I know people deal with all kinds phobias, I am definitely not the only one. Some are afraid of spiders, snakes, or heights (as I am also afraid of heights AND flying) The one thing I do know is that we can't really control our phobias. People say i just need to try harder but that doesn't really help if I am being honest. And I have read rituals or things to keep you occupied on elevators but it is still there and it still terrifies me. I pray to God that I won't get stuck and most of the time I know he will get me through but I am also terrified of the time he decides to test me and show me I can handle it. Because I don't think I want to find out if I can handle it or not lol.
I just hope that one day I will be back to that little 5 year old girl who loved to ride the elevator to different floors all day long without any care in the world. I have no idea why I ever became afraid of them but in the future I can only hope I can get past letting it hinder me in anyway. And to anyone else with a hindering phobia I hope you can do the same!!
