Fears can be helpful. They can keep us safe and help us deal cautiously with situations that could harm us. But fear can be paralyzing if it becomes extreme. People can develop fears that become so big to them that the fear can envelope them and make it difficult to live a happy life. You don’t have to live a life of paralyzing fear. You can overcome fear through self help or hypnotherapy and NLP (neuro linguistic programming)
What does fear do?
Not enjoying something is one thing. Intense fear is something else, entirely. Intense fear can change your life. It could make you live with anxiety and depression because the thing you fear may present itself regularly. It could hamper your ability to be happy because you hold back. Whether you’re afraid of public speaking, have a fear of failing, fear of rejection, or an intense fear of clowns, it’s the intensity and associated anxiety that could impact your life negatively.
Some people’s fears become so intense that they stop them from being happy. If you’re deathly afraid of birds, you might avoid going in public. If you’re afraid of clowns, you might choose to avoid children’s parties or have nightmares after seeing a clown. Overcoming fear of rejection could help you find a meaningful relationship. Overcoming fear of failing could help you lead a more adventurous life.
Overcoming fear could help you in your relationship with yourself and with others. Fear inhibits us and hurts our self-esteem. You may be embarrassed about this because some of these fears make you seem childish and weak to others. Fear is real but it can and it should be dealt with.
What’s making you afraid?Some people spend years in therapy, trying to overcome their fear. Some fears rear their heads often and some turn up just once in a while. If something in your life is making you afraid enough to prevent you from feeling happy and healthy, it’s time to do something about it. Whether you choose to go for hypnotherapy or download a self help recording to help you overcome fear, you can change your reaction to certain situations. You can train your brain to react differently when you are presented with a situation that would normally make you fearful.
