[CHAT]: How to do something that scares the shit out of you

7e2cce_7a07bc3597b14826b25ec4be4b6fb42c-mv2.jpg

 

We've all felt that feeling at some point: the butterflies, the racing heart, the tossing and turning in bed at 3am as your brain replays every embarrassing moment of your life. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out how to get past the anxiety and tackle the scary stuff in life. So if you're finding yourself feeling like our mate Charlie Brown (see above), join us live on Monday November 21st at 8pm AEDT or hit 'reply' to start the conversation now!

Heya Everyone!

 

Tonight we are talking all things fear!

 

 

^ Okay, not that fear, but basically what the character represents.

We know that fear is part of everyday life, but what is it? What are some of yours?

 


My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Re: [CHAT]: How to do something that scares the shit out of you

I'd say fear is... the feeling of unpleasantness, panic or apprehension generally centred on an immediate threat. That turned into a really clinical defintion - sorry!

 

Some of my fears are:

 

Making a fool of myself in front of other people

Driving with other people in the car

Not accomplishing "enough" in my life

Not being a good friend/being able to build solid friendships.

 

Aaaaand I'm going to stop there otherwise I'd be here all night, haha!

Hey @stonepixie! Good to see you! 

 

We know that fear is part of everyday life, but what is it? What are some of yours?

 

Fear is a pretty natural response to stuff that might be dangerous, bad, unpleasant, not nice or something else in that area of things that could happen. Fear is often a thing that happens when the thing you're scared of doesn't exist, hasn't happened or might never happen. Although it is also a 100% legit and reasonable reaction a lot of the time too. 

 

I am scared of lots of things. The biggest ones are being squished by a truck on the way to work, leaches, angry people who don't listen and someone getting hurt when i could have helped.

Howdy awesome people.

I can't describe fear, I feel like I'm afraid of everything and my anxiety gets out of control because facing fear seems to hard. I have the typical fear of heights and spiders (to the point of phobias) and I'm also scared of things like the future, failure, abandonment, losing things, disorder, new places, new people, nightmares, I could really go on lol
