Look into the abyss . Depending on your outlook , many things can be imagined existing on the other side . Depending on your situation , there can be a reward , penance , or something in between awaiting you . But if you are hankered and controlled by fear , you won’t even want to try and see what there is on the other side . It’s paralyzing . And in big doses , fear can kill you . First mentally and then physically . It is by far the worst emotion one can experience . It takes away our human gene of attaining goals . It makes us stressed and depressed and eats our insides . Have I emphasized enough how much of a problem fear can be ?
Now that we know what it is , we can start tearing it apart . Many people live in what I call perpetual fear , or a constant , sometimes subconscious , fear that makes their decisions and choices for them . This comes from too much anxiety and stress and a lack of hope or light at the end of the tunnel . This usually leads to Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This is a fairly new way of defining fear as overtaking everything else . You feel it at work , at home , and in practically every situation . And it often masks itself as physical illness , mainly in your digestive system. Ever wonder why you can’t eat a lot of foods at certain times ?

This is the obstruction of fear . It is the tin ceiling ready to hit our heads .
Now look at this pic
This one may scare some. Not only because of the fear of heights inherent in so many of us , but also because we have to peel away layers of anxiety to even start comprehending how to plan to be on top of our world . Not others’ worlds , but ours . It’s important to concentrate on us .
Personally , I’d take baby steps . Like the one below.
Notice the concentration and total dedication in this picture . There are no people with fear at the gym . They may be afraid other times , but they are not afraid at the gym . This explains the effects of adrenaline rushes . Working out , meditating , or simply playing in any way are all activities that produce stimulants against fear and anxiety .
On the road to Education , Empowerment , and Enlightenment (EEE), fear is the emotion to overcome . Look at why you need to fix it.
When I had to overcome disease at an early age , I had to learn how to make the most of every situation . I had to see the glass half full . When we have to face things that are not as abstract as a proven illness , it is often harder to defend ourselves against it . We cannot perish on our sofas or on the screen of our smartphones . We need to channel our energy .
The good news is that fear can be overcome . It needs to look sunny at the end of the abyss .
We need to work together to make the transition easier for all . It’s a duty we all have to ourselves and to others .
In the next few blog posts , I will take you through what many have gone through to overcome fear . This will enable us to succeed . And it needs to be a cooperative or communal success . If you look at previous posts , you will notice success, even if it is just through the joy of a red leaf on the sidewalk .
