If you haven’t already, I suggest reading my first post about this and how my fear developed, which can be found here.
Bringing Me Closer to Flying:
Now, I just need to start off by saying how proud I am of myself. If anyone who has a fear of flying and still gets on a plane and is reading this, you should be proud of yourself. And for those that are not yet ready, but want to one day be ready, you are also included in this ‘proud’ category.
When I suddenly became afraid of flying, I didn’t know what to think. But what I did know was that one day I would go back to soaring in the air.
As I mentioned in my prior post about this, my grandfather passed away and I missed his funeral because it involved me traveling down to the Caribbean and I just couldn’t bring myself to fly. Ever since that day, I became pretty sad and beat myself up. However, I knew that my family would all go down there after one year and have a special memorial ceremony for him and visit his tomb. And for this, I knew I just had to go.
So within the year leading up, I did my homework and I learned that my personal fear of flying could be overcome with just two things: listening to yourself and confidence.
