Embrace your fear instead of resisting it

Fear-An unpleasant feeling triggered by the perception of danger, real or imagined. Everybody has a fear of at least one thing. I’m sure, no one can disagree with it, and people who say that they don’t fear anything, are scared to admit the fact, for their own personal reasons of course, which infact is a fear on its own.

To be honest, people shouldn’t be ashamed of the actuality that they are scared of something, even though that something, is silly according to them. Rather, they should proudly accept and confront it.

Confronting fear can be very hard. Sometimes people cannot do it in their whole lifetime. I, for example, am scared of darkness and haven’t been able to get rid of it even though I’m fifteen now. It’s not because I watch horror movies sometimes, but it’s because I’m just apprehensive of it in general that has nothing to do with scary movies.

According to me, fear is like a necessary evil, more on the evil side, but its also necessary sometimes. It just makes us feel safe because we prevent doing things that give us the frightening chills. Feeling afraid is very natural and helpful in many situations, if you think of it.

Therefore we should accept these facts and move on. We should also try to face these fears and throw them out of our lives if they are bothering us a lot, but if that doesn’t happen, then we should embrace it and let the fear course through us. We should say a hello to fear and sit with it instead of pushing it away and resisting it.
