In today’s world, there are millions of people that suffer with phobias, and many feel like these fears are completely arbitrary. From a fear of spiders to a fear of being buried alive on accident and waking up in a coffin. While these phobias may seem to arise by mere chance, there are a few things that can lead to these fears.
Starting with the more simple phobias: they can arise from a stressful or traumatic event that occurred in their childhood. Phobias can also be learnt from a child’s parents or older siblings while growing up. As for the more complex phobias, they are still somewhat a mystery. While research suggests that genetics, brain chemistry, and life experiences may cause these more complex phobias, there is still no definitive answer to what causes these strange fears.
