Although being afraid of flying is a burden, like most things, it also has a flip side. Don’t get me wrong, I wish I did not have deal with this phobia, but I have learnt to make the most of this inconvenience.
1. It makes you realize that most people are good.
I usually travel alone. I don’t have a friend to distract me, or my partner to rub my back when I’m having a full-blown panic attack. I sometimes wish I had a familiar face around to help me cope, but most of the time, I’m happy I don’t break down in front of someone I know.
