Just By Myself.

I am afraid of the dark when I am alone, especially dark, wide-open spaces like a large field.

My mind creates awful things when real things are absent. objects, scenarios, anything. I think it's more a fear of my own creations than the dark.

When others are around, they give me something real to focus on. The same goes with real things, so long as I can tell exactly what it is. If I keep my attention focused, my imagination doesn't take over.

same thing here *see my story

Yeah, what you just said. :) I couldn't've said it better myself.

It is. I've been working so hard at removing the block that keeps associating dark with bad. I've broken many mental blocks, but this one is particularly stable, and I don't know why.

that sounds about right. i tend to be like that pretty often and it's really hard to think of things other than creepy stuff... i'm sure it will get better with time
