13 reactions anyone who’s terrified of flying will recognize

The fears of flying are real for many. Stages of anxiety escalate quickly and the beginning moments of freaking out tend to go a little like so:

The night before you can’t sleep. You stress eat or drink at the airport beforehand. You question why flight attendants actually choose this as their career path. You never catch the safety instructions accurately. The pilot asks flight attendance to prepare for takeoff and holy shit is this really happening?? These are just a few of the many things that go through one’s head if flying is not his/her forte. Check out more honest reactions below.
