FEARWEEK at desteni: What are you Fears?

This is fear week at desteni. That means simply list all the fears we have carried within us all along. Dont mistake mental fears for present and immediate dangers. Standing in front of a running train is not an act of fearlessness, it is pure stupidity. Likewise escaping from a running train is not an act of fear, rather an act of self-support. Don’t be stupid, use common sense in listing fears.

One by one all of humanity is living in fear. Most fears are learned during childhood years and get deeply buried within us, manifesting all through out our lives. And of course fears are not without consequences. For example, if you always fear meeting new people, by simple mathematics, it would mean you will be isolated and lonely. Because as you meet someone new you will start to fear them, and the other person sensing your fear will in fact end up doing or saying something to activate your fears. So all you have done is simply manifest your fear of others each time you meet new people. Now imagine you getting married with all that fears within you, rather difficult task to live with another with all that fears unresolved.

Just for the fun of it, try to list all of your fears, can you? Here is my list of fears:
