Sorry to break it to you, but you don’t get any braver with age.
I mean, sure, you’ve plucked up the courage to push your boundaries a bit. Maybe that means getting over your fear of talking to boys or deciding that you need to explore the world more outside of watching episodes of Lonely Planet on Friday nights.
But there are just some childhood fears that just stick to you. For example, anyone can easily return to their six-year-old self after getting scared shitless because of a scary movie. They have to run from light switch to light switch in order to create a path of light to safely get get them to their destination of choice, be it your bedroom or washroom. Because the monsters can’t get you if you’re in the light, right?
Well, here are just some of the things that haunt us to this very day. From the typical fears to the very weird, here are some things that make us shiver with fright.
