How To Face Your Fears

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown” – H.P. Lovecraft

Fear of darkness, death, Darth Vader, pain, spiders, heights, interactions or any normal social fear that deters you from doing what you want creeps inside and abandon you helpless. The moment you have a face-off with your fear, Goosebumps! Run-Run!

Why do we fear? It remains a mystery. But we brew fear in the span of our growth and continue to have it in our hearts. The fear cements itself in the body and soul. We all are in fear now. In deep fear.

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear” – Nelson Mandela

Don’t worry; nobody has ever evolved into something totally fearless. It’s just about getting over it when needed. A spoon of courage and inspiration will surely help you win over your darkest fears.

  •  Know your fears

The most difficult thing in life is to know yourself but listing fears is not that hard. Try to think about the things you are afraid of. Be it social interactions, mingling, public speaking, dogs, spiders, heights, crowd, touch, loneliness, snakes etc.

  •  It takes more than a day to become Superman

Fear doesn’t vanish in a click of your fingers. It requires time and patience. Select a fear which you want to work on. Ponder over it and find out the way by which you can end it.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” ― Frank Herbert

  •  Lights, Camera, Action

Think less, speak less and act more. Only one thing can help you conquer your fears, action. Act! Act! Act! If you find it intimidating to say hello to somebody, hold your heart and just do it. It is difficult, but nothing comes easy in life. It is the obstacles and difficulties which makes the win delightful.

Scare, Talk, Yell, Laugh, Enjoy (STYLE)

  1. Be mad and Scare away your fear.
  2.  Talk about the fear with everybody and get ideas.
  3. Yell out loud out of your window (This doesn’t have to do anything with fear, have fun)
  4.  Laugh out, how weird you were to have that crazy fear.
  5.  Enjoy and reward yourself after winning over your fear.
  • Boil the blood

If by all methods you are not able to overcome your fears then you should be very serious. Learn from batman. Let anger take over you and turn your fear into your power. Boil your blood. You are a Superman. You can do anything.

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure” – Paulo Coelho
