How do I get over my fear of insects? ~Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,

It’s always hard to overcome fears, no matter how small, but there are a few things that work for me.

  1. Start small, try only spending a minute or two around the insects that scare you and overtime you will be able to increase the time 
  2. Take deep breaths and use relaxation techniques 
  3. Realize that you are bigger than the bug, so theoretically you would be more likely to hurt the big than the other way around

I hope that helped comfort you a little bit. I also have a fear around insects and this is what has helped me in the past. Good luck!
