Spiders, Lions, failure, death. All examples of fears, all completely rational. Fear is something that I feel a lot, and I seem to have a different view on it to those around me. Time and time again, people have told me that fears are silly and are easy to overcome, but to me that seems easier said than done. If I see potential danger, I am likely to do everything in my power to avoid it. That can stem from not sitting in a certain part of a bus because of the people sitting there, or not running across the road at a red light. Some people I know would call these things stupid, and mock me with insults which is just ignorant in my opinion. I don’t understand the mindset that looking out for yourself makes you less powerful, and especially if you have fears as small as some of mine; fears that some would call irrational. No fear is irrational. I don’t like talking about fear or even using the word fear, I prefer careful.
