This four letter word seems so small but yet it can haunt many of us for most of our life. Most of us still live in fear every passing day and sometimes I fall into that deep dark hole too. But it’s okay because we are not perfect.
Fear is something that we will be fighting for the rest of our life whether we want it or not. And the scary thing about is that it can exist even in the smallest of thought. I read an online post about fear and I like how they describe fear as.
Fear is a vital response to physical and emotional danger—if we didn’t feel it, we couldn’t protect ourselves from legitimate threats. But often we fear situations that are far from life-or-death, and thus hang back for no good reason. Traumas or bad experiences can trigger a fear response within us that is hard to quell. Yet exposing ourselves to our personal demons is the best way to move past them.
Fear makes us more cautious about the things happening around us and sometimes it can make someone shake down to their very bones. But the ironic thing is that we have to face our demons to release ourselves for fear itself. Then the question:
How many people are willing to face their demons.
In the society we live in today, the increase in fear causes a lot of people to be stressed out, depressed, insane or just can’t find anything to be satisfied with. The fear of not succeeding, the fear of letting someone down, the fear of failing are just examples of us today. Is it that we are giving ourselves too much pressure or have our society forced everyone to be like this.
President Franklin Roosevelt once said that “the only thing that we have to fear is fear itself”
And I find that very true. The fear of having fears is most likely the cause of a lot of our fears today.
I’m scared of a lot of things because this mind of mine don’t stop often. But I’m not scared of facing my fears because I know that I have people around me that have my back. So when I fall, I never stay down.
We are just scared of our inner demons. Lend some power and fight it. Remember that you are never, never, alone.
So what is your fear?
