Be bold, be brave enough to be your true self.

Being brave means to know something is scary, difficult, and dangerous, and doing it anyway, because the possibility of winning the fight is worth the chance of losing it. 🏊🏊🏊🏊🏊🏊🏊🏊🏊🏊

What is it called when you have a fear of deep water?

It is fear or anxiety associated with the sea or water bodies of various types, though; many Bathophobic individuals are also known to fear tunnels, mountain valleys or caves. The word Bathophobia originates from Greek word bathios which means β€œdeep or depth” and phobos meaning β€œaversion, dread or fear”.

Both these conditions are not the same: Hydrophobia is the term used to represent the fear of water developed in later stage of Rabies. Aquaphobia, on the other hand, is a social phobia that is defined as the persistent, unwarranted and irrational fear of water.

Aquaphobia is a specific phobia that involves a level of fear that is beyond the patient's control or that may interfere with daily life. People suffer aquaphobia in many ways and may experience it even though they realize the water in an ocean, a river, or even a bathtub poses no imminent threat.

As usual, most children are scared of swimming at first. But with time they become confident.

We are happy that Nimi is now confident enough in the pool.
