Fear of someone walking behind me
by: Marian

I too have a great Fear of someone walking behind me, especially say on a towpath along the river and I either have to run ahead in case he/she may catch up with me or wait for the person to walk pas me so he/she is in front. I gives me the creeps when I see someone even very far behind me....

You're fear is all mental
by: Shane

Your fear of having people behind you is a fear I used to deal with when I was younger. You most likely were a bit traumatized by something that happened a long time ago, that you may not remember. I.e: Someone snuck up behind you as an infant and it may have scared you to the point where your brain locks on to that fear and amplifies it. It all depends, it's hard to say 'exactly' the cause of it.

As for dealing with it, you may have trust issues. So try learning to be more open with people and learn to trust them a bit, and if you aren't ready then let your friends know: "hey, I get anxious when people walk behind me or sit behind me, so if you could please let me know if you need to walk behind me."

As for your fear of not seeing land from a boat. You are most likely afraid of fish or sharks or any type of creature that lives beneath water. And land is your comfort zone because you know you are safe on land and that nothing can get you that you can not already see. As for dealing with this fear, my only advice is to take a boat cruise and force yourself to look out at the beautiful view of the ocean.

Once you overcome your fears you then may live a normal and happy life.

Hope this helps ^_^
