for as long as i can remember, i’ve had an intense fear of bees, to the point where it still hinders my every day life. my parents said when i was little there was a wasp nest in my room and i got stung a ton of times, maybe it derived from that. but i would literally avoid going outside as a kid and i still do. i’m not even allergic or anything and i know it wouldn’t be the end of the world if i got stung, but y’all know how it is, right? once you’re in that fight or flight mode, it’s impossible for reasoning to be present. i just feel so stupid for being afraid of bugs and i know my family thinks it’s dumb too but i genuinely feel like i can’t help it.

i just wanna know if y’all can relate, if you have any intense fears you’re kinda shamed for? what helps you?

    Honestly I’m in the same boat I am deathly afraid of snakes I grew up in a tropical area so when I was younger I fell in a pit that was filled up with snakes I don’t remember if they were big or small but as a small child that was terrifying to me and I have not gotten over it since I would love to hear other peoples advice on getting over a fear

    I’m afraid of bugs too haha. A big thing that helped me overcome my fear of bees was the fact that 1. they’re very smart and 2. stinging ANYTHING causes them to die, so they won’t sting unless they feel like they absolutely need to
