Unlike the phobia thread, what I'm talking about here are more the things you feared as a child but outgrew. Or perhaps they still make you nervous but you know it's silly. Like, for example, the Boogeyman. So, what silly fears did you have or still have? ***** As a kid, I didn't like going to stores like Sears, mainly because of the mannequins. I'd seen a movie where they came to life at night, I think. If I recall correctly, it was a Christmas movie. Nevertheless, I used to always be so wary, always looking behind as I passed them, scared that maybe one of them turned their head toward me. The same thing was with dolls and paintings, the portrait kinds that is. Even up 'til now, I find myself queasy around them, wondering how others could even like them Another fear I had was with mirrors. I was always worried that my reflection would end up doing something different than I am. Or that there would be someone else there in the reflection. >.> Like the above mentioned, mirrors still tend to worry me a little ^_^'. It's very silly but there it is.
