Drowning / Sea
I always view the sea or ocean as a spectacular sight: its clear and vibrant color, how it reaches the horizon, its calmness and the refreshing sensation you get while looking at it. But despite these things, fear always dominate me every time I step into the water. Its vastness, depth and uncertainties horrify me and my inability to swim makes it worse.
I still remember the time when me and my friends went to Puerto Galera. They were very excited because of the water activities that they can do such as parasailing, jet ski, banana boat and snorkeling. I was very scared but I don't want to spoil the fun so I decided to join them. I don't know how many times I clung to my life vest or to whoever was nearest to me, and drank too many saltwater. After going through the banana boat, jet ski and snorkeling, I declined the more challenging activities because I might die due to drowning or heart attack.
I thought I can overcome this fear but I guess it's not that easy.
