As you are probably aware I’m afraid of heights, yet I still throw myself off of the tops of buildings for the fun of it. I’m also terribly afraid of flying. Not sure where the heights phobia came from, but flying I’m well acquainted with it’s initiation.
I don’t let my fears rule my life. Well I try to conquer those that are easiest for me to do, because some are a lot more difficult to deal with on an emotional level. Jumping from a building and using my ability to bend air and earth to float to the ground is a coping mechanism – when life gets hard, I jump. I control that fear. I control my safety and my landing and I’m in control. Where as I can’t always control those around me, or a situation that’s stressing me out.
