Get Over Fear And Live Again!
It is easy for people to say get over fear when the event that is causing it is happening to someone else. Almost everyone, past and present, has been in a situation that totally puts them into a state of fear. Have you and can you remember the cause? The answer would be a resounding yes I would say. However can you feel the emotion? Probably not yet once it is over you may find it very difficult to shake and put it out of your thoughts. It can be difficult to get over the emotion of the fear but once it is gone only the memory remains. It is interesting how the human psyche works. The mind just keeps churning and whirling around almost like it is out of control.
You can be in a state of dread fearing the thought of an impending issue or trepidation about facing a challenge that has not happened. The anxiety is real. It takes its toll emotionally and even physically. Your mind whirls not being certain of what to do. It is like being called to the Principal’s office, completely out of the blue or not, when you were a kid. Most of us would be in a state of terror even if we didn’t do anything. The mind freaks out and the body follows with sweaty palms and or other regions. We begin to breathe a little faster. We may even have a bit of nervous tension making us tremble. This is actually not fear. It is anxiety. A subtle difference but it is a different emotion.
However when some physical event is occurring, such as an accident, the fear that you are experiencing is actually fear. It becomes useful in many cases. Adrenalin pumps throughout your body and your brain reacts without really thinking. You jump into fight or flight mode. Receiving this shot of adrenaline helps you face the problem. This is like when someone hears a scream from a burning building and runs in to save the individual. They didn’t ponder it because if they did they probably would realize it was too dangerous and not react. Thinking about what might happen. Once again when we are experiencing a fear mode, which is engaged from a future event, it seems to be difficult to shake and just keeps persisting. This where living in the present comes in.
Every human being on the face of the earth finds themselves in a state of fear occasionally or what we consider to fear. This together with anxiety makes it off. Fear doesn’t necessarily dissipate easily because the event is in the future and being anticipated. Once it embeds itself within your psyche it may and probably will absolutely freeze you from taking action.
There are ways to overcome fear, however the best way of overcoming fear, in most cases, is to go right through it. Basically, to quote Susan Jeffers, “feel the fear and do it anyway.” Many self- help and spiritual teachers use the word fear as an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real. That explains it a nutshell when you really think about it. Most of what we call fear is caused by the anticipation of a future event. How do you handle it?
