FEAR

I am browsing thru several pages of a magazine when I come across a brand name "No Fear." But this is not to promote their products or whatsoever. :) I get focused on the word FEAR and thought how and why we feel afraid sometimes. Is this feeling a prerequisite of something? Is this feeling created for something we people need to realize? These are few questions I will try to answer.

Rapid heartbeats, too much sweating... 

 On my opinion, fear lives on the concept of not knowing something AND also when we know too much of a thing. We often feel fear when we less know a thing that we need to do or worse not even knowing at all. Having no idea of what will happen next creates fear.

Think about death. Most of us fear death and I am one of it. The simple reason why is because I do not know what will happen to me after life. Who knows? To mitigate this fear, society created beliefs and norms which will help people learn what is death. In turn, accept death as a form and part of man's life cycle. Some believe in reincarnation, some believe in fruitful life after death, some believe that we will either go to hell or heaven depending on how He will weigh the life that you have on earth, and such. But despite this, man still fear death.

Experience lessen fear. When we are afraid of something and challenge ourselves to face our fears, we are on the learning process. And probably after learning, we lessen the fear that we previously felt. Riding on Anchors Away at Enchanted Kingdom was one of the things that I fear when i first step on that place. But after the experience, fear changed to enjoyment.

Experience increases fear. Sometimes when we experienced something, that also increases our fear on that thing. This is because you now know what happens when you do it.

At the end, we must understand fear and use this to move forward. Some people enjoy fear and the feeling of overcoming this. I wish I do the same. Haha!

I'm scared of dying coz like what you said, I don't know what after life has to offer. I also fear of not knowing or recognizing the people I used to know who died before me. I read somewhere that when you die, you don't have the memory to remember anymore or recognize faces.

I think Fear is only a mental factor. Pero ako man minsan, kahit walang dahilan, basta naging negative thinker ako bigla, ayun, nerbyos ang katapat lols. Sana nga ay matulad din ako sa mga taong ini-enjoy lang ang fear para ma-overcome ko din to. Think positive dapat!

Nice post btw.

@Khanto - nyahahay.. kelangan tlga maexperience ang death to overcome fear? adik lang ah. :D

@Poldo - wow! astig ka pre, ako kasi takot sa death.. siguro its too early for me to realize that.. :D

@Emmaleigh can you still remember that book? hmm.. interesting.

@Fiel-kun thank you Fiel! Yup, agree ako sa sinabi mo.. its a mental state only... which for me is hard to control. hehe!

yeah tama ka, nakakatakot yung mga bagay na hindi mo alam (wala kang alam ni katiting) pero kung iisipin napakachallenging.

katulad ng pagsakay sa space shuttle sa enchanted nakakatakot, nakakalula pero ng masubukan ko ang sarap sa pakiramdam.

pro siguro hindi ko matri-try ang humawak ng daga. Tae, patayin nio nalang ako!!! ahahhaa :D

Benh said...
