When I was a child, I use to be so daring and fearless. One thing that I was always scared of was heights. However, being I was the only girl in the neighborhood for awhile I really had no choice but to tough it out in front of the boys. I would just be scared about it in my head usually, rarely did I let the boys see that I was scared of heights, or anything at that matter. This compares to the boys in the Lord of the Flies because a lot of the boys are scared but they don't want to show it. I think that some of the boys hold in their fear for the reason I did, you don't want anyone else to know that you are scared. If you show fear then your fear just grows and you become scared of even more things. I also think that some of the boys are scared to even admit to themselves that they fear different things on the island.
