Are you scared? Fear. It is one of the most basic human instincts. It can be a good thing though. Fear helps keep us safe in dangerous situations and can motivate us to make changes in our lives. However, fear taken to the extreme is not good. The media is the worst. What is there not to fear? Fear of war, fear of people who are different from ourselves, fear of disease...etc. Oh, it's enough to drive one batty! No wonder drug companies are making billions on prescriptions for depression and anxiety disorders.
One of the things I'm realizing more and more each day is that there is so little under our control and so little time we have on Earth, so why waste so much energy being scared?
