The damaging effect of "FEAR"

What is fear?

According to the English dictionary, "the advanced dictionary", fear can be defined as an unpleasant emotion that is caused by the threat of danger, pain or harm.

This unpleasant emotion that is characterized by fear comes as a result of some of the nursed feelings we've been hooked with across many years and it could be as a result of the fear of the unknown and even the known persons around us.

Moreover, it is not entirely right to say that fear is a wrong call given the current situation of things in the world where the word love now seems more like a relegated thing in order to give right to the more unacceptably bad hate reputation that seems to be rather more on a rampaging effect.

This however, brings to question as regards what kind of fear is to be seen as the good fear and which one is the bad fear given the above statement that not all fear should or is rightly said or regarded to be bad given the current situation at hand and as such, we shall be looking briefly into why these statements are correctly so.

" The good fear"

Picture yourself in a situation whereby there is a fight amongst many youths in the area where you live and the quest was to know which of the warring gangs of youths should have the right to determine everything within the area where they live and you see the so much escalation of violence amongst them to an extent that if it's not cushioned, then, it will lead to a lot of issues relating to either death or mass injuries, would you rather put yourself in line with the situation where you stand a chance a either be seriously injured or perhaps, lose your life in the process? Running away or staying clear from such turbulent moment is a direct way of saying you do not want such confrontations which could either be said to mean being afraid or not but in the actual sense, what you have done was to use your wisdom in order to stay clear of troubles and stay alive and away from injuries. This for me, is the good fear especially, as it justifies the above given definition of fear according to the advanced English dictionary.

Another of the good fear is when you have being through a series of disappointments which are either caused by close friends, relatives and foes around you in the past and by simply avoiding involving yourself in such a situation again is not and cannot be said to mean being fearful in the wrong way but rather in the right way that justifies the fact that what you are trying to do is staying clear of a second disappointment from the experience of the first one you've had in the past after all, it is always said that if beaten once, then you should be twice shy if we really do stand a chance of avoiding the second damaging blow.

Having said all that, let us then look into what that constitutes the wrong fear.

"The wrong or bad fear"

Think of a situation whereby you were given a life changing opportunity that requires a commitment of your little funds as an investment to give impetus and your right to earn massively from what you were offered, would you out of fear of the fact that you haven't done such a thing before even when the explanation about it seems quite clear, miss out on what was to be seen and considered as a life changing opportunity?

Think also, that the crypto system came up into existence as a result of some quick individual thinking by Mr Nakamoto, the owner of the world's most important coin, - " the bitcoin", think of those that were able to become early adopters of this coveted coin when it was still in its relatively low price after it was obvious they overcame their fears and had these coins as many as their available funds could purchase for them and now, the sky doesn't seem to be their limits anymore as a good number of them have as a result of this become made millionaires and billions which is never an automatic thing but a rather more human induced desire to reach that top height given the removal of fear in order to reach that acceptable position.

Take these cautions now.

In addition to all that, it is worthy of note that;

Fear:

Is all but a thief that would rob you of your happiness even when you less expect it.

Fear:

Is all but an opportunity waster as it will deter you from achieving what you are supposed to achieve had it been that it wasn't present at the initial time.

Fear:

Can make you lose your grip on real riches as the investment purpose for which you would have been able to hold on to would have slipped through your fingers if care is not taken.

Having said that and many more, it is all a befitting idea to know that in whatever situation we find ourselves, we should be able to know when to apply fear which may not be wrong given the situation on ground and when not to do that given the relative situation on ground as well but for all we do know of, we could do more by applying more wisdom rather than leaving ourselves at the mercy of what others do want from us which is undoubtedly, fear related thank you for rearing and love you all so dearly, good morning.

Fear is a natural signal that one may be in danger. No doubt it is useful too. But, excess fear can hinder one from achieving what they are supposed to. Excessive fear could even be a kind of disorder if I'm not mistaken.
