You can handle fear – put up with it, get lost, get help


FEARS ARE DUE TO BOTH EXPERIENCES AND INNOCENT TEMPERATURE.

Most of our fears have been learned. A good example is the fear of doctors in children. When a child gets vaccinated from a white-coat caregiver, he or she begins to fear white-coat, not vaccination.

People have fears because they would protect us. The scare of a cramped place and a high place make sense in a way, because it’s not worth going to every place.

But many are also afraid of, for example, the dark, spiders, social situations, swimming or flying.

If fears don’t limit your good life, you don’t have to worry about them.

IF FEAR BEGINS TO LIMIT ORDINARY EVERYDAY LIFE, IT IS GOOD TO DO SOMETHING. Most people get rid of fears on their own.

  • Tolerance is a good way: Expose yourself to fearful situations a little at a time. Try to grow your courage little by little instead of trying to overcome your fear altogether.
  • Fear can also be misleading paying attention elsewhere when scared. The mind can be deceived by doing something else. Even watch TV, listen to the radio or make crafts.

If fears cause severe anxiety, we are already talking about phobias. They can be learned from in therapy.

If fear is learned at some point in life, it can also be learned from. There is good information on fears, anxiety and how to overcome them on the Mental Health House website.
