We all have at least one of these and each one of us is guilty of them, the phobias. Mine is going underwater. I am a good swimmer but I never open my eyes underwater even in a swimming pool! When life gave me opportunity to live in Maldives and I started making my bucket list of top things to do in Maldives, Scuba diving was nowhere in that list. So what changed and why I decided and did scuba dive is what this account is all about. I hope that this experience of mine will help people with similar fears to go for it! It is my story of how I got over my phobia, step by step and came out victorious on the other side!
