Is it because of a bad experience? Was there something that triggered it?
I used to be scared of dogs because a dog bit me when I was 2 years old. I was playing with it, and I think I pulled its tail and it bit me.
I’m scared of death, most likely because my dad died when I was 15… I don’t really remember being scared of it until after that happened.
I’m scared of rejection and losing my loved ones, maybe because I’ve experience rejection by people I’ve cared about.
