Or you could call them phobias. (Please dont merge this with another :$)

Do you have any? Like something really really irrational...?

I dont get how we know its irrational yet we still continue to fear it :-[

No of course its not....but then I'd question whether or not that was an actual fear of death rather than hell itself. Because thats what it ultimately comes down to innit.

And if it was a fear of death, then why wouldnt people see it as a release instead....And learn to live their lives in such a way that they would be ok with it.

But death aside... (Coz to a Muslim thats totally rational)

Tell me! Seriously, though, phobias ain't anything you gotta be ashamed of. It's a psychological issue.

For some reason I hate touching spiders.. for example if there's one in my room, I always have to put my gloves on to carry it outside, I can never do it without any gloves, I don't know why!

I have a weird phobia, well i wouldn't really call it a phobia cos it isn't that serious. It doesnt have a name so i will give it one... handbreakophobia. Doesn't sound v. good like, well anyways, i no someone hu didn't put their handbreak on properly and so their car was rolling away and nearly crashed. Ever since i have heard this story i have a phobia i might forget to put my handbreak on (being the idiot i am) so i'm sometimes double checking my car hasn't rolled away lol.

i used to have a phobia of peanut butter :embarrass until one of my friends tricked me into eatin a peanut butter biscuit and all was well:D

like phobias are all in the mind, if your scared of ants or whatever, just get someone to lock you in a room full of ants, and make sure they stand at the door and hold it down, so you cant escape :D and after the intial trauma and screamin you will get used to them and woo hoo you will be cured!!!

but to some people some fears might be irrational and some fears to others may be rational,

like my mum is really freaked by snakes, and my dad thinks thats a old of crap:p so again it depends on peoples views!

the most interestin bit about phobias, is that they are triggered by childhood experiences :D

not negative childhood experiences, like there must have been somethin in your childhood that makes you fear whatever you doooo diddly doo, for example who remembas goosebumps them horror books, someone i know is scared of bumps or bumpy thins because them books freaked them out when they was small,

it dont mean you had bad childhood event, it could be a event or situation, like a ant was crawlin on you when you were sleepin and you began hatin ants, summin like that :D
