It is an age old concept that fear drives a man or any other species into a frozen state. It induces a loss of sanity and a decisive factor to act in certain way. But on the contrary my theory is that fear is not always a negative force, and it makes us courageous and to take bold decision to face different challenges of life, and in fact leads us to SUCCESS!!
So FEAR is not always seen as a tragic and miserable situation as we see that sometimes our performance is far better in stressful situation. We are not left with option to lose something, and then it makes us strong enough to fact whatever comes in a way. Haven’t you ever look at the instinctive attack of Cat when someone comes close to its small kittens.
Fear makes it all determined to face a thing rather than redirecting our impulses and thought process to something different. It acts as a driving force when you are left with no choice to either fight with your Enemy or to die in a vice versa situation. So the enemies might be the long term DEPRESSION, Anxiety or a Sense of Losing Someone or Something Really Precious!
It is just a paradigm shift in our daily thoughts and feeling then we will understand that the basic survival instinct comes from the sense of fear inside us. Even if we stop from doing a bad deed and even a small or big crime is due to fear of facing God Almighty in Afterlife. So it is all positive and natural with the birth of human beings. Though it is also a fact that all babies are born without fear of anything!
It is only with the passage of time and age that the elders teach them to be afraid of cuts, wounds, death, fire, fall, robbery and kidnap. But these are necessary to inculcate in the minds of children. Otherwise they can easily be swayed to a direction where they might hurt themselves or others quite unintentionally.
So you need to get the positivity out of an outwardly negative sensibility and feeling. You will love to play with your fears after sometimes, and will love to remove the dangerous and evil kinds of fear factors that are damaging your personality traits or even ruining your or the life of someone close to you!!
