Why are some people so scared of the dark? Why am I scared of the dark?
It's not like I don't know what's in the dark. I know exactly what's there. But when you're in the dark, you can't see anything. And it's human nature(or just my nature), I guess, to be scared of what you can't see. Even though I know exactly how my room is, when it's dark, it seems all the more creepy.
When I'm in a dark room, whether I know the place or not, I feel a chill run up my spine. It's like I start imagining the weirdest scenarios, and the dark turns from nothing to everything. It's all in my mind, but I hate going to a dark room. I'm not even scared OF the dark. I'm scared of what might be in the dark.
Or maybe it's just because I hate not being able to see anything. I rely on my sight more than anything, and being in the dark is like being blind.
But imagine being in the dark, but with people around you. You can hear them. You can hear the breathing, the footsteps, the familiar feeling you get when people are around you. And that just makes everything better. There's nothing to worry about because when you are with people, all those fears and imaginations of what's in the dark disappears.
So, this is what I think. When you're in the dark, the fear attacks you. (that is, if you're scared of the dark). It's because nothing is there to calm you down. But when there's life around you, whether it's a human or an animal, it comforts you. The dark is only a two dimensional thing when you're with people. It doesn't hurt you because there's nothing to be worried about. You don't have to let the fear envelop you, because, after all, darkness is nothing but the absence of light.
Or maybe this whole post didn't make any sense at all and I'm the only one who feels this way.
