Do you like being scared by books, films, and surprises? Describe the sensation of being scared, and why you love it — or don’t. Photographers, artists, poets: show us FRIGHTENING.
As a young child, I enjoyed books like Goosebumps and any R.L. Stine books I could get my hands on but as years passed I became more and more frightened and gave it up. Not to mention, I had been and still have nightmares almost, if not, every night since I was a toddler.
I stopped watching the scary movies or I would peak at a few. Then there was only certain types of movies I would watch that were scary and suspenseful but after a while my imagination became to vivid and my nightmares would prevent me from rest.
I don’t like thrillers that involve suffering and torture, not in the least. I don’t find that to be entertaining and it only disturbs during the viewing and days after. Mystery and suspense was more along the lines of what I could tolerate.
It is fun to be scared when it is harmless. Recently, I’ve gone out of my comfort zone and been watching more suspenseful tv shows. I am in the midst of watching , The Witches of East End and I will be watching American Horror Story: Coven tonight on my DVR. All shows of which I probably would have never considered watching before I am now becoming intrigued. Am I scared or anxious when a certain scene comes on? Yes, but I am facing my fears so they will vanish. I think it is working because I am starting to enjoy the mystery again.
I am even thinking about researching the history of witchcraft without it interfering with my belief in God and Jesus Christ, of course. I just am on a movement to be more open-minded to everything this world has to offer.
And just so you know, my nightmares are sometimes worse than any movie I have ever seen and that scares me the most.
