Types of Fear

Fear comes daily and often in our lives in the form of stress, worry, anxiety and in a variety of other wasteful and negative forms. Let us look at some of the types of fear human beings suffer from:

The unknown – for example, death or a new situation.

Loneliness – sometimes people fear loneliness to the extent that they cannot bear their own company, preferring to lose themselves in superficial (artificial) relationships and activities.

The future – as the problems of the world increase, whether political, economic, environmental or social, this creates, or adds to, personal and collective fear of the future.

Illness – sometimes because of fear of disease, people make their sickness worse than it is, or live in fear of inflicting (getting) something horrible.

Other people – usually this is the greatest fear of all: fear of others’ anger, rejection, judgement and violence.

Failure – some people avoid doing something, or choose not to act, because their fear of failure weakens initiative and confidence.

Authority – this can be fear of a parent, of a boss, even of God. Because authority has often been misused, in order to control and suppress people, it is a normal result that fear, in the form of suspicion and mistrust, has become such a negative force, both personally and collectively, in society.

There are many reasons for these types of fear, but the main ones include:

  • Past experiences, which brought disappointment, insecurity, or wariness (caution)
  • Lack of faith in one’s self and in others
  • The need for approval, to belong, or to be accepted
  • The habit of seeing things negatively

Sometimes may things may not be in our hands. Along with faith in GOD, please have faith in ourselves too. Please do things with good intentions – rest everything will follow in life.

“Courage is not absence of fear. It is the ability to control fear.”

Open your mouth thoughtfully

Once an old man spread rumors that his neighbor was a thief. As a result, the young man was arrested. Days later the young man was proven innocent. After being released he sued the old man for wrongly accusing him.

In the court the old man told the Judge: “They were just comments, didn’t harm anyone.” The judge told the old man: “Write all the things you said about him on a piece of paper. Cut them up and on the way home, throw the pieces of paper out. Tomorrow, come back to hear the sentence.” Next day, the judge told the old man: “Before receiving the sentence, you will have to go out and gather all the pieces of paper that you threw out yesterday.”

The old man said: “I can’t do that! The wind spread them and I won’t know where to find them.” The judge then replied: “The same way, simple comments may destroy the honor of a man to such an extent that one is not able to fix it. If you can’t speak well of someone, rather don’t say anything.”

“Let’s all be masters of our mouths, so that we won’t be slaves of our words.”
