I don’t know why but I don’t always feel safe when I am walking alone. The worst is that I love taking shortcuts. The sooner I get home better it is. But during the night, shortcuts are not really used by normal people. I guess I am not normal.
The craziest part is that I am scared. Not scared of the dark itself but scared of what it can hide.And I still walk in the dark after school, after work because I think that I should be able to walk alone without being scared of someone attacking me. Sometimes, I force myself to walk in those shortcuts because for me it is like an other way of facing my fear that should not even be.
