Last year I tackled mental health with the hopes of shining a different light on the subject.

This year I decided to take on our worst fears and create 31 phobias.

I kinda like this one, because the eytes are actually on the persons body, hence, they are actually looking at anything but the person. It shows the irrationality of the fear (somewhat at least, I dont know much about it).

I had to google this strange phobia and it was interesting to read that it's somewhat a culture thing. Wikipedia: "...One of several reasons that cherophobia may develop is the belief that when one becomes happy, a negative event will soon occur that will taint their happiness, as if that individual is being punished for satisfaction. This belief is thought to be more prevalent in non-Western cultures. In Western cultures, such as American culture, it is almost taken for granted that happiness is one of the most important values guiding people’s lives..."

that is so true... it always happens to me i get so scared that something bad might happen after a laughter, something I can't prevent or control and then after a minute the fear that my fear might actually jinx it is even worse that my former fear.... I don't wish it anyone. We all deserve happiness and the type that lasts
