Why am I so scared of the ocean?

I have been in it before and nothing bad happened to me, but it scares me. Even being in a pool by myself scares me. Is anyone else like this?

You have thalassophobia.
Many people have this.

Maybe you just have a small fear. You can get over this fear, it just takes time.

have you seen any scary movies about the ocean (Jaws)? If you have that's most likely why.

My sister-in-law hates to go in the ocean because she can't see the bottom. As for the pool it is probably because your were taught to be fearful. All the safety warnings growing up about swimming with a buddy.

I'm scared of the ocean. Way too many scary things are in it. Last time I ever stepped foot in it there was a huge jellyfish about 20 feet from me. No thanks and never again!

Sharks. Stingrays. Jellyfish. Whales. Deep water that you can't see everything in. I love the first four. The last one is creepy to anyone.
