Fear is the state you are in when you appear to be confronting the unknown or an unknown element of what you feel you already knew. A total unknown situation leaves you open for only one answer, that’s pretty easy. The unknown piece that appears in a known situation is the one that gets you on the ropes. What you knew, or thought you knew, has changed, added or revealed something you didn’t know.  Now your fear is having to reevaluate and change the answer(s) you already thought you knew. The myth is thinking you need time to comprehend the situation when you already know the right thing to do next. The skill of handling fear is controlling the degree of your reaction to it. Remember, it is your fear that is the subject, therefore you control the speed limit on its resolution. Fear must always be resolved…it is the human condition. Regardless of what the fear is or whether it is real or imagined it will always be resolved, with or without your input. Your job is to be the control over your fear and sort them out as they come along. If you do not sort them out they will sort out themselves. You can choose if you live or learn from them or not. Harboring fears only makes them worse and the solution more difficult. Think smart not just quick.

well said, nawsb...fear is one of the most primal and sometimes, irrational, emotions...it is what causes a prey animal to flee, to preserve its life, and can cause a human to do so to, to escape even an imaginary threat

i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
