Kiri, my youngest daughter, is a bit of a chicken. She has been scared of heights since she was little, (she’s 23 now). She loves theme parks but hates the rides.
She has a boyfriend, Jiah, who LOVES the rides, the scarier the better.
Just recently they bought those tickets that allow you to go to Dreamworld all year round. Scaredy cat Kiri knew she would have to conquer her fear of the height and speeds of the big rides.
Jiah had a suggestion.
Just open your eyes and look where you are going. It is so much better than going on the ride and squeezing your eyes shut tight in fear.
Kiri tried it.
Of course it worked. When you are afraid of something, you just need to open your eyes and look at it.
Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real.
Fear is Fake. Look at it, face it and it will go away. Trust me it works, just ask Kiri.
