There is a lot of information out there on how to hide, mask, or just cope with your fear but not much on how to overcome fear. Franklin D. Roosevelt said; “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Many people suffer from fears in the form of phobias that can be crippling in their lives. Some fear that they will have a panic attack if they leave their homes to face these fears. They truly fear the fear itself, and this causes them anxiety and panic attacks. However, there is a simple method to get rid of fear including phobias, anxiety, and panic attacks. But, first of all, we need to discuss the difference between a fear and a phobia: Fear itself is a natural reaction to something that is a real danger. Humans are programmed to fear things that might cause harm. The heart races, adrenaline pumps, and the body feel the need to flee. If we did not have this natural reaction, mankind would not have survived this long.
Phobias are built up from a fear into an irrational feeling of panic. They can seem ridiculous to some, but are very real to those who suffer from them. Usually, a phobia is caused by some traumatic event or can be present at birth. Phobias can cause anxiety that keeps you from leaving your house. You might have panic attacks which might make you think you are having a heart attack.
Now, that we have discussed the differences between fears and phobias, we need to learn about the different types of each.
The types of fear vary from healthy to debilitating. Healthy fears are those we have for people in authority. This type of fear is not to make you flee, but is more of a great respect for the person we fear. We admire them, and the fear part produces discipline. There are fears that startle us into the fleeing reaction which gets us out of danger. Debilitating fears make us so afraid that we can’t move.
The types of phobia are even more numerous and go from fear of heights to fear of dairy products. They stem from natural fears and develop into an irrational fear. For instance, if someone was struck by lightning, they might develop a phobia that causes them to panic at the sight of a cloud. The initial fear was relevant, but the end result becomes irrational.
If you are suffering from a debilitating phobia, you have probably already researched a lot of information on how to deal with it. You have learned different methods of how to suppress your fear or to manage it in the hope that, one day, it will just go away. These methods can help you to cope with your fear, but they do not teach you to end your fear of fear.
