What Were You Afraid of as a Child?


#1

Growing up, we might have had one or more fears. Such that when we think about it now, they crack us up.

As a child, I was scared of airplanes, yes you read that right. :see_no_evil:
Back then, whenever I hear the ‘roaring’ sound of a plane, I’d run to my mum and bury my face in her laps.
So, there was this particular day I was outside, then a breeze blew suddenly and I saw an object flying over my head, I screammmmmeeed and shouted for my mum.
She ran out, only to see it was a black nylon :joy:

Till today, my folks still taunt me about it :expressionless:

Share your own hilarious fears as a child.:point_down:

lol… black nylon


#3

Virtually anything flying in the sky.

Makes me feel like I’m gonna be carried away by it. :see_no_evil:


#4

I was scared of darkness especially at night. Hanging clothes or objects in the room always looked like someone to me. I would usually sleep with the lights on or better still with my parents.


#5

Just look at you :joy::joy::joy:


#6

Mine was and still is cockroach! Then rat and chicken :weary: I still run away from them


#7

I was and am still scared of losing my mother. I have watched her in so much pain that I shudder whenever the thought crosses my mind.


#8

She will live long :heart:️Always pray for her

Even till now, a bit. Especially when I’m home alone.

I used to be scared of darkness… Used to be o.

Especially when I just hear that someone died, please don’t send me to go and bring something alone at night :joy::joy:

That was then shaa, I’m not scared of darkness at all. Because I noticed that being scared of darkness and imagining seeing objects/clothes as spirits at night is nothing but our imagination. There’s nothing like ojuju… Mopelola,fear fear girl :joy::joy::joy:

Ermmm, as for chicken and other animals, I’m not really scared of them, I just respect myself and avoid them :rofl::rofl::rofl:

As for cockroach, I must kill it. I’m not scared of it.

SMH. It’s harmless cockroaches you kill, you can’t kill chicken. Cover your face.
