How do I get over my fear of the dark?

Ok so I know this is a bit immature given that Im too old for this shit already . But I need your guy's mindset when it comes to walking through a dark room.

getting over any faer isn't easy, nor is it necesserily possible. But there is a chance. In general first thing needed is bravery - you need to stop acting on your fear and start listening to your rational mind instead. Step into darkness. You will fear, that's normal. But don't step out.
Once this is done, start relaxing. Breathing slowly and deeply, informing yourself there's nothing to fear. Repeat as many times as possible. The more scary an enviroment will be, the better the results. Hopefully this'll diminish your emotions to normal levels. Remember that some fear should always be present, as this is healthy

No there's a whole genre of psychology about getting over fears. Go read a fucking textbook about it.

it will generally say to ease yourself into it. what if you wore a blindfold? Do that each day for a few mins until you are comfortable doing it for a few hours in a row. Then try other similar situations.

and thus came your desire to insult me? I still don't get it. Also, while admittedly books are all right, they are far from being comprehensive or having only proper information put into them at this point

Have you run your fingers down the wall and have you felt your neck skin crawl, when you're searching for the light?

Sometimes when you're scared to take a look, at the corner of the room, you have sensed that something is watching you?

Primal fear .. deep down the brain one of our primitive forefathers still dwells and is frightened of what might hide in the dark or the tall grass
