Increase your self-esteem by managing fear:
This post continues with fear.
As mentioned in the last post, fear is a powerful, primitive and lifesaving emotion.
Fear makes us aware of dangers and entails important learning mechanisms. We avoid things we fear based on what we have been through and experienced.
Due to the important survival value of fear, research has shown that fear can never be unlearned. It is burnt into the brain/amygdala forever like an old fashioned record.
The aim should instead be to manage fears, knowing one’s vulnerability and not letting the fear impact how you live your life and where you want to go.
One of the most common treatment forms for specific fears is CBT using the technique exposure, which entails relearning that the feared situation, even if uncomfortable, is manageable, see earlier posts.
More about fear and how to conquer it in upcoming post.
