Irrational Fears

Who is to say that a fear is or isn't rational? Just because it's not something harmful, or because a majority of people are not afraid of something specific then when someone does end up being very afraid of said something specific all of a sudden it's irrational?

I am ridiculously afraid of ghosts, deep water, and haunted houses(like the entertainment kind around Halloween), and I mean RIDICULOUSLY afraid. All of these things can and have scared me to the point of crying, feeling sick, or throwing up. I couldn't really tell you why I'm so afraid of these things either. The issue with haunted houses I think goes back to when I was a kid, my mom would make me go in them and they scared me so bad as a child and I've never been able to kick that fear.

Anyway, why is that irrational? My brain must have it's reasons for why I'm afraid. Plus aren't we all different, it's like defining what or who is normal. Who is to say what's normal when we have 6 billion different individuals on the planet with their own thoughts and ideas.
