Fear makes us feel like we’ve lost control, like we’re standing on the edge of a cliff preparing to jump into the unknown. Our heart races, we feel it pounding in our chests like it’s trying to escape, like it’s trying to break free. Perspiration drips from our forehead. Unbeknown to us, sometimes, this can be an irrational feeling, but it feels so real at the time. It is normal to feel fear, this is how we protect ourselves, it’s our survival mode which has been with us since the start of man, but it’s when it becomes irrational, that’s the problem. Although most of the time this irrational fear won’t go away, there are thankfully techniques that can control it, for some, these are a God send, for others, they don’t work, there constantly trying to climb out of a never ending pit of despair.
