My biggest fear is getting eaten by a shark. This is an irrational fear, I know, especially since the only times I have actually seen sharks in person have been at the aquarium. There really is no story behind why I am afraid of them, but the funny thing is that I am also extremely intrigued by them. I love watching and learning about sharks on the Discovery Channel and I used to watch this video on sea creatures everyday when I was about 5 years old. I get a sense of fear and anxiety every time I go out in the ocean. It also doesn’t help that my family perpetuates this fear by making fun of me and lying about stories of people getting eaten by sharks.
