A Question Of Fear A Question Of Fear

Back we are once more with another question. This time it’s fear. And guess what? I have no fear, at least nothing that holds me back. I’ll get to that. Here is the question:

What are three things you’d do tomorrow if fear wasn’t stopping you?

I do what I want. Fear doesn’t even come into play. Now if I was going down a dark alley in a bad neighborhood, not that I’d be going down a dark alley in a bad neighborhood, I’d fear getting shot. Common fears like that keep you alive. They keep you out of the dark alley and keep you from getting shot. Those I have when called for, no doubt.

But as for fear of things that can impede daily life, nadda. There are things I won’t do because they are stupid, like play with land mines or eating gluten. If it came between the two I’d rather play with land mines.  A much better outcome for me.

Why no fear? It’s quite simple, once you’ve been to hell, you don’t fear anything upon coming back. It’s that easy. Fear, in life instances, not the dark alley, seems totally and utterly a completely stupid concept after that. And so I do what I want when I want, as long as I have the means to do it and I am able to do it.

Fear only holds you back if you let it. If common sense was more common fear would be less common. But hey, at least it isn’t as bad as luck. Fear at least has merit, luck is just some made up term by humans to explain things in their life. I suppose right there is a form of fear, fear to face the truth so people blame a made up concept like luck.

Do you fear anything at your sea? Nope, there is no fear in me. But I would not recommend anyone going to hell to get rid of their fear, it’s not a fun trip.

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

What a thought-provoking post!

I used to be afraid of failure. I never tackled any of my dreams because I was afraid I couldn’t do certain things. I convinced myself I could not succeed.

Then I went through a really hot place, too, just like you, only mine didn’t involve a fire, although I did go through a couple of those, too. Mine was life-changing. I’m not afraid of much anymore. Lightning, extreme heights, sheer cliffs, drunk drivers, fire… Oh, and I’ve never truly conquered my fear of deep water. 🙂

    Once you get down in that spot, nothing much holds you back anymore indeed. Well there could be sharks in that deep water lol

None of my fears are heart-pounding. Most of my fears are really worry about my loved ones.

I know my fears are (usually) baseless, but they putter around, refusing to bug off anyway.

It must be nice not to have fear. I’ve been through hell…it literally felt like that while growing up…but it did the opposite for me. Instead of it making me brave like you and not afraid to do anything, it riddled me with fears.

Nice post! I’m going to work on being more fearless. 🙂

Well said! I couldn’t think of anything I was really afraid of. It was more about money. And for me, I know where I am going, so why fear?

Well I’m glad you take life by the horns. We should catch up for a game of land mine soccer some time 🙂
