Hey everyone, it's Suma here! Today I wanted to talk about something that has been on my mind a lot lately - facing my fears head-on. Now, if you know me at all, you'll know that I am not the bravest person out there. In fact, I'm pretty much known for being scared of everything and crying at the drop of a hat. But recently, I've come to realize that constantly running away from things that scare me isn't going to help me grow as a person.

Fearing the Demons

One thing in particular that terrifies me is demons. Those creepy creatures with sharp teeth and glowing eyes give me nightmares for weeks! Just thinking about them sends shivers down my spine. Whenever we encounter one on our demon slayer missions, I can feel myself trembling uncontrollably and tears welling up in my eyes.

But you know what? Instead of letting this fear control me, I have decided to face it head-on. It won't be easy by any means, but if Zenitsu can find courage within himself when he needs it most (even though he's just as scared as I am), then so can I!

Overcoming My Fear

So how exactly do you conquer your fears when they seem so overwhelming? Well let me tell you what steps I plan on taking:

Step 1: Acknowledge Your Fear

The first step is acknowledging your fear and accepting that it exists within you. For the longest time, whenever someone would mention demons or anything related to them around us demon slayers-in-training ,I would immediately try to change the subject or run away from the conversation entirely.

But now,I understandthat ignoring these feelings won't make them go away.Instead,I needto confrontthem head-onand work throughthem slowlybut surely.I deserve togrow,andthisis partofmyjourneytowardsself-improvement.

Step 2: Educate Yourself

Knowledge is power, right? So the next step in facing my fears is to educate myself about demons. I've started reading books and talking to experienced demon slayers who have dealt with these creatures firsthand. By understanding their weaknesses and learning different fighting techniques, I hope to feel more confident when it comes time to confront them.

Step 3: Gradual Exposure

Now this one might be the hardest step for me - gradually exposing myself to situations that make me uncomfortable. For example, instead of completely avoiding missions where we might encounter a demon, I will start by accompanying my fellow demon slayers from a safe distance. This way, I can observe how they handle themselves and maybe even gain some inspiration along the way.

Of course,I'll stillbe scared.I mean,I'm not expectingto suddenlybecome braverovernight.Butby taking small stepsand pushingmyselfoutofmy comfort zonebit by bit,I believeI can slowlyovercome this fearthat has heldme backfor so long.

The Power of Friendship

One thing that gives me strength during these challenging times is having amazing friends by my side. Tanjiro,Kanao,and Inosukehave always supportedme,no matterhow ridiculousor emotionalI get.They remindmethat it'sokayto be afraid,andit's okaytocry.It doesn'tmake metheweakperson;in fact,itjust shows howmuchI careabout keepingeveryone safeandsound.Thatloveandloyaltyiswhatmotivatesmeto keepfightingmyfearsdespiteallthe tears shedalongthe way!
