Fear: Shall I Roller Skate? October 26, 2010

Fear is our protector. Fear teaches us to look both ways before crossing the street.  Fear is our unhealthy friend who talks us into avoiding situations we could cope with. 

Eckhart Tolle in his book The Power of Now states ” The reason you do not put your hand in the fire is not because of fear, it’s because you know that you’ll get burned.”

Fear teaches us to take care of ourselves.  When we are small children our parents have to teach us to fear that which could harm us.  And as we grow up and mature, we learn how to tell the difference between healthy fear/protection and unhealthy fear.

Fear can be unhealthy when we allows fearful feelings to keep us from doing the things in our lives that we both need and want to do.  Those of us who develop irrational fears, which we call phobias, need to seek treatment from a medical professional. For instance, those who fear leaving their homes are in serious trouble, and need help. 

Most likely we will not conquer all of our fears.  At some point in life, we have to make decisions as to which fears it is important to conquer and which to leave alone. For instance, I do not need to conquer my fear of sky diving or scuba diving as I do not have a strong need to do either of those things.  On the other hand, roller skating means a great deal to me, and as an older person perhaps it is something I should not do and so I am fearful of going to a roller skating rink . But because it means alot to me it would be good for me to check with my doctor.   Maybe I can safely roller skate!

Let us each look at our fears and make decisions about which fears to conquer and which fears to leave be.   In doing so, our lives will be more exciting and we will do many more of the things we long to do.
