ARTICLE: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FEAR, BY PAUL EKEZE (ASPIRANT, PRESIDENT, PSYCHOLOGY DEPARTMENT, COOU)

F. E. A. R:
FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL.

I have my dream, big dreams, It scares me each day I wake up to it, still I set my plans towards it, I don’t want to fail to attempt.
Everybody has felt this, everybody has for once been down to giving in.

But the most ridiculous thing about this F. E. A. R is that “it is what I fabricate in my mind and pretend it’s real” The fairytale I tell myself that keeps Me from doing what
I really want. It comes mostly in ANXIETY form, and this emotion, anxiety, arises from My thoughts.

I have my grace, but this emotion would hold me down, this emotion would bring up negatives to my thoughts, that which could have been so smooth for me to do, would look difficult.

It’s a feeling, and it’s emotional, but most times uncontrollable, psychologically it will turn a ‘disorder’ if not corrected, it’s ANXIETY.

FIGHTING FEAR

As I can not control the way I feel, I have the power to choose what I think and the way I act.

Control what you think and the way you react to stimuli that comes to you. The way you react to your situations of life.
