I want no part of this.

 

I am terrified of flying. TERRIFIED. The idea of getting on an airplane literally makes me sick to my stomach, and I can feel my legs getting shaky and wobbly just typing it. It has nothing to do with 9/11 or terrorism or anything else like that — I have been petrified of flying since well before that. I don’t like not being able to see the ground. I’m not scared of heights because I can be in tall buildings or ride on Ferris wheels without a problem. When you’re 30,000 feet in the air, you can’t see anything below you but clouds. Or if you’re flying to another continent…the ocean. Oh goody. I understand completely that it’s an irrational fear, that I’m more likely to die in the shower than I am in a plane crash or something, but I don’t care. If I can’t get there by car or by train, then I’m not meant to see it. I can live with never seeing Australia or even Hawaii. There’s plenty in the continental United States I’d like to see before my time on this rock is up.

    We do indeed live in amazing country. I also love that you KNOW yourself and are completely comfortable in that place. 👍🏼

    I was once on a flight from Amsterdam to the UK, when I found myself sitting next to a lady who was scared of flying. Once in the air, her companion kept urging her to look out of the window, while her knuckles went whiter and whiter as she gripped the armrests. Eventually, she turned to me and said, “Aren’t you scared of flying?” I don’t think I helped her much with my answer. “Flying’s easy,” I said, “It’s smashing into the ground at hundreds of miles an hour that I’d be scared of.”
