I think I’m ready to start yet another category of my blog – the Don’t Be Afraid series of posts.
Fear is one of the most natural feelings we can experience. It’s a self-preservation mechanism which takes a form of a strong unpleasant emotional state when we sense some kind of danger. It is quite common to feel the danger unconsciously, and the more unclear the possible threat is, the stronger your fear becomes.
What I’d like to cover in my series is just a basic list of our everyday fears practically everyone has. Some fears are simple and even childish, others are serious and very hard to overcome, so hopefully my notes will help you understand just a little bit more.
The purpose of this series is to:
- show you that the fears you have are common, well-known and can be dealt with
- provide an explanation how you can overcome your fears
- help you become a stronger person
- help you look at your fears from a different point of view
