Let’s face it, we all have our own fears and anxieties, but can fear actually be a beneficial factor in making decisions or driving actions? According to a Psych Central article, fear can often be a friend rather than foe, in healthy doses of course.
According to the article, “true fear” is defined as an instinctual and natural reaction one might have when faced with a dangerous situation or that “gut feeling” we all have when something feels a bit, off.
The bottom line? Fear shouldn’t always be repressed, because it ultimately teaches us how to move forward when the comfort zone line becomes more undefined and blurry. Sometimes, it’s ok to let go and let your inner fear act as a guiding voice.
