Well.. this is a subect that have been running in my head like, for a couple of months to talk over here in my DA journal.
Actually, i know outside there, are a LOT of people who have phobias, like, for spiders, heights, cockroaches, darkness, ghosts, clowns etc, and it's really common to see or hear someone to tell "I really hate bugs, cockroaches and stuff like that
". Most of people who knows me, may know about my own "ridiculous" fear, and if i touch this topic right now, it's because i started living alone and i want to take some kind of therapy to try controlling this ugly bombshell that like, paralyzes?, my body, when i confront or met ANY butterfly.......yup.
Almost everyone who hears about my phobia uses to laugh a little or at least smiles, it makes me feel pretty embarrassed and sometimes idiot, because they ALL just comes to this question: ---> "A butterfly?, how can you fear those beautiful animal".
K' buddy, to most of people in the globe, a butterfly might look adorable and beautiful, but for me, they are the most disgusting creatures ever, they are nothing but winged worms. Those patterns of their wings just drives me crazy and when i'm near enough to one of them, I just like.... can't control myself, and my whole body stops reacting to the orders that my brain gives to it, it's really horrible, and i feel powerless. I can't... really CAN'T found any beauty on a butterfly, no matter how hard I try, i just can't find anything "pretty" in them. I can understand they may be cute....in some way, because the 80% of the people in the world finds them "heavenly", and I'm part of the 20% that don't, you know that fact "the majority is always right".
I tried once, really long time ago to take some therapy to "cure" this, but it didn't help at all... I just couldn't resist and faint hahaha (the both times *laughs*
So yeah.... Yesterday at night I had a dream about black butterflies near to me and i just couldn't sleep properly, even if this is a really windy and cold city, I woke up many times during the night sweating uncontrollably, and had to see some cartoons to calm myself and go to sleep peacefully.
SO, i come here today to ask you guys, if there's someone who also have this kind of fear?, not necessary to be against butterflies too, I just really want to know about everyone else's phobias, if you have one, of course. REMEMBER
.... fear or revulsion isn't equal to phobia, I can understan there's a LOT of people who feels really disgust for some animals, like insects or can scream if they stares at one, or dogs, or ducks.... but that doesn't mean you have a phobia.... phobia is when you can't control yourself when you see your particular reason for fear, and your body just can't react to what you order it to do, it can be run, scream, or even call for help. Do not confuse fear, disgust or a HIGH
disgust with the phobia, because they're WAY different from each other.
PLEASE i'd like to know how many people have really phobias, and against what? : )
Thank you for taking your time to read this
