is it ok to be scared of the dark?

Answer #1

There’s nothing wrong with fearing anything. We ALL have fears no matter what age, sex or nationality you are. It’s life. Don’t worry about it. I admit, I still don’t particularly like a dark room when I go to bed.

Maybe keep a light on outside and have the door open a jar so light can pass in. Every night close the door a little closer until there’s no light at all. Fears are best turned around step by step.

Answer #2

It’s ‘OK’ to be scared of anything - no one should judge you. We all have different fears, even if we don’t always let other people know it.

Today many people would say that being afraid of the dark is irrational - but way back when, when our Neanderthal ancestors (whom we resemble VERY closely) were wandering around, the dark was a dangerous place.

Of course it can be impractical to be scared of the dark, and you can try to work on that - go out after dark with a really good friend, just sit down somewhere quiet, and let the stillness sink in. But don’t feel ashamed of your fear!
