Getting over my fear of clowns

Guest post written by Anna Webb

For the longest time I've been absolutely terrified of clowns. I think I realized it when I was little and my parents took me to the circus. Needless to say, I haven't been back to the circus since and I refuse to hire a clown for any of my kids' birthday parties. But I'm trying to work on that and get over that fear right now.
I went online a couple of weeks ago to find some advice on how to get over things that you're scared of but you really shouldn't be. That's when I randomly saw the site www.cleartvbundle.com and decided to switch over my internet service to it after I gave it a thorough reading.
Well, the advice that I did find on conquering your fears suggested confronting pop culture references that reinforce your fear. So I went to my local library and checked out the It book by Stephen King, the mother of all scary clown things. A boyfriend in college made me watch the movie of it, so I'm kind of worried about reading it. But this is something I need to get over.

It is almost unthinkable that someone would fear a harmless and lovable creature such as a clown except perhaps due to some traumatic experience in the past regarding a clown. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
