Fear is a usual factor for us but it is downright unusual when fear of something haunts you for life. That we call phobia. As human beings, celebrities are afraid of things and situations too. Sometimes, they are just strange and unusual. This article is just about those celebrities with unusual phobias.
Some unusual myths about phobias
Almost 20% of us experience a specific kind of phobia that can be overcome by treatments
Although a large number of people have either mild or extreme phobias there are some unusual myths that have been passed down from generation to generation.
Some of these myths are so unusual and cruel that they would make you question humanity. Here are some unusual phobia myths that I am sharing here before talking about celebrities with unusual phobias
- Phobias are like the irrational fear of any particular object or situation. It can be genetic or caused by some traumas. Regardless of these facts, some people go on to explain that people with phobias are crazy and lunatic.
- Some people think phobia and fear are the same things. While truly phobia is like extreme fear of something or someone. Fear is just a response to a threat in order to survive it. A bit of an unusual analogy I would say.
- Some groups of people think that people with a phobia cannot overcome their fear and by some group, I meant a large number of people. But there are just so many treatments and exercises that can make this problem shoo away.
- Some groups of people try to explain that phobia is a part of personality traits and that people cannot overcome it. Well, that’s a pretty interestingly unusual myth I would say because phobia does sound like it’s integrated into your personality. But we all know that’s not true.
