Fear Of The Unknown

It has been often said, we fear what we do not understand. While this may be true you can still fear something even if you understand it. The reason is simple. Fear takes us to a uncomfortable emotional place. It is the experiencing of these things that we don’t like. 


Why we have these feelings is too complicated to figure out and influenced by a zillion factors that make up who we are. Figuring it out wouldn’t help anyway. 


The truth is our emotions play a much larger role in governing our behavior beyond the extremes of emotion such as fear, anger and love. We tend to base our decisions on what will give us a sense of well being. Isn’t it more complicated than that? Probably, but how we “feel” is a pretty big deal.
