There are uncountable things the human population is afraid of. But we believe there is something much deadly than a sharpened two-edged sword which happens to be our deepest fear.
There Are A Number Of Fears Within You, Why?
Our deepest fear in life could make us feel insecure always. As simple Beings of flesh and blood, we have so many weaknesses. It is perfectly normal to fall down at certain times. Your imperfection breeds fear of calamities, unforeseen dangers…
Each and every one of us has something strange that sends fear down deep into the spine. This reminds me of a friend who said, she is petrified by water. Uh oh, that’s funny.
Most often you would hear people say “face your fears” Why? Because it is the boldest step any successful mindset person would usually have.
The focus of this post is to help address our deepest fear as mere humans. Our fears vary for various reasons but believe me, there are exceptions which point to the same thing.
After considering many factors, I will pinpoint our greatest fear as humans. Although, there is not just a single fear that haunts us. I assume, there are hundreds of weird things that strike fear in us.
In one of my oldest post, I explained to my lovely readers that:
1. Fear is not real
2. Danger is real
Yes, in actual sense, fear is not real. It is illusional. I am hopeful before you finish reading this article; You will train up your mind to avoid fear. But for the meantime let’s handle the illusional things being our deepest fear.
Our Deepest Fear In Question
What Is our Deepest fear?. So far as I know there are billions of Phobias out there, it would be quite hard to confidently and unarguably distinguish mankind’s greatest fear. The list would go on and on and almost everyone would have something he or she is afraid of and thinks is our greatest fear in life.
For a well known and experienced kind of fear in our world, today it is known as philophobia. This is the fear of falling in love because you surely can’t handle the pains of broken-heart. Few people are emotionally strong and so know how to deal with a broken heart.
Perhaps most of you would agree with me that “Philophobia” is mankind’s deepest fear. Quite debatable though. Others believe “arachnophobia” (fear of spiders) is our deepest fear.
Specialists at Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Germany have confirmed that through experiments. They concluded it is something inherent.
They presented different images of insects, fish, spiders, and flowers to newborn babies(6 months old). These infants reacted with increased pupillary dilation indicating arousal to spiders.
This concluded a greater fear of Spiders.
Even most adults fear Spiders. Before you ask for a further explanation, I suggest you read such a detailed presentation from “Science Alert.”
There are uncountable people living today who are also afraid of death. Over 6000 people die every single hour and that sounds scary. Do you think “death” is supposed to be the deepest fear of the Human population?. No wonder some people are even afraid to fall asleep( hypnophobia). The possible reason is that of nightmares. Fear is Evil!, kill it before it is too late.
Religion plays a significant role in reminding people of the journey from our earth to the Spiritual world. Death is inevitable, it is waiting for everyone with eagerness. But what makes it scarier is about the fate of the sinner. Most of us Christians believe in Hellfire which sounds more fierce than anything else.
Looking at our world today, it is obvious that our deepest fear is about the fear of losing someone you love. It could be a mere relationship breakup or death of a loved one. The pains are always unbearable and since you are not ready for that you panic in every step you take and in every word you utter.
Our Deepest Fear And How It Entangles Us
Believe or not, love is the greatest thing about human nature/feeling. If you really love someone you would never hurt him/her, but since tomorrow is not promised even at the peak of a relationship someone would have butterflies in the stomach.
Getting broken-hearted is not a Joke. It could put you on a hospital ( mental hospital) bed or send you to your early grave.
The Bible makes it concise by saying:
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love.” (1 John 4:18)
If you are in love and still in fear, fix it or leave before the fear drives away the love between you and your supposed lover.
So far as love is very powerful, it’s abuse would inflict excruciating pains in the lives of the persons in question.
So to finalize it all, our deepest fear is to lose someone we really love. This fear could haunt you throughout your entire life. You may find it difficult living a normal life because you would always feel insecure.
A Simple Advice
Any inspirational person or motivational speaker will tell you straight away that fear is not real. If you live in fear, you would hardly feel happy. That might kill you earlier.
Research indicates that those who fear death are the ones who die early. Can you spare yourself some time and kill that fear in you?. Be fearless like the lion.
The mind is the greatest weapon, feed it with a positive thought. Adopt the power of resilience to negatives. Train yourself to be emotionally strong.
If you are a Christian, you would need the intervention of the Holy Spirit. Just pray and ask God to cast away all your fears and strengthen you to face all the pains without breaking.
“Boldness doesn’t mean rude, obnoxious, loud, or disrespectful. Being bold is being firm, sure, confident, fearless, daring, strong, resilient, and not easily intimidated. It means you’re willing to go where you’ve never been, willing to try what you’ve never tried, and willing to trust what you’ve never trusted. Boldness is quiet, not noisy.”
