Being afraid is often a feeling perceived as negative. Fear is actually an engine of our survival. Only the fool is not afraid. The mechanisms of fear are numerous, generally linked to our past, our culture and our life. In the face of these fears, we have several defense mechanisms such as flight or fight< /strong>. When fear sets in and we can neither flee nor fight, it is imprinted on us. Fear drives many emotions, both defensive and offensive, but also reactions or over-reaction to our environment. Fear also has its protective virtues. Why don’t I throw myself into the void? Because I’m afraid to die.Only the crazy, the imbecile or the irresponsible are not afraid.
Beliefs also play a role in our fears. Limiting beliefs are those that we can overcome with our courage. But some beliefs are justified, such as putting your hand in the fire, you are sure to get burned. Fear sometimes preserves us from irreversible errors and in a way from future or future suffering.
