Fears and Their Effects
There are numerous people which have certain fears and phobias. Speaking of these, we have countless fears we may have, directed towards different things around us. Thus, some people fear certain animals, insects or items, while others fear other things. Anyhow, these fears can make one's life miserable and prevent him/her from functioning normally. That being said, you are to try and give your best to overcoming these fears and enabling yourself a good, healthy life. If you have certain fears and cannot cope with them on your own, feel free to read the following lines and find additional help and useful pieces of advice.
Before thinking about a fear of yours in a negative, fearful way, you should stop and analyze it from a different perspective. For example, if you fear certain insects, think about them and the effect of your contact with them. A spider, if it is not venomous cannot hurt you. Moreover, if it does deliver a bite, it will be far from serous, since most of these are not deadly venomous. However, you should still be realistic and stay away from dangerous, reasonable causes of fears. Still, those, imaginary ones should be dealt with as soon as possible and the best treatment is a good reason.
Secondly, make sure you seek examples in other people. If you fear something, and other individuals, which are in a majority, do not, then your fear is probably baseless. This is a good technique in situations like riding a roller-coaster, where, those who fear the ride may look at all the people who are enjoying it, seeing children and grownups, all having fun without being exposed to danger. Then, you may get motivated and overcome your fear since nothing bad may happen to you when you decide to take a ride on your own. Of course, this method may be applied in other situations too.
Exposure is a cure. Thus, if you fear something, confront it for a prolonged period of time and the fear will disappear. Do not let your fear control you. Rather, control it and get rid of it by doing exactly the thing you fear and getting in contact with your phobias. Nevertheless, if the subject of your fear can harm you and is generally dangerous, find a way of removing it, from your surroundings and your life in general.
For general fear issues, make sure you believe in yourself and motivate yourself daily, boosting your confidence, looking down on your fears, whichever these might be. Make the fear you have comic and easy to confront. Do not believe your fearful judgment is right. Rather, face all of your fears. If you have troubles facing them alone, you might ask for someone's help, informing all the people around you about your phobias and telling them you wish to be free from the fear.
