Fear: a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined, according to dictionary.com. We all feel fear at some point in our lives; how we navigate that emotion, however, differs for everyone. Topics in this section include:

  • Minimizing, eliminating and handling fear

  • Phobias: what are they, how do we deal with them

  • Worrying about things that don't affect us

  • Negativity based on what we see and hear

Nelson Mandela has said: “The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” Fear is an emotion that we will all experience at some point in our lives; it is also one that we can learn to manage and moderate.
