Wikepedia defines FEAR as a distressing negative emotion induced by a perceived threat. It is a basic survival mechanism occurring in response to a specific stimulus, such as pain or the threat of danger. In short, fear is the ability to recognize danger and flee from it or confront it, also known as the Fight or Flight response.
A negative feeling that succumbs any individual if we are faced by a scary situation. Fear is applied on everyday situations but often associated with paranormal images. I have read it somewhere ‘Fear is a vital response to physical and emotional danger—if we couldn’t feel it, we couldn’t protect ourselves from legitimate threats”. … TRUE!
One great example:
YUP! I am. I fear that i dont know how to fall in love and be loved. Its tragic!!!! I’m too comfortable playing single and feared the company of others. Will i suck on having a relationship? I dont want to be hurt again! I’d rather go to my corner and play with my shadow. Will he ever see me? Will he even try to look for me? Is he still looking for me? Fear of the things that i dont know and if ill ever fall in love again.
We are constantly living in fear. Fear of the things that we don’t know and the things that is yet to come. But i guess somehow fear is not that bad after all. It gives you the ability to believe on something higher than anyone else. HE can iron out things we may not know.. things that is yet to come but too scared to face – instead we hide behind our shadows of doubt. Why are we we so pessimistic? Is it because that we don’t want to be hurt? Are we afraid of our own shadows that we fail to look on the other side of the coin?
Fear gives you the ability to feel alive. Without it, then we maybe living in an ‘eye for eye’ society. Fear gives you the comfort that something needs to be done. It gives you the extra push to kick off a habit because your afraid what it may do to you in the long run. Fear gives you the ability to fly. It serves as the guiding force between you wings and reality. Fear gives you the ability conquer fear itself. It serves as a bulletproof when doubt sets in. We wont know what life may bring us not unless we let go.
