  • I used to be afraid 'Of the dark' as a kid, where I would Snuggle way under the covers because I Had... Fear of the dark.
    However, as I got older, I got on my own own in my own Home, I overcame it.
    You may or Not 'Overcome fear of the dark,' and for now, leave a Night light on to Begin your Beguine, where perhaps Eventually you don't want the Light in your eyes as you sleep, you just may go Ahead and Turn it off while in your Bed.
    Good luck. xx

  • You mean dark places, dark rooms? right?

    Well, the only way to actual overcome your fear of the dark is to face the dark, venture inside the dark places. You can start with taking a torch at first, take the torch and go inside the dark place and when you get scared switch on the torch, do it a few times and then next time take the torch inside the dark place but don't switch it. You will find that slowly you will get brave to face the dark places.

      Im serious, just sit in the dark for 5 to 10 minutes while meditating. Embrace it

  • Take a lot of night walks, go moonlight hiking, turn the lights off in your room, use logic to figure out most bad things happen when the sun is out.

  • you can't escape dark, you can't escape from your darkest times. your darkest times will beat the shit out of you and will crush you, but its upto you that you rise up again or stay there.

  • Sometimes I am still afraid of it; especially if I hear thunders.

    And I don't know, I just practiced sleeping without the light on.
    But these days/nights my light is always on.

  • It's not the dark that bothers me it's what you can't see in the dark. As for over coming that fear I never have.

  • my mom locked me up in a pitch dark room with my dog when I was 9 while she and her boyfriend laughed at me for being so afraid of it
    I felt so bad I decided I wouldn't cry for her, so I started petting my dog and singing to calm down
    after that I always sang to myself when I was alone in the dark to keep me distracted from having scary thoughts lol
    I don't have to do it anymore 😊 hope it works for you too!
