am familiar with something or somebody, I don't fear from it. For example, in India, I have seen the street magicians playing with snakes. Public speaking scares me but once I prepare to speak in public, I feel comfortable. It is necessary to know what you fear from and then how the fear can be handled. :-D

In my point of view every person is afraid of something, but he or she isn't tell us about it. Why? Because they want to be seen as brave. People scared about many things, but I don't think it is at once phobia in every human.
