Fear is something that we live with every day. For some of us, it’s the driving force that motivates us to do better each day. For other’s, it’s more of an instinct that warns us against danger and other hazards that life may throw our way. And for an unfortunate majority, it is somewhat of a combination crutch/roadblock that we allow to hold us in place or even move us backwards in our life. While most times people associate fear with negativity instantly, it must be stated that fear, though at times it’s incredibly inconvenient, is a very necessary emotion. Without fear there would be no limits for us to challenge, no heights for us to aim for. If things were not occasionally scary to us when presented, this world would be in a far worse state than it is currently in, due to the constant array of reckless behaviour that humans would be committing without fear to put a sort of rational voice back into their heads. My question to you is, what are you afraid of? Now you may feel free to answer this anyway that you like because I understand that it is a pretty open question. Some, like me, may provide the surface answer such as they have a fear of heights or bats which are two totally rational fears. Especially bats, I mean honestly they’re literally everything scary about birds and rats fused into one tiny fast little animal. If I were to go a little deeper I’d say that I fear dying alone and not just in the sense of dying and nobody cares enough to come to my funeral but, also in the sense that I’m afraid of literally dying in my room or someplace with no one even in close vicinity, like people have to find me, you know what I mean? So again, what are you afraid of? And a follow up question, what WERE you afraid of that you’ve overcome, either by willpower or simply by having no other choice??
