Phobias can, again, restrict what you feel able to do and have a real impact on your day-to-day life. Depending on what that phobia is, if it’s something that’s very common in the place where you live, for example, let’s say you have a social phobia. We all have to, from time to time, go out into the world, and if we have a very strong phobia of social situation or meeting new people, then we might start to really avoid those situations, which can really restrict our lifestyle. If it’s a phobia of something that you don’t really need to do that often, so if you’re someone that doesn’t tend to travel very much and you’re quite frightened of flying, then it doesn’t necessarily have that much of an impact on your life.
