    Some may be rooted in trauma, like mine are. Some may not be. Like cats being shit scared of cucumbers because of their biological fear of snakes. I think, while it’s comforting and gives a sense of closure to know why you have the phobias you do, that it’s more important to focus on how to get through them and heal from them, as this can be done without ever knowing the root cause.
