Learn What Fear Is & How To Overcome It
Most people have at some point or other experienced some form of irrational fear.
We have all been spooked by something that just didn’t make any sense.
For most, these fears or irrational behaviors eventually fade away and we get to carry on living a normal life.
But unfortunately for some, they develop into full blown debilitating issues which greatly effect and interfere with everyday life.
It’s at this stage that the fear has now developed into what is known as a phobia.
This causes extreme anxiety and prevents people from functioning or coping with everyday life in a normal manner.
What Is Fear
Fear is a normal reaction to danger.
It triggers physiological changes that help us fight or flee.
Thereby helping us to survive.
However, the human brain is a complex organ that has amazing learning and association skills in order to help us survive better.
It can learn new associations quickly and alert us to new dangers by triggering reactions that we do not consciously control.
If we have a learned reaction that kicks in automatically in certain non dangerous situations, then we have developed a phobia.
These reactions can be confusing, bewildering and also harmful if it prevents us from going about our daily lives.
All fear is rooted in the mind. So therefore it makes sense that the mind itself is the best tool to overcome such fears.
