Fear. Everyone has it and everyone has witnessed it. Fear comes in many forms, theres realistic fears, irrational fears, long and short-term fears. And it is amazing how everyone has experienced all of them.  Will Smith once said that fear is something that us human make up, it’s all in our head. And if your religious you know that God didn’t make fear it all comes from Lucifer. But knowing all of this why do we let fear overcome our life and our decisions?

Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me danger is very real but fear is a choice

Will Smith

I can easily answer that question, and it’s because my personal fears are realistic and it can happen. For example, I’m scared that I’m not going to pass my classes, and won’t reach my goals in life. Harsh and straight to the point, but its true. College is hard, and I am only a freshman so it can and will get harder from here, and there’s nothing i can do about that. Yes I can study more and more but some concepts I just won’t understand. And as for reaching my goals? All of mine first start with college, something that I’m struggling with and having  stable job that I love, something that I don’t.

All of my fears have something in the common. They are all in the future and we can not fully determine our feature no matter how hard we try. It is all in our heads, imaginary, fiction. We can not only take that fear and twist and mold it into something positive, but we can not let it stop us from doing what we love. Whats something that you’ve been afraid to do lately?
