how do you deal with your fears April 15, 2019

Fear is defined as an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone of something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat. Their is many things to fear in this world like the push of the big red button or being hit by lightning while outside in a storm, or being in the car while your sibling is learning to drive. Most people don’t fear many of the things that I have listed, instead they fear things like spiders which can be easily squashed and usually causes you no harm. As children many of us may of feared the dark thinking that monsters lurked in the corners of the room or under the bed, even after we had our parents check. But slowly we learned that it was just our imagination which made conquering the fear easier so now instead of hiding you imagined that you where a great warrior fighting these monsters and winning. This is just one way to conquer fears, some fears take a long time to deal with and may be required to actually do the feared thing multiple times in order to find out that it is not a bad thing. For example I had a fear of public speaking and it was only after I had done numerous speeches and presentations that I realised that speaking in front of people was not so bad and that I was even good at it. Other times in order to get over a fear there is nothing other to do then just jump. Like the fear of skydiving the only way to truly know is if you just jump out of the plane. Another way to conquer fear is to slowly be exposed of interact with the fear, an example of this is to slowly get rid of or dim a night light in order to not be afraid of the dark. Some times when a person is afraid of something they are greatly affected and may faint or have panic attacks. There is many stories of people fainting at the site of blood. In act 1 scene 5 of Macbeth, Lady Macbeth is reading a letter and their is a line that about the fear not doing some thing then wishing for it to be done. In line 73 lady Macbeth is to alter favour ever is to fear,to me this means that when you wish to change what has been in your favour is to fear the result of it. within act 1 scene 4 Macbeth says yet let that be, which the eye fears, when it is done. The eye fears to look at what pain and suffering that has been created.
