Are you afraid of heights?


Are you afraid of heights?
Yesterday I was traveling to Wisconsin so that I can zip line there. News flash: I am terrified of heights. No really, like the throwing up and fainting kind. So I went zip lining so that I can get rid of my fear, but yet after doing so, I am still afraid of heights, maybe its the thought of pain if I fall (like I would be smashed tomatoes). Next off, I am sky diving with my best friend and I don't want to run from it but at the same time I do.
For those who are not afraid of heights, how do you do it? Any tips are welcome :)

  • I used to be, remember having this fear when I was a kid, overcame this later on after rappelling and it was gone completely. It might be present but it would go away quickly.

  • Not really, I'd really want to try bungee jump sometime. I saw people doing that at a music festival this Summer, and it looked amazing. I think you should keep doing things that are a bit out of your comfort zone, as long as you're not extremely uncomfortable with it of course :) If you challenge yourself and your fears, you will probably get over them at some point.

    • Throwing shade at an innocent 16 year old, *gasp* lol 😜

      I went zip lining in Tennessee around 3 years ago though, I'm ready for the adventure woot woot

    • @Littlett25 *looks around* Are you talking to me? Lol
      I would never do that lol. But you sure sound like good company to travel with :)

  • No, I'm not. If you're scared, why do it? If I fall off, then I'm going to die instantaneously once I hit the ground 93.827% of the time. So if that's the case, what's the point in being scared? It won't hurt long enough for me to feel it. YODO!

    • Did you read the description box? I do it to get rid off the fear of heights.

      But your mentally is the same. I rather die than survive and feel pain lol

    • I skipped over the "not really" part and read the "like throwing up and fainting" part 😅

  • yes i am, very afraid of heights, sometimes my head starts spinning when im standing at a height and see down

    • So is that a yes not really or a no not really?

    • Thats a no unless its really extreme, like a several story drop with no guard rails while really close to the edge

  • I am good with heights - Just keep going for it, don't let it stop you - Sky diving is epic - Freefalling before chute opens is amazing

  • You cannot help it. That fear cannot be conquered. It is something natural.

    • Can you manage standing on a 6 feet tall stool in the middle of a room without holding on to anything?

    • Neither can I. As much as I try. So it is not the fear of dying. Its just the fear of falling.

  • HELL NO, sky diving , planes, wing suit's pure adrenaline

  • I'm pretty sure a fear of heights is more intelligence than anything haha, if I'm walking around on my roof or something or on scaffolding a lot I get used to it and it's not a huge deal. Certain things like that bridge, one missed step/trip on a platform you can very easily have any sort of minor stumble, goodluck have fun on the way down haha.

  • Yes.

    I know how it happened as a child and what caused it.

    - I get extremely dizzy and start panicking if I'm up high. (I'd say anything above about 6 feet from below my feet level).

    I CAN get through it, but the amount of energy it takes to overcome it, leaves me pretty exhausted.

  • I'm not afraid of heights as long as I'm securely strapped into something, like a zipline or a rollercoaster or something. If I'm like at somewhere really high and I'm looking over a ledge or something though that makes me so scared. But I just enjoy what's happening and know that I'm not going to fall because I'm securely strapped in so there's nothing to be scared about. :)

  • I'm only scared of heights if there's actually a possibility of me falling. If I'm safe behind a fence or if I have sturdy gear that'll keep me from falling (such as when zip lining) then I'm not scared. A bit nervous maybe, like my feet and hands will tingle a bit. But there's no point in feeling scared if I'm safe.
    Sky diving is different though since I actually have to rely on another person for my safety, and somehow that feels more unsafe than trusting a fence or some gear.

    • So you went sky diving before? Does that feel worse than a roller coaster?

    • No, this is just how I feel about it. I think roller coasters are a piece of cake, so of course sky diving will be worse since you're essentially falling.

    • Oh god. Now I'm more scared lol

  • I am afraid of heights. I have to close my eyes and tightly hold on when on a roller coaster

  • I'm not afraid of heights but there are things that are just plain stupid. Making out on a train track right next to the ledge is an example.

  • I'm so afraid of heights but I also love facing my fear with it. I love the adrenaline rush of it all. I think my actual fear is that I could fall from that height and get hurt, so that's what actually makes me scared. I'd love to go skydiving and bungee jumping, and many other things that deal with heights.

  • Nope, not really. However, zip lining would still be freaky, haha.

  • some people will always be afraid of heights, spiders and many other things. I've tried everything to overcome my fear (phobia) of heights and nothing works. my legs are still shaking whenever I look downstairs, through the window and so on. I just have the feeling that I will fall down and probably break all my bones or eventually die.
