All of us are confronted each day with fear. It throws us off balance and puts us in a negative frame of mind, which we cannot easily overcome.
But what is fear? Is it an illusion or is it reality?
The answer is: both. It is an illusion because it is based on the supposition that something bad could happen to us in the near or distant future. We imagine all sorts of bad things, all kinds of scenarios, of which 99% never materialize.
But fear is also reality. Our reality. The feeling of fear is very real, even though our worst fears never come true.
My antidotes to fear: feeling love and feeling grateful. It’s that simple!
