It is a feeling we have all dealt with at one time or another. It is something that we first experience as children, and are conditioned to respond to in many different ways. Some of us live in constant fear; of accidents, of bad people doing us harm, or of physical ailments. Others simply take things as they come in life, whether they are good or bad things. In the dictionary, fear is defined as: “A feeling of agitation or anxiety caused by the presence or imminence of danger.” That is a rather ominous definition. Fear can also refer to general anxiety, as in “fear of speaking in public” or “fear of open areas”. These fears arise not necessarily from a present or imminent threat, but rather a perceived threat, which to some can be just as scary. For most people, fear is an unpleasant feeling and it is important that we learn to deal with fear in the best manner possible. Most of us have seen a horror movie at one time or another.
