I have sometimes felt scared in the dark, if I am alone in the house.
Knowing that nothing bad has ever happened to me or anyone else in that house does not help. Small noises become amplified and meaningful. Then little by little I am not sure if I am hearing a noise or maybe just thinking I might have heard something. Seen something from the corner of my eye...But you know what? If that happens to me nowadays, I go to sleep anyway.
The easiest thing to do in life is to be too afraid to do anything and run from things that take a push to go through. For ages I lived thinking that I *have to* do certain things, because it is the right thing to do and if I am not on that path, bad things will happen to me. These were specific bad things, sure, I could name quite a few. In fact, the list was so extensive it felt like a wall I could not go through, even if I sometimes thought maybe there is something on the other side and maybe, just maybe, I could try something else.
The unfortunate fact is that all those monsters and ghosts were in my head. I let them rule me, without ever having any real evidence anything bad would really happen. In fact, around me people were changing their lives and the bad things did not happen to them! But surely they would, if I were to try... There are real things in life that are scary and worth staying away from. There are stupid things you can do. But don't rely on the monsters and ghosts to decide for you, you can find out what is possible and what is probably a bad idea. You actually know how to take sensible steps towards a better life or a dream. Give it a go and find new monsters to prove wrong!
