The Fear of Heights

Hi guys, today I’m gonna talk about something I have feared ever since I was a little kid and still fear to this day, and its heights.

I don’t know why but heights just happen to suck the life out me. Every time I’m somewhere high I start to freak out and panic like a total idiot. But it’s not just about being in a high place that freaks the shit out of me, no every fucking time I see a large and incredibly tall building my heart starts to race at a thousand miles per hour and my hands start to shake and I feel like a complete loser (which I am).  And sometimes it can be really embarrassing, for example, once I was with some friends and we decided to get my friends, little sister, a toy, but the problem (for me, everyone else was fine) was that the toy shop was on the top floor, and there was no fucking elevator. I mean what type of a sick person places a fucking toy shop on like the 100th floor, I mean think of the kid)s who can’t climb up the fucking largest staircase ever.

Another example is when I went to London with my family we went to the London Eye and it was great for me until I found out we had to actually go inside a large round box thingy made completely out of glass and it just happened to rotate around a fucking wheel, and don’t get me wrong that thing was so high I swear I could see the Eiffel Tower from up there. Now I couldn’t back put off going in it as we had already bought the tickets so I prayed to God to help me survive and stepped in the box thingy, now I saw everyone around me walking in the glass box and taking pictures of the view while I sat there with my sweaty hands and racing heart beat next to an old Chinese lady who after five minutes also got up and walked around, and everyone was just staring at me like I was paralyzed or something (although I did act like it so…)

Alright guys I think this enough for now, I hope you enjoyed these embarrassing stories, and I hope they made you feel less like an idiot, cause let’s be honest no one’s as stupid and clumsy as me (yeah I’ll just go and cry in a corner alone now) bye guys and hope you enjoyed. -H

    I can totally relate to this totally rational fear. I hate heights myself, and funnily the best way to conquer it is to face it head on, although I’m still yet to throw myself off a bridge on a line (bungee jump), or conquer a high ropes course, something as simple as climbing a ladder, or looking off balconies higher that 2 stories has now become an exhilarating feeling, rather than being completely paralyzed.

      Same, and the worst part is that when you’re scared of climbing a two story high ladder, people are gonna look at you like you’re from space. But it’s always nice to know I’m not the only one who has this fear.

    I was always ok with heights til I was 5. I was on a 6 foot tall brick wall that I was jumping off into my dad’s arms. Over and over until the one time he looked away, and I still jumped.

    Fears can basically ruin you so much, and I’m sad for people who have that in their lives. It’s so hard to break the chains of fear that you’ve been tied to since you were so young. I don’t have any major fears that I can think of, which makes me glad.
    Heights don’t scare me, the thought of being able to fall off the building scares me. Heights to me are nothing. I don’t know why, I just get scared at the idea of getting seriously injured or anyone I care about getting seriously injured and I’m pretty sure that’s the only think that I’m seriously having a “fear” of.

    We share that in common. I absolutely have a phobia for heights but when scared i think adrenaline helps because i do a good job climbing or jumping.

    I really relate- heights have been a fear that’s been increasing for me in the past couple years, and it’s definitely a challenge when so many around me seem to love tall buildings and glass floors! Thank you for you stories though!!

    Same pinch – I too fear high rise elevators or staircases while getting down specially. What helps me is , I avoid looking down to actually get the idea of heights I am at !

    Don’t let your fears get the better of you, you are stronger than that, you just need to look deeper into yourself and tap into that inner strength and you will overcome. #bestrong

    I call myself as an adventure seeker and adrenaline junky when I started to conquer my fear of heights. I started it off by trekking with my buddies then chasing waterfalls where I actually have to jump (canyoneering). Then I tried to face a more challenging and nerve wrecking extreme activities like zip lining, sky biking, wall climbing, and free falling (plunging). And from then on, I get so hyped that I already forgot how scared I was with heights. 🙂

      Wow, you’re certainly very brave. That gives me hope that maybe I should try and conquer my fear like you did. ?

        Thank you. It wasn’t easy though but I really did try to cheer myself up every time I do something for the first time or something that scares me. I hope that one day you’ll be able to conquer your fears too. ?
