What am I fear about ?
Mine fear is darkness.Darkness always gives me goosebumps with lot of hallucinations. I am never bold enough to sleep in dark room, or to move around during late hours within my house only . Everyone makes a lot fun of me . They pulled my leg by passing remarks like ” डरपोक ” ” looser ” blah blah . These gestures always pulled back my confidence to zero level.
“The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
This wisdom quotes shows they had it all, but manged to overcome it.
How I overcome my fear ?
This problem become headache for my parents .My mom always tried to help me either by being very sweet or by being sour . But I never overcome from this . One day my father’s friend & her wife came for dinner . They both are psychologist and as usual my parents share this problem of mine with them . They asked me to come over their home .
How I undergo counselling ?
A lot of questions comes to my mind about counselling – not very much confident about it . How can a counselling help me to fight my fear? To be very true it’s not very common at that time , this incidence happens to be in late 90’s . At that time , psychological counselling looked up like serious mental illness. But lucky to have liberal parents 🙂 I went to catch them up with my dad . Doctor uncle asked me to sit on chair and let me concentrate at a point . And then asked me to go in deep sleep .
What are the outcome of counselling?
Trust me my first session is so relaxing, feels very light after attending it . It brings confidence in me . After that I attended 2 more sessions and saw drastic improvement in my fear . I am not saying that I am totally get rid of my fear . But the intensity of my fear is reduced a lot about < 5% only . Now I can sleep alone in my room without light . Can roam around my home at night . Seen a lot of positive growth in my personality .
This one is my brave story about how I overcome my fear 🙂 & become a champion .
