I conquered a fear this week. A big fear. I'm reaaalllllyyyyy proud of myself! For a long time....like my whole life...I've been afraid of the dark and I've never stayed overnight alone. I get paranoid really easily and so I've always made arrangements for when Carl goes out of town. This week I decided it was time...I had to conquer the fear of sleeping in the house alone.
SO, with Bauer at the foot of the bed, (who I knew would be ferocious sorta startled if anyone tried to break-in) I made it through Monday night only waking up about 9 times. I learned to take off Bauer's collar so I wouldn't wake up to every jingle he makes when he switches sleeping positions. All the nights since have been totally fine. It's weird...after the first night, it's been no big deal. I think being semi-snowed-in helped me psychologically. It was like I had no choice.
So, on to the next! Anybody else out there conquered a fear recently?
